As the 15th Annual Critic’s Choice Movie Awards handed out statues to many acclaimed actors and directors on Friday night in Hollywood, it was Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock who stole the show with a tie for Best Actress.
Sandra, taking home the prize for her role in the Blind Side, along with fellow actress Meryl for Julie and Julia, decided to kiss it out on stage after both winning the acclaimed award.
Sandra joked during her acceptance speech, “Bullshit!” but the 45-year-old actress was proud to stand on stage with Meryl.
“This is an honor. It is a great honor to be in the company of the extraordinary women I was so lucky to be nominated with, because this one here inspired me to do everything better,” Sandra spoke highly of the iconic actress.
And although the Best Actress category seemed to throw everyone for a loop, many other awards were passed out throughout the evening with Jeff Bridges receiving the honor of Best Actor for Crazy Heart.
While Best Picture went to Kathryn Bigelow for her thrilling work on the Hurt Locker, Christopher Waltz raked in a nod for Best Supporting Actor in Inglorious Basterds starring Brad Pitt and Mo’nique walked away with Best Supporting Actress for Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.
But what kind of night would it have been without a shout out to James Cameron’s 3-Dimensional hit Avatar? The sci-fi flick took home award for more than one category including Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Editing, and Best Action movie… just to name a few.
