Critics’ Choice: Slumdog Scoops Up 5 Awards

The 14th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, often a harbinger for the Oscars, gave Danny Boyle‘s Slumdog Millionaire best picture, best director, best writer, best composer and best young actor. Sean Penn (Milk) won best actor and best actress was divided between Meryl Streep (Doubt) and Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married).

While Hathaway’s acceptance speech was poignant, the most wringing moment of the night (as evidenced by Angelina Jolie‘s teary eyes) came when Heath Ledger won a posthumous best supporting actor award for his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight.

See the full winners list at the 2009 Critics’ Choice Awards website, and check out red carpet photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Marisa Tomei, Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Kate Beckinsale and many others.
