Two nights ago, the people spoke. Last night, the critics named their victors. On Sunday, an ambiguous group of foreign press will hand out their Golden Globes while intoxicating many of your favorite stars.
We’re officially in the brunt of award season.
Last night’s Critic Choice awards didn’t surprises with too many out of nowhere wins, but it’s important to note that the show isn’t a sure fire predictor of the Golden Globes or the Academy Awards. Last year The Social Network took the Critics Choice’s top spot. But the big winner at the Oscars? The King’s Speech.
As you can tell from our “Making the Case” series, the Hollywood.com staff is quite happy with most of the winners (listed below), but what say you? Are these the best movies/performances/scripts of the year?
