Boston Society of Film Critics Announce

December 12, 2010 Leave a comment

The BSFC, one of my favorite critics groups, just made a surprise announcement of their awards for the year. Guess who won? All of this love almost makes me feel guilty. Almost. It’s not necessarily a surprise win, but definitely a big win, as well, being that it defeated “The Fighter” which is all Boston, all day long. Definitely the highlight of these awards is Jesse Eisenberg’s huge win against Colin Firth. I’m still not convinced that he is a huge contender for the win. However, every day there is growing proof that his NBR win was no fluke. Also, I’m very happy that Juliette Lewis snagged this, even if it’s her only award of the season. As I highlighted in my review, she is a true standout.
