‘Boyhood’ Wins Best Picture At Critics’ Choice Awards
Such an incredible win for Boyhood! The entire cast and crew could not have been more thrilled to accept the night’s big honor! Aside from winning the big award of the night, Patricia Arquette won for Best Supporting Actress and director, Richard Linklater won for Best Director.
The coming of age film follows the journey of a young boy named Mason as he grows up between the ages of 5 and 18. Mason is played by Ellar Coltrane who won for Best Young Actor.
The film was up against some pretty stiff competition at this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards. The other nominees for best picture were: Birdman, Gone Girl, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game, Nightcrawler, Selma, The Theory of Everything, Unbroken and Whiplash.
This is not the first win for the highly talked about film. On Jan. 11, at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards Boyhood won the awards for Best Drama, Richard won for Best Director and Patricia won for supporting actress for her portrayal of Olivia Evans.
The film has also been nominated for six Oscars — so we are sure that we will be seeing plenty more from this cast in the future!
