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.”

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.
We’re all psyched to hear Nick Jonas and The Administration performing some of our favorite songs throughout tonight’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards (who knew we’d get to hear our favorite song from when we were a kid, “Abracadabra” playing us to commercial?).
Honestly though, we were more excited that we got to hear some of the band’s original music during the red carpet pre-show, and we have the footage of them playing their hit “Who I Am” right here so we can watch it over…and over…and over. We have a feeling some of you might want to do the same.
The media is going gaga over Sunday’s Golden Globes, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves, people. Do the Globes have Nick Jonas & The Administration as its house band? Do the Globes have Adam Lambert and Sarah Silverman presenting an award together (spoiler: expect something memorable)? Are John Krasinski, Amy Poehler and Death Cab for Cutie paying tribute to John Hughes at the Golden Globes? True, the Globes have funnyman Ricky Gervais as its host, but is he as easy on the eyes as funny girl and CCMA host Kristin Chenoweth? Of course not!

If there’s one thing that will set tonight’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards apart from other award shows, it’s the fact that no one else has Nick Jonas and The Administration performing as a house band. Nick spoke to MTV about his latest gig, saying “There’s a lot of songs that I have to learn still, but I’m looking forward to it. It’s an honor to be a part of that show, and knowing that I’m going to be playing it with the band is comforting, considering they are very experienced and they’ve got a pretty good grip on what they’re doing.”
So what can we expect to hear on the show? Sounds like a little of everything! “[The producers of the show and I] work together on this one to come up with a list of songs that I feel comfortable with and that they were comfortable with as well,” Jonas said. “It’s a big list, but it should be good to see it all come together.” The show will also feature tons of hilarious actors and comedians, so hopefully someone in The Administration has perfected their rim-shot.

Comedian, plus-size model and Critics’ Choice-nominated actress Mo’Nique blew audiences away with her performance in Precious as a monstrously abusive single mother. Long before Mo’ got major props for her acting chops, she was strutting her stuff in outrageous outfits with beaming confidence. We love her brave fashion choices – and just as all risks, some paid off while others flopped. Here are 25 of the most daring ensembles to ever grace the red carpet.
