'12 Years a Slave' Rules the Boston Online Film Critics Awards

See also

The Boston Film Critics Online have just announced their awards for 2013 with Steve McQueen's slavery drama "12 Years a Slave" taking six awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actress.

A few other films were able to pick up an award or two, including Best Screenplay for the outstanding "Before Midnight," and another win each for Cate Blanchett (Best Actress for "Blue Jasmine") and Jared Leto (Best Supporting Actor for "Dallas Buyers Club").

Their top ten was a little more eclectic than we've seen from the other groups, ranging from a terrible film ("Spring Breakers") to a masterpiece ("Gravity").

In the coming days, we'll be seeing results from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (Dec. 8th), as well as my own group, the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association (Dec. 9th), so be sure to check back for the winners.
