Last night’s 20th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards was an extension, for some, of their Oscar nomination celebrations from the morning. For others—particularly contenders who were snubbed—it was a sobering affair. But the star wattage was there, likely helped by the fact that many potential Oscar nominees alight in Los Angeles at this time. Deadline Awards Columnist Pete Hammond wrote in his recap of the event that industry well-wishers descended upon Jennifer Aniston’s table to wish her well on her Oscar-ignored performance in Cake. Ditto for Angelina Jolie, whose Unbroken only nabbed crafts nominations and none for her as director. TV personality Michael Strahan hosted and special tributes were awarded to Kevin Costner (Lifetime Achievement Award), Ron Howard (Louis XIII Critics’ Genius Award) and Jessica Chastain (the inaugural Critics’ Choice MVP Award).
