Everyone who reads this site knows that for one month every year I go down the deep hole known as Award season where I have to cram 40 or 50 movies into a short 3 week period. As a member of the Washington, DC Area Film Critics Association, I’m sort of proud to say we have a pretty solid track record of predicting eventual Oscar Nominations and winners. This year several of my picks did make it and for the first time ever, I had a nomination pick in every category that I voted in. Disappointed that Selma didn’t receive any love, but then the screenings were held at odd times that folks couldn’t catch it. There was no chance my pick for Chris Evans as Best Actor was going to make it to the nomination round. Agony!
As usual WAFCA selects the one movie that I didn’t see as Best Film. I don’t know where I was when Boyhood was screened earlier this year and the studio sent over an screener link to view the movie – but I’m sorry, my home internet sucks and viewing online screeners is an awful experience.
Anyhoo, Richard Linklater‘s ambitious little film Boyhood cleans up in this year’s WAFCA Awards garnering Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress and Best Youth Performance. The Michael Keaton lead Birdman also cleaned up winning Best Actor, Best Screenplay and Best Editing. Here’s the full list.
