As the road to The Oscars continues we keep a close watch on what the critics have to say, and after last night’s much anticipated 18th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, we think there were a few good surprises.  Hollywood actor and director Ben Affleck who stole the award from Steven Spielberg’s much acclaimed, Lincoln. And the new Hollywood starlet Jennifer Lawrence was generously awarded for Best Actress in an Action movie and Best Actress in a Comedy. She has much to be proud of in her Hollywood career. With the Golden Globes and Oscars just around the corner, we are anxious to see who will be acknowledged for their achievement in Hollywood, and as fans of them all, we wish everyone luck and will see you on the red carpet.
