I’m torn between the fact that LA has seemed to go out of its way in the last few years not to duplicate NY’s best picture choice, and the fact that Boyhood feels more in the Hurt Locker/Social Network class than any of the intervening films.

[Julianne Moore (Still Alice)]
Sup. Actor: Edward Norton (Birdman)
[J.K. Simmons (Whiplash)]
Sup. Actress: Rene Russo (Nightcrawler)
[Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year))]
…though classic LA would be Agata Kulesza (Ida)
Director: Alejandro G. Innaritu (Birdman)
[Richard Linklater (Boyhood)]
Screenplay: Inherent Vice
[The Grand Budapest Hotel]
Cinematography: Robert Elswit (Inherent Vice & Nightcrawler)
