Nightcrawler earned seven San Diego Film Critics Society* awards including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Original Screenplay in a vote that took place on December 15, 2014. However, the group spread the remainder of the awards around, giving one award to each of the following films released in 2014:

Birdman
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Edge of Tomorrow
Boxtrolls
Citizenfour
Force Majeure
Gone Girl
Foxcatcher
Two Days, One Night

When it came to voting on the final award of the year – Best Film – the group overwhelmingly threw their support behind Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler. The voting wasn’t as close in the Body of Work category where Willem Dafoe narrowly edged out Tilda Swinton. The Body of Work award is given out annually to an artist who was involved in a minimum of three films during the year.
