12 Years a Slave tops Boston Film Critics Society 2013 Awards (photo: Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor in ’12 Years a Slave’) The Boston Society of Film Critics announced its 2013 winners earlier today. They were much quicker at it than their fellow critics on the West Coast; the Los Angeles Film Critics Association members have been debating their favorites for the past two hours and a half hours. In Boston, the film critics selected 12 Years a Slave as the top film of 2013. Steve McQueen’s slavery drama won awards for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor, who plays a free black man kidnapped and forced into slavery in a Southern plantation. 12 Years a Slave is the second movie in a row to be a major awards-season contender, following Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, which ultimately won Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz).
