For many years, I was a voting member of the Las Vegas Film Critics Society. Since I no longer contribute to any media outlets in Nevada, I have stopped voting with the group, but I still feel a kinship with the members, many of whom are personal friends. Because of that — and because the Las Vegas Critics always make interesting picks — I think its important for me to report on their 2014 Sierra Award winners.
This year, “Birdman” was the big movie, taking the group’s best picture award and ranking No. 1 on its annual top 10.
Following is the full list of winners.
