Mo’Nique Wins Supporting Actress At Critics Choice Movie Awards

Last night Monique won “Best Supporting Actress” at the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. Soon video to be posted from behind the scenes with reporters asking her why she has not shown up at certain events.

Interesting to note that “Avatar” won six prizes at Friday’s Critics Choice Movie Awards, but James Cameron’s blockbuster lost in two of the top categories, including Best Picture, to his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker.” Bigelow also won the award for Best Directing during the ceremony at the Hollywood Palladium.

Below analysis of the awards by our contributor Sean O’Connell.


By the end of this weekend, the 2009-10 Oscar race should become a little clearer. Two annual awards show which boast the power of Oscar prognostication – the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and the Golden Globes, handed out by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association – will televise their ceremonies this weekend. The BFCA goes first, airing the CCMA on Friday, Jan. 15, at 9 p.m. ET on VH1. The Globes, meanwhile, follow Sunday, Jan. 17, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

Winning either a CCMA or Globe doesn’t necessarily guarantee a film’s Oscar victory, but BFCA members (of which I am one) will tell you the group has accurately predicted the Best Picture winner 8 out of the last 10 years. So I’m going to don my Oscar cap, peer into my crystal ball, and hazard a guess at which pictures will go home happy from each event. I’m limiting my predictions to the major categories. For a full list of the nominees, visit www.bfca.organd www.goldenglobes.org.

Best Picture: “The Hurt Locker”
Best Director: Kathryn Bigelow, “The Hurt Locker”
