I don’t know how American Sniper’s absolute dominance at the box office will shake up the awards race, but right now, it still looks like Boyhood is the film to beat.  The London Film Critics Circle named the coming-of-age Film of the Year while also awarding Richard Linklater for Best Director and Patricia Arquette for Best Supporting Actress.  The other acting categories are also firming up with Michael Keaton winning Best Actor for Birdman, Julianne Moore getting Best Actress for Still Alice, and J.K. Simmons continuing to dominate in Best Supporting Actor for Whiplash.

As for LFCC’s British awards, the group recognized Under the Skin for British Film of the Year, Timothy Spall for Best British Actor (Mr. Turner), Rosamund Pike for Best British Actress (Gone Girl, What We Did on Our Holiday), Alex Lawther for Young British Performer (The Imitation Game), and Yann Demange for British Breakthrough Director (’71).  Hit the jump for the full list of winners.
