Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards 2014


Where to begin? LAFCA just wrapped up their hours long live-tweeting/in-room-voting charade (sorry if I sound angry, I am just sleepy). "Boyhood" was the big winner of the night winning picture, director, editing and actress... lead actress for Patricia Arquette. LA critics are known to surprise with their different choices, there were some rather big shocks this time. The category switch wasn't the only thing. Tom Hardy unexpectedly won best actor for "Locke", not a fan but I admire Mr. Hardy's work in it. Still in a year with such stellar performances... well..

The beautiful Polish film "Ida" not only won foreign language prize but also supporting actress for Agata Kulesza. "Inherent Vice" and "Under the Skin" tied for best score while "The Grand Budapest Hotel" won best production design. Boyhood seems like it will be the critics darling everybody thought it will be, it won all three awards today. J.K. Simmons looks very strong as well.
