Track the 2014 Season with ‘The Awards Matrix’
More critics groups weighed in on their selections for the Best Films of 2014 and Boyhood is still holding strong. The film by Richard Linklater was the choice for Best Picture by both the San Francisco Film Critics Circle and the Toronto Film Critics Association, while the Online Film Critics picked The Grand Budapest Hotel for their Best Picture. Linklater, however, took Best Director by all three groups.
Outside of North America, the European Film Awards handed out its winners last weekend with Poland's Ida winning a slew of prizes including Best European Film, Best Director for Pawel Pawlikowski as well as screenplay and cinematography nods. The film also won the EFA's People's Choice Award. Timothy Spall (Mr. Turner) and Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night) won the lead actor prizes at the event which took place this year in the Latvian capital, Riga. Cotillard was also the choice for the Toronto critics, but for her role in The Immigrant. The Online and San Francisco film critics both picked Michael Keaton for Best Actor for Birdman.
