OSCAR WATCH: Critics Choice Awards

And here we are again, back to another confused state of affairs as the Critics Choice Awards decided to go with a Best Picture-Best Director split. Of course, I did predict this to happen, but the evening had such a "Mad Max" flavor to it that for a split second, I thought it might actually take the big one. Alas, It was Spotlight that prevailed, taking Best Picture to go along with its awards for Best Ensemble and Best Original Screenplay. Elsewhere, it was one of the most predictable Critics Choice Awards ceremonies with little by way or surprises of excitement. Here's how it all went down:
