"The Departed" collected most honors at the event, winning four that included Best Picture of 2006.
Honoring those that "offer outstanding film programming", the Boston Society of Film Critics proudly announced the recipients of its BSFC Awards for year 2006 on Sunday night, December 10.
Though staying with the majority on who the best actor and actress of 2006 are by naming Forest Whitaker of "The Last King of Scotland" and Helen Mirren of "The Queen" in those respective categories, the group really made different selections from other award events this time as it bestowed most honors to "The Departed" instead.
Altogether, the mob saga garnered four prizes in categories of Best Picture, Best Director for Martin Scorsese, Best Supporting Actor for Mark Wahlberg, and Best Screenplay for William Monahan.
Other surprising picks were "Half Nelson"'s Shareeka Epps for Best Supporting Actress and its director Ryan Fleck for the recipient of David Brudnoy New Filmmaker Award. Meanwhile, Guillermo del Toro's "Pan's Labyrinth" was cited Best Foreign Language Feature with "Shut Up & Sing" and "Deliver Us from Evil" making a tie as Best Documentary Feature.
