Critic’s Choice Awards 2010

January 16, 2010

This is the first major awards show that will start the ball rolling towards the Academy Awards.  This year’s race is highly competitive as there are many possibilities that may play out here.  Without a clear favorite, any film that takes the big prize can generate buzz and momentum that can help its Academy Award chances.  It will be our first glimpse of what can happen!”
