Oscar underdog “The Hurt Locker” dominated this year’s Boston Society of Film Critic’s year ends awards winning Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Editing and Best Cinematography. 

Not as surprising, Mo’Nique and Christoph Waltz pulled out wins in the Best Supporting categories for “Precious” and “Inglourious Basterds” respectively.  Some pleasant surprises included “Star Trek” tying “Precious” for Best Ensemble and “District 9’s” Neill Blomkamp winning for Best New Filmmaker.  Strangely, critic’s favorites “An Education” and “Up in the Air” were shut out for the honors.
