'Selma' dominates Black Film Critics Circle awards

Posted by · 5:19 pm · December 23rd, 2014


Black Film Critics Circle co-president Mike Sargent accompanied the release of his group's list of 2014 movie superlatives this year with a quote expressing praise for “an incredibly diverse and progressive year for black film.” He then went on to broadly touch on the subject matter covered across that spectrum. Nevertheless, his organization's list of winners hardly reflects that diversity, I must say.

“Selma” cleaned up, winning six awards including Best Picture. Not represented were films like “Beyond the Lights,” “Top Five,” “Dear White People,” “Get On Up” or “Jimi: All Is By My Side.” Just pointing it out.

Check out the full list of winners below. And catch the rest of the season at The Circuit.
