    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.

    Here is the complete list of winners:

    Best Picture
    “Snowpiercer”

    1st Annual Boston Online Film Critics Association Awards 

    The Boston Online Film Critics Association (BOFCA) announced their awards today, on December 8th, 2012, with giving away the Best Picture award to rather obvious Kathryn Bigelow’s direction and co-production, ZERO DARK THIRTY.

    Interesting thing to notice here is that the Best Foreign Language Film award went to Norwegian drama film Oslo, August 31st instead of French drama film and winner of 84th National Board of Review Awards and 78th New York Film Critics Circle Awards, Amour. Amour has found itself in competition with other movies now. Another interesting thing and quite great one is that Roger Deakins won the award for Best Cinematography for his amazing camera work in 23rd James Bond film Skyfall. Deakins really deserves a nomination as well as a real win in the Academy Awards. Jonny Greenwood won the award for Best Original Score for the film The Master. Let’s see how far he goes in this season.

    Here is the complete list of winners:

    BEST PICTURE: ZERO DARK THIRTY

    BEST DIRECTOR: Kathryn Bigelow (ZERO DARK THIRTY)

    BEST ACTOR: Daniel Day-Lewis (LINCOLN)

    BEST ACTRESS: Jessica Chastain (ZERO DARK THIRTY)

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Tommy Lee Jones (LINCOLN)

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Anne Hathaway (LES MISÉRABLES)

    BEST SCREENPLAY: Tony Kushner (LINCOLN)

    BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM: OSLO, AUGUST 31ST

    BEST DOCUMENTARY: HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE

    BEST ANIMATED FILM: PARANORMAN

    BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY: Roger Deakins (SKYFALL)

    BEST EDITING: William Goldenberg & Dylan Tichenor (ZERO DARK THIRTY)

    BEST ORIGINAL SCORE: Jonny Greenwood (THE MASTER)

    BEST ENSEMBLE CAST: MOONRISE KINGDOM

    THE TEN BEST FILMS OF THE YEAR:

    1. ZERO DARK THIRTY
    2. BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD
    3. LINCOLN
    4. MOONRISE KINGDOM
    5. DJANGO UNCHAINED
    6. OSLO, AUGUST 31ST
    7. HOLY MOTORS
    8. THE MASTER
    9. ARGO
    10. CLOUD ATLAS

    CLOUD ATLAS was announced as the TOP WORST MOVIE of 2012 by TIME Magazine, considering that it is a pretty bold move by BOFCA to include it in their top 10 films of the year.

    LIFE OF PI still haven’t won anything but as we know that the best is yet to come, so let’s hope for the best!
