‘Argo’ and ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ Win Big at 2013 Critics’ Choice Awards

Hey, Ben Affleck — who needs an Oscar nomination when you’ve got a Critics’ Choice Award, right?

He may have been snubbed by the Academy this morning, but “Argo” director Ben Affleck has emerged the big winner of this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards as he beat out such filmmaking veterans as Ang Lee, David O. Russell and Steven Spielberg in taking home Best Director.

“Argo” was the big toast across the board this evening as the CIA thriller won Best Picture, beating out such heavyweights as “Lincoln” and “Zero Dark Thirty.”

“Silver Linings Playbook,” which earned eight Oscar nominations this morning (including one in each acting category), emerged as another big winner at the Critics’ Choice Awards, taking home Best Acting Ensemble, Best Comedy, Best Actor in a Comedy (Bradley Cooper) and Best Actress in a Comedy (Jennifer Lawrence). Lawrence also took home Best Actress in an Action Movie for “The Hunger Games.”

Meanwhile, Daniel Day-Lewis won Best Actor for “Lincoln” and Jessica Chastain won Best Actress for “Zero Dark Thirty,” two wins that probably foreshadow the Oscar wins in their respective categories. Ditto Anne Hathaway’s win for Best Supporting Actress in “Les Miserables” and Adele’s win for Best Song for her still-haunting “Skyfall” single.

Finally, many congratulations are due to Quvenzhané Wallis, who won Best Young Actor/ Actress for her astonishing performance in “Beasts of the Southern Wild.” The nine-year-old star also made history today by becoming the youngest-ever Oscar nominee for Best Actress.
