‘Goodfellas’ Gets Best-Film Vote From Boston Crix

The Boston Society of Film Critics feted “Goodfellas” and “Reversal Of Fortune” at their annual meeting Jan. 6, with crime being a constant theme in nearly all the films honored.

Martin Scorsese was voted best director for “Goodfellas,” and the film’s Joe Pesci was named best supporting actor. Pesci’s selection was the quickest vote of the day, getting the nod on the first ballot.

“Reversal Of Fortune” was cited for Jeremy Irons’ performance as Claus von Bulow and for Nicholas Kazan’s screenplay.

Among actresses, the society’s winners were each honored for their work in two films. Anjelica Huston was named best actress for “The Witches” and “The Grifters,” while Jennifer Jason Leigh got the supporting nod for “Miami Blues” and “Last Exit To Brooklyn.”

Only other winner for two films was cinematographer Vittorio Storaro, cited for “Dick Tracy” and “The Sheltering Sky.”

The only dissension at an unusually harmonious meeting for the Hub scribes was in the documentary and foreign-language categories. In the former, no award was given when the only serious contender, “For All Mankind,” was unable to garner a majority of votes.

“Monsieur Hire” and “The Nasty Girl” battled it down to the wire for the foreign-language award, with the prize going to the man who likes to watch (“Monsieur Hire”) instead of the girl who likes to talk.
