As we’ve said before, last night’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards was the opening act to one of our favorite times of year,
ski awards season. And on the red carpet, it was easy to spot who was new to this whole deal and who’s been strolling down carpets for decades.
It was a big night for The Artist, which won Best Director and Best Picture, and The Help, which nabbed three acting prizes. Viola Davis moved everyone to tears with her speech, in which said portraying women like her character in the film was basically why she was born. Even the stars who were ostensibly competing against the Help cast were pulling for wins by Davis and company.
“Octavia Spencer has been one of my dearest friends, and I’m rooting for her,” said Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy, who lost Best Supporting Actress to the endearing Spencer.
