Critics Choice and Golden Globes

posted by Nell Minow

I’m back from Los Angeles and an amazing night of glamour and excitement at the Critics Choice Awards.  All the star were there — from the youngest-ever Best Actress Oscar Nominee,
Quvenzhané Wallis to Daniel Day-Lewis, Stephen Spielberg, and Sally Field from “Lincoln” and Jessica Chastain, Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence, and Bradley Cooper.  The high points for me were Wallis breathlessly reading her acceptance speech for best performance by an actor under age 25 from her pink-covered iPhone, Rebel Wilson’s presentation of a special comedy award to Judd Apatow (she pretended that he had written her speech) and Ben Affleck’s charming acceptance of his best director award for “Argo,” coming just hours after his inexplicable snub by the Oscars.  “I’d like to thank the members of the Academy,” he began, and brought the house down.  And I loved Anne Hathaway, accepting her best supporting actress award for “Les Miserables,” teasing us for misspelling her name on the screen.

I know I am biased, but for me the critics awards are the most meaningful because we see everything all year long, not just the discs that are circulated at awards time.  It was a blast and I’m very proud of our choices.

And the Golden Globes!  It’s the most fun to watch because they give out so many awards and because everyone just relaxes and enjoys the party.  Tina Fey and Amy Poehler should not just host everything from now on — they should run everything from now on.  They were perfect!  I loved Jodie Foster’s heartfelt speech accepting her lifetime achievement award.
