article image'Boyhood' takes top prize at Critics' Choice Movie Awards

By Tim O'Brien     Jan 15, 2015 in Entertainment
UPDATE: "Boyhood" took home Best Picture as the Broadcast Film Critics handed out their awards tonight in Hollywood. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" took home Best Comedy.
Michael Keaton won two acting awards in what is always an odd night for awarding films. Keaton won for comedy and drama actor, but his film did lose out. Director went to Richard Linklater for "Boyhood."
EARLIER: The Oscar nominations are still in the news cycle yet the critics are getting in the way tonight. The Critics' Choice Movie Awards will be handed out live on A&E at 8 p.m. CT/9 p.m. ET, with Michael Strahan as host.
In an earlier story on Digital Journal, it showed that "Birdman" had plenty of love and that "The Grand Budapest Hotel" was a surprise. Here was that lead: While "Birdman" leads the way for the Critics' Choice Movie Awards with 13 nominations, it is "The Grand Budapest Hotel" that surprises with 11 nods. For that story, head here.
With the Oscar nominations, it shows that the critics were on to something. However, there are many differences. Plus, they have genre categories, which allow for several "best" films.
Strahan noted, in an earlier release, why he likes this award. “‘The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards’ show paves the way for the upcoming awards season, and the best part is that the winners are selected by the very people who make a living watching and reviewing films. It doesn't get much more competitive than that.” Well, that is other than the fact that he is the host.
Special awards will be presented tonight. Kevin Costner, Ron Howard and Jessica Chastain will each receive special honors at the ceremony. Costner gets the Lifetime Achievement Award. The LOUIS XIII Critics’ Choice Genius Award will be presented to Ron Howard. Jessica Chastain will receive the inaugural ‘Critics’ Choice MVP Award.
Winner in bold as the night progresses.
