‘Boyhood’ Wins at U.K. Critics’ Awards as U.S. Talent Triumphs

LONDON — American movie talent triumphed Sunday at the London Critics’ Circle awards, which took place at London’s May Fair Hotel, while local pics, like “The Theory of Everything,” “Mr Turner” and “The Imitation Game,” were shut out of the main categories.

“Boyhood” came out on top, taking the film award, with Richard Linklater nabbing the director prize and the supporting actress award going to Patricia Arquette.

Other top honors were shared among some of the other leading American contenders in the awards season. Wes Anderson took the screenwriter prize for “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” Michael Keaton was crowned top actor for “Birdman,” Julianne Moore was named best actress for “Still Alice” and the supporting actor prize went to J.K. Simmons for “Whiplash.”

Jonathan Glazer’s “Under the Skin,” which stars Scarlett Johansson, was named British film of the year.
