‘Baby’ for Seattle

Crix kudos for Eastwood, Foxx, Staunton

The Seattle Film Critics love a good fight. Boxing pic “Million Dollar Baby” and its helmer Clint Eastwood have been named best picture and director by the 14-member org.

Jamie Foxx won the actor award for his portrayal of Ray Charles in “Ray,” while Imelda Staunton was named best actress for “Vera Drake.”

Supporting actor nods went to “Sideways” thesps Thomas Haden Church and Virginia Madsen. The pic’s scribes, Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor, won for adapted screenplay, while original screenplay went to Charlie Kaufman for “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”

“Control Room,” an examination of the Iraq war through the news of Al Jazeera, shared the documentary award with “Touching the Void,” about two climbers’ journey through the Andes. Animated film went to “The Incredibles,” while the foreign-language prize went to “Maria Full of Grace.”

The Seattle Critics Awards also hand out a Living Treasure award for career recognition. Art director and production designer Henry Bumstead, whose work includes “Vertigo,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “Cape Fear,” “Mystic River” and, most recently, “Million Dollar Baby,” took home this year’s honor.

A special citation went to Richard Schickel and Brian Jamieson for their work in restoring 50 previously unseen minutes to Samuel Fuller’s 1980 pic “The Big Red One.”
