Boston Film Critics Hails "12 Years a Slave," "The Wolf of Wall Street" Always a Bridesmaid  


There were some drama at this year's Boston Society of Film Critics' annual awards! Hayao Miyazaki's wonderful animated film, "The Wind Rises," was called "morally repugnant" by voting member Inkoo Kang from the Village Voice. But in the end, Miyazaki's movie won against "Frozen" because three members abstained from voting.

"12 Years a Slave" emerged as the big winner while Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" became the perennial runner-up.

Here's the complete list of the 2013 Boston Society of Film Critics awards:
