L.A., New York, and Boston Critics awards roundup

Posted on

Sunday was a busy day for film critics on both coasts. Boston, New York, and Los Angeles Film Critics announced their annual awards, adding fuel to the Oscar-prediction fire with a strong showing for 12 Years a Slave in the Best Picture arena.

Other repeat honorees include Blue Jasmine’s Cate Blanchett for Best Actress, 12 Years a Slave’s Chiwetel Ejiofor for Best Actor, Dallas Buyers Club’s Jared Leto for Best Supporting Actor, and 12 Years a Slave’s Lupita Nyong’o for Best Supporting Actress. Cinematography awards mostly went to Emmanuel Lubezki for his work on Gravity, and Inside Llewyn Davis picked up a few nods for T Bone Burnett’s score. Some categories were more evenly divided: Alfonso Cuaron and Steve McQueen both got two Best Director acknowledgements for their work on Gravity and 12 Years a Slave.

Take a look at the complete roundup below.
