12 Years a Slave took home three prizes at the Boston Society of Film Critics (BSFC) today, winning Picture, Director for Steve McQueen, and Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor. The other big winner was Enough Said, which won Best Screenplay, and James Gandolfini won Supporting Actor for the film. The other most note able fact about the BSFC is that The Wolf of Wall Street made a lot of waves as the runner-up in many categories. Cate Blanchett also continued her dominance at the critics group; she and Jared Leto have been continuously the two names present between winners, and runner-ups.
Boston Globe critic Ty Burr stated that many, including himself were not able to see a screening of Wall Street, but believe it could have done better, beating Slave even for Best Picture if it had been seen by more.
