BOYHOOD TAKES NYFCC AS AWARDS SEASON BEGINS


No big surprises today as awards season commenced with the New York Film Critics Circle's announcement of their favourites of 2014. Critics' darling Boyhood reaped three awards, including the top prize of Best Picture, as expected. The only notable spoiler (of sorts) was Marion Cotillard, who won Best Actress for two great performances: in the Dardennes' Two Days, One Night, and James Gray's New York-set The Immigrant, which was also the deserved recipient of a Best Cinematography prize for Darius Khondji. Keep checking back for updates as runners-up could be leaked within the coming days, though not by Lou Lumenick...
