The biggest winner of the night, David O. Russell‘s dramedy Silver Linings Playbook collected a total of four awards: Best Acting Ensemble gong as well as Best Comedy Movie trophies; Lawrence and Cooper won Best Actress and Actor awards for the comedy category. Accepting the award, Cooper said:
You’re looking at a very lucky man. I got to work with such great comedians since I started… and then I got to work in this movie…In my life dramatic situations have had a lot of comedy in them. And Jennifer Lawrence, she is something else.
The 22-year-old actress also nabbed top honor in an Action Movie – The Hunger Games. And Affleck told the Critics’ Choice audience:
I would like to thank the Academy… Just kidding, this is the one that counts!
