Oscars Watch: 2014 Online Film Critics Society Awards

This late in the game, you are not making a splash anymore unless you are like the San Diego Film Critics naming “Nightcrawler” the Best Film of the year or the Online Film Critics naming “The Grand Budapest Hotel” the best. Still Richard Linklater (“Boyhood”) gets Best Director and the acting and screenplay awards are exactly the same. But instead of placing “Boyhood” in the number one spot, Wes Anderson’s latest is given a shot and in all honesty, there is no reason his film does not make one of the 9-10 spots of the Oscar Best Picture. That also pass up Emmanuel Lubezki to give Robert Yeoman Best Cinematography for his work on “The Grand Budapest Hotel” as well. Despite “Two Days, One Night” not making the final Oscar cut, it, too, gets a win for Best Foreign Language Film.
