‘Goodbye To Language’ The Surprise Best Picture Winner In The National Society Of Film Critics Awards

'Goodbye To Language' The Surprise Best Picture Winner In The National Society Of Film Critics Awards

While it seems that Richard Linklater‘s “Boyhood” has all the love and acclaim to carry it through to a plethora of Oscar nominations, and probably a handful of wins too, the National Society Of Film Critics say, “non.” The group announced their winners over the weekend, and it was a film from a grumpy French legend that came out on top instead.

Jean-Luc Godard‘s “Goodbye To Language” was the surprise Best Picture winner — by one vote — with the digital arthouse movie, featuring the 3D sequencing that everyone is talking about but no one has seen, beating the little indie that could. Elsewhere, the winners were what you might expect, with no big shakeups, and Richard Linklater took Best Director anyway. And in case you’re wondering if this will have any bearing on the Oscar voting, not a chance.

Check out the full list of winners below. [Vulture]
