Right on the heels of the Oscar nominations coming out early in the morning for the West Coast, the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards honored films, actors, and other categories Thursday evening in Santa Monica.

The CW TV network presented yet another unique awards show much like the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, and Oscars combined for this award season.

Critics’ Choice honors dramatic and comedy categories like the Golden Globes, the craft categories much like the Oscars, and an acting ensemble just like the SAG Awards. Another twist that’s included is an action movie category, and one for best young actor/actress.

Gravity” swept the night by winning a historic seven times in a variety of categories. During Sandra Bullock’s acceptance speech for winning best actress in an action movie, as Dr. Ryan Stone, she said, "I'd like to thank Jackie Chan, Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme for teaching me everything I know." Then there was silence due to profanity, “I'm an action star."

12 Years a Slave” has solidified itself as a strong Oscar contender by winning best picture. Lupita Nyong’o won for best supporting actress, and John Ridley for best adapted screenplay.

“American Hustle” continues its roll coming in second with four wins that included best comedy picture, Amy Adams for best comedy actress, best acting ensemble, and best makeup.
