Critics Choice Awards 2013 Winners.

Argo was crowned as the best picture of 2012 at the Critics Choice Awards today. Director Ben Affleck also won for the same movie. I don't think its a surprise for me, Lincoln was never going to win either of these awards here while Zero Dark Thirty was considered for it but in the end, Argo was playing quite well with the critics before the whole idiotic controversy aroused. I am actually happy that they went with Argo but it would have been great if Zero Dark Thirty was given both these prizes since it deserved it more than any other movie. The big winners however was Silver Linings Playbook that got best ensemble, comedy movie, comedy actor and comedy actress. As well as Lincoln which got lead actor, adapted screenplay and score. Skyfall too got three awards, for action movie, action actor and original song. Zero Dark Thirty were given two very deserving awards, editing and more importantly, best actress for Jessica Chastain which i predicted would happen.
