Choice cuts from B’cast crix

Feting hits and a few misses

WHAT: The 11th annual Broadcast Film Critics Assn.’s Critics’ Choice awards.

BFCA doled out 21 nods in all on Monday night, including the Freedom Award to George Clooney for “Good Night, and Good Luck” and an achievements in performing arts prize to “King Kong” for visual effects.

WHERE: The Santa Monica Civic Auditorium

IN MEMORIAM: Standout moment of the evening was not “Brokeback Mountain’s” winning trifecta (best pic, director and supporting actress) but the “In Memory of” sequence, which was anything but usual.

Instead of paying homage to lost lives, kudocast, which aired on the WB, opted to lighten the mood with a tribute to the year’s biggest stinkers. Highlights included shout-outs to “Stealth” — “laser bomb guided”– and “Elektra” — “At least she (that is, Jennifer Garner) got a baby out of it.”
