    Boyhood is ruling this award season. The Richard Linklater's coming-of-age film, 'Boyhood', continued its winning haul by bagging top honours at the London Critics' Circle Awards, winning some of the biggest categories.

    Boyhood won best drama, best director and best supporting actress trophies. The film, which took 12 years to complete, already won best drama, best director for Linklater and best supporting actress for Patricia Arquette at the Golden Globes a week ago.

    The movie also got nominated in six categories at the upcoming Oscars. Linklater paid tribute to the critics in his acceptance speech at the award show, saying he would have never sensed any friction in the relationship between reviewers and filmmakers, reported the Guardian.

    "I divide people into two camps. Everybody who loves movies, and everybody else," he said, while accepting his director of the year award. Michael Keaton bagged the actor of the year award for his performance as a faded Hollywood actor in dark-comedy 'Birdman', while Julianne Moore was declared actress of the year for her role of a professor suffering from Alzheimer's disease in 'Still Alice'.
