At age 16, the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. may still be a teenager, but Friday the org was acting all grown up. First, at the 16th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at the Hollywood Palladium, and later, at the rockin’ after-party down the block at Siren Studios, the largest film critics group in America strutted its stuff all night long.
Annette Bening gushed that “this show is so much fun — way more fun than the New York Film Critics Circle,” referencing that recent crix/creatives catfight.
Julia Ormond, whose “Temple Grandin” lost out to Steven Spielberg’s miniseries “The Pacific” as best picture made for television, glowed happily anyway and said with a laugh, “Theirs was 10 movies, ours was one. What are you going to do?”
