The 17th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards – Winners

It’s safe to say by this point that I am completely convinced The Artist will win the Best Picture accolade at the Oscars. I also think it deserves to. Its four wins here, including Best Picture and Director, help cement its position as firm favourite, with the only potential upset seeming to come from The Descendants or Scorsese taking Best Director. But I doubt it.

Viola Davis got her first major award of the season for her stunning work in The Help, which was also rewarded with two further wins (though I can still see Chastain snatching it from Spencer). It’s still a little hard to call Drive an ‘action’ film, but I’ll take any and all prizes that come its way, with The Muppets’ win also thoroughly deserved. The only huge surprise is in the Best Documentary category – although I’m not particularly happy with the tie for Cinematography, which should be The Tree Of Life or nothing.
