Home Movies “12 Years A Slave” Chosen Best Picture by Boston Film Critics

The Boston Film Critics are the first to choose Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave” as Best Picture. They also awarded McQueen Best Director and the star of that film, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Best Actor. It’s about freakin’ time. I’m not sure if they took a big lunch break, too, like the LA Film Critics. (They’ve gone for an avocado salad after a tiring morning.) But the Boston critics rock.
