19th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards


The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) announced the winners of 19th Critics’ Choice Awards on January 16th, 2013 with giving away the top prize to to 12 Years a Slavedirected and co-produced by Steve McQueen whereas Best Director award went to Alfonso Cuarón for Gravity. Gravity was the biggest winner of the night with winning 7 awards in total, followed by American Hustle which won 4 awards and 12 Years a Slave which won 3 awards.

This is getting much clearer now that the same pattern would be seen at the Oscars, i.e. Best Picture would be won by 12 Years a Slave whereas Alfonso Cuarón would win the Best Director award. But anything could happen and it can also be surprising like anything. Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett and Jared Leto keep on winning the awards and it’s highly likely that all of them will win the Oscars on March 2nd.

Last year, 10 BFCA winners won the Oscars (you can view the previous year’s winners here: 18th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards) and it’s probably going to same the similar number this year. Well, hopefully.
