The Critics Choice Awards just wrapped up, and it looks like The Artist and The Help have come away the big winners of the evening.The Artist, long considered the Oscar film to beat, ended the night with 4 wins, including Best Picture and Best Director for Michael Hazanavicius.
The Help held it down in the acting categories, taking home 3 wins: Best Actress for Viola Davis, Best Supporting Actress for Octavia Spencer, and Best Ensemble Cast.
Other winners include George Clooney for his performance in The Descendants, gay Captain Von Trap/Christopher Plummer for his performance in Beginners, Best Original Screenplay for Woody Allen’s work in Midnight In Paris, and Best Adapted Screenplay for crossword champs Aaron Sorkin, Steven Zaillian, and Stan Chervin for Moneyball.
If this is any indication of what the star-heavy, substance-light winners list at the Golden Globes will look like this Sunday, it sounds like Emma Stone has one more thing to be thankful for this year.
