Katheryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty."
Sony Pictures Katheryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty."

According to their press release, the Boston Online Film Critics Association (BOFCA) was founded in May of this year to "foster a community of web-based film critics and provide them with a supportive group of colleagues and a professional platform for their voices to be heard." In their first year of existence, they threw their support behind Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" which won four of their inaugural awards, including Best Editing, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Film of the Year. Not to be anything more than slightly outdone, Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" walked away with three awards of its own -- Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis. The group also honored "How to Survive a Plague" (Best Documentary), "Oslo, August 31st" (Best Foreign Language Film), and "Skyfall" for Roger Deakins' insanely gorgeous cinematography.

Here's the full list of BOFCA winners:

Best Film: "Zero Dark Thirty"
Best Director: Kathryn Bigelow, "Zero Dark Thirty"
Best Screenplay: Tony Kushner, "Lincoln"
Best Actress: Jessica Chastain, "Zero Dark Thirty"
Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis, "Lincoln"
Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway, "Les Miserables"
Best Supporting Actor: Tommy Lee Jones, "Lincoln"
Best Cinematography: Roger Deakins, "Skyfall"
Best Documentary: "How to Survive a Plague"

Best Animated Film: "ParaNorman"
Best Foreign Language Film: "Oslo, August 31st"
Best Editing: 
William Goldenberg & Dylan Tichenor, "Zero Dark Thirty"

Best Original Score: Jonny Greenwood, "The Master"
Best Ensemble Cast: "Moonrise Kingdom"

The BOFCA listed their "Ten Best Films of the Year," which are:

"Zero Dark Thirty"
"Beasts of the Southern Wild"
"Lincoln"
"Moonrise Kingdom"
"Django Unchained"
"Oslo, August 31st"
"Holy Motors"
"The Master"
"Argo"
"Cloud Atlas"

Given that "Zero Dark Thirty" is first, and the rest aren't in any kind of alphabetical order, I'm going to assume that's a ranked list -- which is interesting since that makes "Beasts of the Southern Wild" the organization's second favorite movie of the year, even though it didn't appear anywhere else in their awards. Expect a few more posts like this later today or early tomorrow; the Boston, Los Angeles, and New York Online Film Critics are all voting on their annual awards as we speak (or, technically, as I type and you read). You can also find earlier 2012 critics group award winners below.
