* Per Boston Society of Film Critics By-Laws, if the winner for Best Picture is a Non-English Language film, then the final vote is for Best English Language Film. The last instance of this was in 1985, where Akira Kurosawa’s Ran won Best Picture, and Best English Language Film was awarded to John Huston’s Prizzi’s Honor.
