The Southeastern Film Critics Association have added to the year-end discussion, becoming the second group to hand top honors to Wes Anderson's “Grand Budapest Hotel.” The film won the Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and Best Ensemble prizes. Ava DuVernay's “Selma,” meanwhile, won the Gene Wyatt Award, given to a film that best evokes the spirit of the South (while a personal favorite, “Cold in July,” came in second place there).
