OSCAR WATCH: Critics Choice Awards

Well, the Critics Choice Movie Awards certainly felt anti-climatic after the rush of the Oscar nominations this morning. The awards schedule is really strange this year, so it's too early to know if these winners will sweep through the awards circuit. Jennifer Lawrence certainly had a good night, winning Best Comedy Actress, Best Action Actress and was part of the win for Best Ensemble. Argo won Best Picture(pictured above) and Best Director but nothing else. I doubt that will have much effect on the race, especially since Ben Affleck can't build any Best Director buzz with this. I guess we have to wait for the Golden Globes to see if anyone's position is cemented. As for now, the race is still wide open! This year I correctly predicted 17 out of 28 categories. Here's the full list of winners:
