“Birdman” and “Grand Budapest Hotel” Win, But So Does “The Lego Movie” and Jenny Slate at Critics’ Choice Movie Award

While some are still focusing extensively on the movies that got snubbed at The Oscars, The Critics’ Choice Awards definitely gave honors to some of those in that are making that snubbed list.

Birdman did take Best, Actor, Best Score, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Acting Ensemble, and Best Original Screenplay and Grand Budapest Hotel took Best Comedy, Best Art Direction, and Best Costume Design as the frontrunners.

However, Jenny Slate took home the trophy for Best Actress for her performance in Obvious Child.

The Guardians of the Galaxy and The LEGO Movie also got the awards for Best Action Movie and Best Animated Movie respectively.

So, we’re glad that The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards gave some distinction to folks that otherwise would be ignored by a certain Academy.
