RED CARPET MONITOR: “Zero” best film, “Perks” co-star Miller wins Supporting Actor from BSFC

The Boston Society of Film Critics announced their year end winners list on Sunday

Most prominent among all names today were not one but TWO names from “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” –  longtime PNR fave Ezra Miller took top honors from the BSFC for Best Supporting Actor, while co-star Emma Watson took the runner up slot in the Supporting Actress category. Neither have been considered serious candidates for the Golden Globes or Oscar by the Oscar pundits; now, with Boston’s track record showing they are usually a decent barometer of potential bigger award nominees, ’tis time for the pundits to rethink their candidates lists.
