Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep may have kissed at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards (they tied for Best Actress, natch), but it’s about to get nasty. Both are leaving the Golden Globes with a statue in hand – Sandy for Best Actress in a Drama, Meryl for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical – which can only mean one thing – they’re the two top contenders for the Best Actress Academy Award. Gulp.
We caught the gal pals in the press room at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, and they were buddy-buddying it up big time. But Sandy has yet to snag an Oscar nom, and Meryl hasn’t won since 1982, for Sophie’s Choice. Think these two classy ladies can remain civil, or will the race to the Oscars get nasty?
Sure, the women looked gorgeous in their Golden Globes gowns, but it was the guys who stole our hearts. After all, nothing says sexy like a rain-soaked tuxedo and a thick head of slicked-back hair. And they showed their manners too – did you see how many of the fellas politely held umbrellas for their lovely ladies on the red carpet? Now that’s sexy. [Photos: GettyImages]

Julianne Moore stunned in red at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, but showed up at the Golden Globes red carpet tonight looking like she grabbed the nearest Hefty bag and spiced it up with some electric tape around the top. And that seam..ugh, that seam! It gives her entire body a serious case of camel toe. We once saw the actress at our local pharmacy in cargo pants and a hoodie and we were still wowed, so it takes a lot to make this beauty look busted. We’re already looking forward to some fashion redemption at the Oscars red carpet. It can only get better from here, Jules! [Photos: GettyImages]
Critics’ Choice Movies Awards Best Actress winner Meryl Streep has two daughters who are pursuing acting careers of their own. We asked the stunning star what kind of advice she’s offered them, and it turns out they aren’t all that interested in what their Oscar-winning mama has to say. “They don’t ask me for advice, they give me advice,” reveals the Julie and Julia star. “‘Don’t wear that,’ stuff like that. But I’ve told them, don’t do anything you don’t want to do, which is good advice for anybody in any profession.”
“Actors just have this,” she says, pointing at her body, “it’s all they have. You’re very vulnerable, as an actor. And tough stuff comes your way. I hope they hold on to their love of it. God knows I encouraged them to enter the sciences, or anything else, But they love it, they’re wonderful and both my daughters who are being actresses now are very talented and very different from each other. ”
Meryl, we’ll take your advice any day. Adopt us, please? And while you’re at it, can you teach us how to make our skin glow like yours?
We’ve been a fan of Ed Helms since we first saw him do improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in NYC back in the day, and every lady we know holds a serious torch for the bespectacled funny guy. He’s handsome, charming, and a banjo-playing machine – the complete package, obvs. So when we caught up with Ed in the press room at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, we had to ask him what he thought about his heartthrob status. Turns out, all the lady attention makes him a wee bit tongue-tied.
“Really?” He asked incredulously, when we mentioned all our swooning gal pals. “I want all of their numbers.”
But then we, uh, made the mistake of calling Ed an “alternative heartthrob” (what can we say, we were nervous – it came out wrong!) and things got a little awkward. “I’ll try not to be insulted by the term ‘alternative heartthrob,’” he teased, adding that the lady admiration, “feels alternatively good.”
Whenever you want those numbers, let us know Ed! [Photo: GettyImages]
Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock did more than share a best actress award at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards — they shared a little tongue, too! In the annals of awards show make-outs (Brit and Madge at the VMA’s in ’03, Halle Berry and Jamie Foxx at last year’s Spike Awards and Angelina Jolie and her very own brother at the 2000 Oscars), this kiss wasn’t the hottest or the longest. But that’s only because Meryl didn’t give in to Sandra’s balls-out, open-mouthed advance. See the action below.
There were a lot of hot looks at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and it was no easy task narrowing down the best of the best. Still, we managed to wade through all of sartorial options that Hollywood presented us and we narrowed it down to our ten favorites.
Anna Kendrick‘s long black dress had a beautiful silhouette, but what really wowed us was the elegant back detail and frilly bottom. We love her polished ponytail too, which gave the look a fun, youthful touch.
We love the detailing along Mo’nique‘s neckline, but her other accessory (that would be a Best Supporting Actress statue for Precious) is pretty stunning too. Her look is polished and that dress fits her like a glove. This is one of the more understated outfits Mo’nique has worn on the red carpet, and we love it.
Top eight looks after the jump!
When Sarah Silverman and Adam Lambert were paired up to present the award for best comedy at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, we knew that anything could happen. After all, last time Glambert appeared on live television, people’s worlds were shattered and little children would never be the same.
The moment the pair took the stage, parents should have known to divert their childrens’ attention, but instead of Adam being the corrupting influence, it was all Sarah. We’ll break it down for you: Sarah Silverman really loves d*ck and doesn’t care who knows it. We mean she reaaaally loves it, and reaaaally doesn’t care who knows.
So despite Sandra Bullock‘s best efforts to “earmuff” the little kid sitting next her, he knows. And Bradley Cooper knows. And The entire cast of The Hurt Locker totally knows. And Adam? Well, he’s happy the heat’s off him for once, but he knows and totally agrees with her.
The Hurt Locker might not have been the biggest draw at the box office, but it earned awards for best picture and best director at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards tonight. The best picture winner of the Critics’ Choice often becomes the Oscar winner too. If Kathryn Bigelow‘s win for director is a sign of her Oscar chances, Bigelow would be the first woman to ever take home the trophy — and only the fourth woman to ever be nominated. Avatar, which won best action movie, is directed by James Cameron, who is Bigelow’s ex-husband.
Jeff Bridges won his first major film award for Crazy Heart, almost forty years after his breakthrough performance in The Last Picture Show.
This is the second year in a row Meryl Streep has had to share the award for best actress from the Critics’ Choice, this time with Sandra Bullock and last time with Rachel Getting Married’s Anne Hathaway. Streep won for Doubt last year. Daniel Day-Lewis (Gangs Of New York) and Jack Nicholson (About Schmidt) split best actor in 2002, and Amy Adams (Junebug) and Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain) split best supporting actress in 2005. These critics can’t make up their minds!
Up is the eighth Pixar film to win best animated feature — and they’re four for four since Cars in 2006.
