Party reaches critical mass

Crix fete Jackson, Johansson, Coppola

Weekend Golden Globes merrymaking spilled over into Monday, when the L.A. Film Critics Assn. convened to dispense its kudos at a more relaxed affair.

Peter Jackson ditched Sunday night’s tux for sportier garb at the kudofest, where the Kiwi was honored for his directing wizardry on the last installment in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. Jackson, who thanked Harvey Weinstein in his Globes acceptance speech, on this occasion talked about his struggle to find a studio willing to back the ambitious project he envisioned.

Scarlett Johansson picked up the rarely dispensed new generation award from the org at the St. Regis Hotel, while Sofia Coppola received her due for “Lost in Translation.” Naomi Watts also turned out to receive her prize for “21 Grams” the eve before she bagged an Oscar nomination for her work in the pic.
