One of top groups in what I refer to as the 2nd-tier of critics, the Boston Film Critics have announced their winners for the year, right on the heels of Los Angeles announcing earlier.
The Boston Online Critics announced previously, and they went with Zero Dark Thirty. Well, the Boston Society has taken a similar path, and another win is chalked up on the board for Bigelow's bin laden film.
