Boyhood Wins San Francisco Film Critics’ Top Honors

By

More West Coast critics have expressed their adoration for Richard Linklater's coming-of-age film Boyhood. The movie proved it owned the Bay Area, bagging four awards — which included Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Editing — at the 2014 San Francisco Film Critics Circle Awards on Sunday. Close on its heels were Birdman, with three awards (Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Original Screenplay), and Ida, with two (Best Foreign-Language Picture, Best Cinematography). Charlie McDowell's The One I Love also received a special nod for underappreciated independent cinema. Below is the full list of winners.
