2nd Annual Boston Online Film Critics Association Awards
The Boston Online Film Critics Association (BOFCA) announced their awards today, on December 7th, 2013, with giving away the Best Picture award to Steve McQueen‘s 12 Years a Slave which was the biggest winner of the night, also winning Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Editing and Best Original Score awards. This is such a remarkable achievement for 12 Years a Slave because it’s finally starting to get some critics love which will probably continue until the Oscars.
Other great winner includes Jared Leto for Best Supporting Actress for his role in Dallas Buyers Club. Leto is my most favorite Oscar front-runner at the moment, because whatever he does, he does with extreme passion.
One thing that I completely disliked about the BOFCA awards this year is that instead of Spike Jonze’s Her, the stupid Spring Breakers is in the list of top 10 films. Utterly ridiculous!
Last year, only 2 BOFCA winners eventually won the Oscar, i.e. Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis and Best Supporting Actress for Anne Hathaway. Let’s see what happens this time.
