AWARDS: Boyhood wins best feature, director, actress and editing.
The Los Angeles Film Critics Association lavished most of its awards on Boyhood, which earned best feature and three other prizes, and The Grand Budapest Hotel, which took best screenplay for Wes Anderson and best production design for Adam Stockhausen.
Richard Linklater — in London to collect Boyhood’s best international independent award at the BIFAs — prevailed in the directing category, while Patricia Arquette was named best actress and Sanda Adair picked up best editing honours.
Ida was named best foreign-language film, Citizenfour best documentary/nonfiction film and The LEGO Movie best animation.
