Argo, Silver Linings Playbook and Skyfall win big at Critic Choice Movie Awards

After the craziness of the Oscar nominations yesterday, there will have been many stars either celebrating (from getting a nod) or drowning their sorrows (after being snubbed) during last night’s Critic Choice Movie Awards.

Though the awards only matter to the critics, they certainly cheered Ben Affleck up as the actor-turned-director bagged the Best Director award despite his shock snub from the same category by the academy. His film Argo also won the Best Picture prize ahead of the likes of Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty in what was an unusual ceremony which saw no ‘dominant’ winner.

While Argo had to settle for those two key awards, Lincoln secured wins in Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Score for veteran composer John Williams. Silver Linings ended up finishing with the most awards securing four victories for Best Comedy, Best Ensemble, Best Actor in a Comedy (Bradley Cooper) and Best Actress in a Comedy (Jennifer Lawrence). Lawrence herself, also won Best Female Action Star for her lead performance in The Hunger Games though she missed out on the crucial Best Actress award losing out to Jessica Chastain for ZD30.

Philip Seymour Hoffman nabbed a crucial win in Best Supporting Actor for The Master while Anne Hathaway secured the only win for Les Miserables in the Best Supporting Actress category. Nine-year old Quvenzhane Wallis (who became the youngest person to be nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars) won the Best Young Actor/Actress award while Quentin Tarantino was a surprise winner in the Best Original Screenplay category for his violent western Django Unchained.

Skyfall followed on from its impressive showing at BAFTA and the Oscars claiming three wins for Best Action Film, Best Actor in an Action Film (Daniel Craig) and Best Song for Adele’s rendition of ‘Skyfall’.

Other key winners included Life of Pi (Cinematography, Visual Effects), Anna Karenina (Art Direction, Costume Design), Cloud Atlas (Makeup), Wreck-It-Ralph (Animated Feature), Amour (Foreign Language) and Looper (Sci-fi/Horror Film).
