SELMA SWEEPS BLACK FILM CRITICS CIRCLE AWARDS


As Selma opens in American theatres and its message rings both loud and soft through American streets, the film is picking up some serious heat in the Oscar race. The Black Film Critics Circle, a splinter organisation from the AAFCA, falls in line with that group by naming Ava DuVernay's film the best of 2014. Their appreciation for the film is even more extensive, though, than AAFCA's, as it is honoured with six awards from BFCC. Here are all of the results of voting:
