14th Annual New York Film Critics Online Awards

The New York Film Critics Online (NYFCO) announced their awards on December, 7th, 2014 with giving away the Best Picture award to none other than Boyhood, directed by Richard Linklater who also won the Best Director award. The acting awards are really spot on, and it’s safe to say that J.K. Simmons is one of the front-runners for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar this year for his role in Whiplash.

Last year, 7 NYFCO winners won the Oscar, i.e. Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay and Best Cinematography. Let’s see if NYFCO gets it right this time as well.
