Last night was the Critics Choice awards. Here in Los Angeles the red carpet started around 3pm. The awards themselves didn’t air until 8pm here in LA, so of course the results were online already. I stayed away from the internet so I could be surprised and I was.
American Hustle walked away with a number of awards including Comedy Movie, really? Yes I did like the movie but The Heat was HILARIOUS!! Also Melissa McCarthy was robbed, she is so funny, I didn’t feel that Amy Adams was laugh out loud funny.
The Butler really got robbed. That movie was so good especially the performances by Oprah and Forest Whitaker which really made the movie.
It was a fun awards show with Aisha Tyler as the host of the night and big name celebrities playing along with the little skits she was doing.
The Oscar nominations were also announced yesterday morning. A big surprise was that Oprah was not nominated at all. No surprise was that American Hustle and Gravity were nominated for 10 awards each. I am really hoping that the past two award shows aren’t a precursor for what the Oscars are going to be.
The next award show…Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday.
