The 2014 Screen On Screen Critics' Tally has concluded, with only the Chlotrudis Society yet to reveal its winners and the results of their voting not significant enough points-wise to affect the poll as a whole. Boyhood places top in 4 of the 16 categories, Birdman in 3, with Boyhood winning Best Picture and Director. All five Best Picture nominees are granted at least one award; two are absent from the Best Director lineup, though, which grants recognition for two prominent Oscar snubs, Ava DuVernay and David Fincher.
