Critical darlings Crash and Brokeback Mountain fared pretty well at tonight’s Critics’ Choice Awards, which kicked off the television awards season.
I was a bit disappointed Felicity Huffman didn’t win, but Reese was great in Walk The Line. Oh well, Huffman will get her due come Golden Globe time – they’re in separate categories.
Kind of embarassing though, how they cut off Ang Lee and Diana Ossana as they tried to give their acceptance speeches. Very happy for Phillip Seymour Hoffman, though it’s kind of hard to be happy for any winners of the Best Actor category this year because there truly are so many good performances.
Here are the winners.
