The Critics Choice Movie Awards started dumping awards outside the theater before most of us tuned in, an hour before the broadcast officially began. Among the honors swept under the red carpet was a significant tie.
Best Cinematography (tie):
- Emmanuel Lubezki , The Tree of Life
- Janusz Kaminski, War Horse
That combination might have made for one of the more exciting moments in a ceremony, but instead we got to see 5 minutes of this disrespectful crap.
Other pre-show throwaway awards:
- Best Art Direction: Dante Ferretti, Hugo
- Best Editing: Kirk Baxter and Angus Wall, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
But who really cares about those, right? Some hack at VH1 decided movie-lovers aren’t interested in those outstanding achievements, and unless we hear otherwise from the Broadcast Film Critics we can assume they agree.
