Yet another win for “Boyhood” and director Richard Linklater, but “Birdman” takes some pretty high profile wins away from it, with Michael Keaton getting his first real win, while Emma Stone’s name pops up for the first time this season. Emmanuel Lubezki wins another Best Cinematography category for his work in “Birdman” while “Boyhood” takes Best Editing and Best Ensemble. To make things even more interesting, “Boyhood” and “Birdman” tied in the Best Screenplay category. Two names we are getting used to seeing are Marion Cotillard and J.K. Simmons who take Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor respectively. Expect even more to see their names come Oscar night, with Simmons becoming a frontrunner for winning the category in my opinion. “The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya” wins Best Animated Feature, swinging into the mix with “The Lego Movie” and “How To Train Your Dragon 2”. And “CitizenFour” becomes the documentary for “Life Itself” to beat in the Best Documentary category. Here is the official list for the Boston Society Of Film Critics Awards:
