The Boston Society of Film Critics named Boyhood as 2014’s best picture and also tabbed it for four other awards, including best director, editing, screenplay and ensemble cast. Birdman was right behind, with four awards, including Michael Keaton and Emma Stone for acting and Emmanuel Lubezki for cinematography. Birdman’s four screenwriters tied with Boyhood writer/director Richard Linklater for best screenplay.
Other winners included best actress Marion Cotillard for both her celebrated performances this year, The Immigrant and Two Days, One Night. J.K. Simmons of Whiplash won for best supporting actor, and The Tale of Princess Kaguya won for best animated film, as each did in today’s voting by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (which is still going on in our live blog coverage).
