‘Boyhood’ named best film by New York Film Critics Online

Sunday afternoon, the New York Film Critics Online organization voted on and announced its 2014 award winners, including “Boyhood” as Best Picture. In the past, NYFCO”s echoed the major contenders in each category, adding to a snowball effect for films like previously named Best Pictures like “12 Years a Slave,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” and “The Artist.” This year sticks to the trend, with familiar picks popping up in the organization's major categories.
