Boston Society of Film Critics Pick Zero Dark Thirty, Day Lewis, and Riva

The Boston Film Critics have continued the trend, which shows favor to the films Zero Dark Thirty (taking home Best Film, Best Director, and Best Editing) and Lincoln (taking home Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Screenplay).

A couple of films became a little bit more popular with this critics group, and they were Moonrise Kingdom, Amour, and Perks of Being a Wallflower.  I think of these three films all have potential to do well, or at least score a couple of nominations with the Academy.  I was pleasantly surprised to see Ezra Miller win; he was terrific in this film.  I hope the Academy does not forget the wide array of talent in film.
