Las Vegas Film Critics Society Awards 2014


Las Vegas Film Critics Society announced their winners a short while ago. "Birdman" had yet another sweep, "Boyhood" yet again a no show. This is troubling! The Alejandro González Iñárritu directed film won picture, director, lead actor, screenplay, cinematography, score and ensemble. Reese Witherspoon has another win for "Wild" while Tilda Swinton won supporting actress for her strangely fascinating performance in "Snowpiercer". This group had a unique pick for costume design, awarding it to "Guardians of the Galaxy" which also won best action film. They had many awards to give, there is a big list of them which you can check out below. Oh and LVFCS gets plus points for awarding the song "I Love You All" from "Frank". Check out the winners:
