"Argo" F...yourself! Ben Affleck's "Argo" was the big winner at the 18th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards. The film won Best Picture with Affleck, infamously snubbed by the Academy, took home the Best Director award. I say...Yay!
Voted by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, of which I'm a proud member, the Critics' Choice Movie Awards have been regarded as a better Oscar predictor than the Golden Globes. Heck, we even give talented directors their well-deserved praise! Ha!
Affleck received the loudest standing ovation after winning the Best Director award for "Argo." Also receiving standing ovation was Daniel Day-Lewis for his Best Actor win for "Lincoln." Jessica Chastain won Best Actress for "Zero Dark Thirty," while Philip Seymour Hoffman took home the Best Supporting Actor trophy for "The Master" and Anne Hathaway (another hurray!) received the Best Supporting Actress Award for "Les Miserables."
"Lincoln," which received a record-breaking 13 nominations, »
