A gravelly-voiced Bob Dylan paid tribute to Martin Scorsese at the 17th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, performing “Blind Willie McTell.” It made perfect sense that the music legend should pay tribute to the film legend, as both have an iconic stature in cultural history. Moreover, Scorsese’s “No Direction Home” is a documentary about Dylan. The CCMA performance itself was dark and gritty, and Dylan personified the Scorsesean anti-hero on the dimly lit stage.
Scorsese was awarded with the Critics’ Choice Music + Film Award by Leonardo DiCaprio and Olivia Harrison, and his movie Hugo was nominated for 11 awards, taking home the award for Best Art Direction.
