Boston Online Film Critics Association Winners – ‘You Were Never Really Here’ Hammers the Competition


You Were Never Really Here” fails to live up to its title. The Boston Online Film Critics Association honored it with four prizes for its yearly awards this week. It managed to win Best Picture, Best Director for Lynne Ramsay, Best Editing, and Best Score. So as awards season progresses, people may be reminded that “You Were Never Really Here” was truly here all along.

Anyhow, Ethan Hawke and Toni Collette won Best Actor and Actress, respectively. Also, there was some love for “Support The Girls” which won Best Ensemble and landed a spot in their Top 10. Lastly, like Hawke and Collette, Richard E. Grant and Regina King continue their critical dominance as well.
