Argo Wins Best Picture at Critics' Choice Awards
The 18th annual Critics’ Choice Awards aired last night on the CW.
Ben Affleck won Best Director and Argo won Best Picture. Even better, Affleck started his acceptance speech by thanking the academy, then saying, “I’m kidding, this is the one that counts.”
Another win included Quvenzhane Wallis for Best Young Actor/Actress for her role in Beasts of the Southern Wild. She proceeded to take out a list on her pink iPhone and “thank God” for all of her blessings and “the film critics for this award."
Other winners included Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence for Best Actress and Best Actress in a comedy, respectively. Although Lincoln had a whopping 13 nominations, the film only took home two awards: Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis and Best Adapted Screenplay for Tony Kushner. Quentin Tarantino won Best Original Screenplay for Django Unchained.
