began what could very well be a six-week awards run tonight, picking up five Critics’ Choice awards from the Broadcast Film Critics Association, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay. The only other films to score multiple prizes were The Dark Knight, which won Best Supporting Actor for Heath Ledger and Best Action Movie, and Milk, which was recognized for Best Actor for Sean Penn and Best Ensemble. Meanwhile, one of the two films that went into the night with the most nominations, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, went home empty-handed. The night’s most interesting outcome was in the Best Actress category, which ended up as a tie between Doubt’s Meryl Streep and Rachel Getting Married’s Anne Hathaway. Add Revolutionary Road’s Kate Winslet—who won Best Supporting Actress for The Reader but was left off the BFCA Best Actress list—to the mix, and we’ve got a great three-way race for the Oscar.
