Boston Society of Film Critics Winners

I've just finished cleaning up the coffee cups and discarded ballots from the BSFC meeting and can share the results of the voting:
Best Picture: "No Country for Old Men"
Best Foreign Language Picture: "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly"
Best Documentary: "Crazy Love"
Best Director: Julian Schnabel ("The Diving Bell and the Butterfly")
Best Actor: Frank Langella ("Starting out in the Evening").
Best Actress: Marion Cotillard ("La vie en rose")
Best Supporting Actor: Javier Bardem ("No Country for Old Men")
Best Supporting Actress: Amy Ryan ("Gone Baby Gone")
Best Ensemble: "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead"
Best Screenplay: Brad Bird ("Ratatouille")
Besty Cinematography: Janusz Kaminski ("The Diving Bell and the Butterfly")
Best New Filmmaker: Ben Affleck ("Gone Baby Gone")

Some observations
1. After "Gone Baby Gone" won Best Newcomer and Best Supporting Actress I could sense people getting nervous that we'd be seen as boosting the hometown team, especially after last year's "The Departed" showing. But I think it still deserved at least Best Ensemble.
2. No wins for the supposedly hot contenders "Juno," "Into the Wild" or "The Kite Runner." Not that I'm complaining.
3. The meeting ended in time for the 4:15 p.m. kickoff of the Patriots-Steelers game.
