Critics Choice Awards

And so it begins... Brokeback took home Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actress (Michelle Williams). As I anticipated, Philip Seymour Hoffman took the Best Actor honors for Capote. Unfortunate, because Heath Ledger has quite a year. However, he is just a wee bairn of 26 with an entire career ahead of him. Reese Witherspoon nabbed the Best Actress award for Walk The Line and Paul Giamatti took home Best Supporting Actor for Cinderella Man.

Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco were awarded the Best Writer accolade for Crash, besting authors that penned The Squid and the Whale, Good Night and Good Luck, Capote and Brokeback Mountain.

This list sparks a few random thoughts...

I just read an article in EW that Michelle Williams was on Dawson's Creek. Who knew? I missed all but 1 or 2 episodes of that show... I was still recovering from 90210. For those of you that saw Brokeback - do you feel it was deserved? She shared it with Amy Adams for her Junebug performance.

And Paul Giamatti reminds me... Has anyone seen the teaster trailer for Lady in the Water? I've read the synopsis it seems quite intriguing. I've been led down this path with Mr. Shyamalan and I've been disappointed. His redemption might be found in this one though. We shall see.
