Just 24 hours after the People's Choice Awards concluded, it was the media's turn to decide who would walk away with hardware at the 2013 Critics' Choice Movie Awards. One celebrity fully redeemed himself after being snubbed by the Academy earlier that day, while the winners in several categories could be a sign of what will play out at the Oscars.
After being left out of the Academy Award nominations for Best Director, Ben Affleck saw Argo win in the Best Film and Best Director categories. "I would like to thank the Academy... just kidding, this is the one that counts!" said Ben.
Daniel Day-Lewis, a favorite to win Best Actor at the Oscars for his role in Lincoln, helped fan those flames by winning Best Actor at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards. But while the film leads the Oscar nomination tally with 12 in total, it also led here with 13 nominations and only walked away with three wins, leading many to believe that Lincoln may not entirely clean up next month.
While much of the Oscar buzz behind Zero Dark Thirty has quieted down thanks to Kathryn Bigelow's Best Director snub, Jessica Chastain's win in the Best Actress category means the movie could repeat that triumph at the Oscars next month. The film is up for five Academy Awards.
And in a true sign that we're all getting old, nine-year-old Beasts of the Southern Wild star Quvenzhané Wallis read her acceptance speech for Best Young Actor/Actress off her iPhone. Is this something we should just get used to seeing in the future?
