BOFCA Awards

The Boston Online Film Critics Association, of which I am a member, has voted on it's innaugural year-end awards.

The big winner is "Zero Dark Thirty," taking Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress. Daniel Day Lewis gets Best Actor for "Lincoln." Go here for the full roster of winners and the "Top Ten" list that "ZDT" topped to win.

Since someone is going to ask, I can tell you that three out of the four acting categories match my personal picks (everybody got three ranked picks per category save for Best Picture which was a 1-10 ranked list, I believe individual ballots will be posted sometime next week) which is pretty cool; and that not only do I have no serious "disagreement" with any of the winners I think it's an exceptionally good roster.

P.S. For the record: Every elligible film has been screened for critics as of today. While reviews and/or public opinions are embargoed on some of them (i.e. YES I've seen Django, ZDT, The Hobbit and Les Miserables but NO I can't tell you if they're good yet) awards are not. I'm aware that that doesn't make much sense, but we don't make the rules.
