3rd Annual Boston Online Film Critics Association Awards

The Boston Online Film Critics Association (BOFCA) announced their awards on December 6th, 2014 with giving away the Best Picture award to Snowpiercer which is a complete surprise and such a bold decision by the critics to give the top prize to that film. Best Director went to Alejandro González Iñárritu for his marvelous work in Birdman. Also, it’s great to see Calvary getting some love from the critics.

Last year, only 5 BOFCA winners won the Oscar, i.e. Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Animated Feature. I’m sure Snowpiercer isn’t going to win anything big at the Oscars, so let’s see what happens this year.
