DETROIT FILM CRITICS SOCIETY AWARD WINNERS REVEALED


Boyhood takes home an impressive four awards from five nominations at the Detroit Film Critics Society, who announced their award winners today, the 15th of December. With only ten categories, their slate is a small one, though not one without its curiosities: specifically, a three-way tie for Best Ensemble, though with only 18 critics in the group, it's a wonder there weren't more ties. And Rosamund Pike continues to break away from the pack with yet another Best Actress win. Here are the group's nominations and, below, their winners:
