Boyhood hit theatres long before award season began, but that hasn't stopped Richard Linklater's baby from killing it today at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards. The film won best picture, best director for Linklater, and best supporting actress for Patricia Arquette

This is no guarantee that Boyhood will take top honors at the Academy Awards—only four NYFCC best film winners since 2000 have gone on to win the Oscar for best picture—but it sure as hell doesn't hurt. New contenders have been rolling out for months now, and The Hollywood Reporter and Indiewire still have Boyhood as the frontrunner for best picture.
