Boston Society of Film Critics Awards: ‘Boyhood,’ Michael Keaton, Marion Cotillard

While the Boston film critics have been handing out awards since 1980, they have foreseen only 10 of the Best Picture winners at the Oscars. However, last year, the Beantown scribes went for eventual Oscar champ “12 Years a Slave” in a big way, with four wins including Best Picture. That biopic had been shunned by both the New York and Los Angeles critics in favor of “American Hustle” and both “Gravity” and “Her” respectively. 

Below, the winners and runners-up of the 34th annual edition of these awards.

  1. MARION AGAIN??? Am I dreaming or what? I mean, seriously, I’m over the moon right now! She continues to sweep the awards season so far with her incomparable performance in Two Days, One Night and from the bottom of my heart, I wish she will keep on doing that, even if I still highly doubt that (Julianne Moore is the clear frontrunner). There’s no question though in regards to which is the best female performance of the year and that’s what truly matters. Cotillard practically rewrites the rules of acting through her already legendary performance as Sandra Bya in Two Days, One Night. “You put up a good fight Sandra” (anyone who saw the film will understand what I’m saying).

  2. @ StergiosIsACunt You are the stupid pendejo and I didn’t spoil ANYTHING. You have literally no idea of how the movie ends. If you think you do just from a phrase I used, you are seriously mistaken. You’re so incredibly stupid that mere words cannot do justice to your stupidity. Buy an new brain, loser.
