Awards: Broadcast Film Critics

posted by Nell Minow

The Critics Choice Award broadcast was great fun tonight with a brilliantly edited tribute to Martin Scorsese, who received a special award for his treatment of music in his movies.  Viola Davis, in my opinion the finest actor who isn’t Meryl Streep, brought me to tears with her acceptance speech for the Best Actress award she received for “The Help.”  Her Entertainment Weekly cover co-star George Clooney won Best Actor for “The Descendents.”  “The Artist” won Best Picture and Director, and all of these are now front runners for the upcoming Golden Globes, SAG awards, and the Oscars.  Stay tuned!
