Anne Hathaway won for Best Supporting Actress in “Les Miserables” last night at the 18th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held in Santa Monica last night. With all the buzz behind, we’re pretty sure she’ll bag a Golden Globe this Sunday & then go on to win her first Oscar at the Academy Awards next month.
Anne has an Oscar nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, but it won’t be a cakewalk like everybody thinks. Other actresses nominated in the category include Amy Adams (“The Master”), Sally Field (“Lincoln”), Helen Hunt (“The Sessions”), & Jacki Weaver (“Silver Linings Playbook”).
Here’s Anne discussing her character in “Les Miserables”:
After bagging a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her leading role in Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty,” the new year is starting out beautifully for actress Jessica Chastain. Last year, she received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 2011’s “The Help,” so I hope Jessica’s getting used to all the attention!
Last night at the 18th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, as expected, Jessica Chastain was honored with the Best Actress award. Unless nine-year-old actress Quvenzhané Wallis can work miracles, I think Jessica will probably go on to win the Oscar. I feel like from a difficulty standpoint, Quvenzhané’s role in “Beasts of the Southern Wild” is more deserving of the honor, especially considering her young age! The Academy is filled with a bunch of bullshit & if they couldn’t show Gabourey Sidibe any love for her work in “Precious,” why would they change now?!
After wearing that freaky-looking, sparkly dress to last night’s People’s Choice Awards, Jennifer Lawrence turned things around beautifully. Obviously, the big news in Jennifer’s life today was learning she earned her second Oscar nomination for ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ (first was for 2010’s ‘Winter’s Bone’). That’s pretty damn impressive for a 22-year-old! Her co-star Bradley Cooper also got a nod for best actor for his role in the film, so many congrats to both!
Jennifer Lawrence didn’t do so badly at the Critics’ Choice either considering she bagged a total of two awards, one for Best Actress in an Action Movie (“The Hunger Games”) and another for Best Actress in a Comedy (“Silver Linings Playbook”). Her co-star Bradley Cooper won in the Best Actor in a Comedy, so it appears these two are killin’ it.
In an interview with USA Today, Jennifer noted that she’s looking forward to this Sunday’s Golden Globes, but it sounds like she’s most excited about being able to drink alcohol.
“I’ve thought about how much liquor I’m going to consume on Sunday. Last year, at the Globes, I couldn’t drink. I was like, oh, my God. Hopefully, it will be better this year now that I can drink.”
“I have not picked a dress yet” for Globes, she says, much less Oscars.
With that in hand, let’s just hope that whoever is choosing Jennifer dress doesn’t disappoint.
Nope, we’re not done with all of our covereage from the 18th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica last night. Nina Dobrev of CW’s The Vampire Diaries also walked the red carpet in additional to the numerous female attendees. Nina was nominated for a People’s Choice Awards this past year for Favorite Dramatic TV Actress but lost out to Ellen Pompeo. Catch new episodes from season four of CW’s The Vampire Diaries on Thursdays at 8/7/c.
“Les Miserables” star Amanda Seyfried continued her flawlessly beautiful streak on the red carpet as she opted for a very intricately designed blue dress. Major props to Amanda’s stylist doing the heavy lifting in the fashion department.
Aside from attending countless award shows this month, January is also when Amanda’s anxiously awaited biopic “Lovelace“ will make its official premiere at the annual Sundance Film Festival (January 22). It’ll be interesting to see what kind of response the film gets from critics & audiences.
Amanda is also one of the stars of “The Big Wedding,” which is directed by Justin Zackham (wrote the worldwide hit “The Bucket List”). The film is a remake of the original 2006 French film “Mon frère se marie” and stars cast including Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, among others. According to the film’s Wiki, “The Big Wedding centers around Don (De Niro) and Ellie (Keaton), a long divorced couple being forced to pretend that they are still happily married at their son’s wedding. Among all of their family and friends, the hoax snowballs into a poignant and raucously funny story about the ties that bind.” Look for the film in theaters later this spring on April 26.
Emily Blunt was definitely one of the best dressed & styled ladies in attendance. Damn you, John Krasinski! She was nominated in the Best Actress in an Action Movie category for her work in “Looper,” one of the best (and confusing) flicks of 2012. The film won in the Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie category. If you have yet to watch it, definitely check it out on Blu-ray.

“Shameless” star Emmy Rossum was also on hand at last night’s 18th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. As expected, Emmy looked ultra-cute & sexy. Even though she goes topless in nearly every episode of her hit Showtime series, she still manages to somehow continue looking really innocent.
Don’t know how many of you guys follow “Shameless,” but I’m personally a huge fan. Sadly, I’m only on episode five of the second season, so I gotta stay at home one of these weekends & just watch the rest of the season. I’ll be honest, I don’t think I’ve watched a single, disappointing episode, so major props to Emmy, as well as the show’s cast & crew for all their hard work.
I guess one of the perks of being extremely sexy is that you get invited to star-studded Hollywood award shows even though you or any of your projects aren’t nominated for an award. No biggie b/c Jaime King absolutely killed it in the sex-appeal & beauty department. The 33-year-old actress definitely needs to land bigger gigs and you’d think she’d have very little trouble considering her hubby Kyle Newman is a producer, director, writer, & editor.
Marion Cotillard, Leslie Mann, Eva Longoria, Naomi Watts, & Amy Adams
As the award season gets into full swing, last night’s star-studded event was the 18th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport. We’ll cover most of the big-shots who walked the red carpet, so look for those photos soon.
The big winners will definitely send mix signals b/c certain Oscar snubs turned out to take the top honors. Best Picture went to Ben Affleck’s “Argo” & the actor-turned-director also scored the award for Best Director. While “Argo” received a Best Picture nod by the Oscars, Ben Affleck didn’t get any love in the director category. Seems like somebody didn’t kiss the right asses!
