Sandra Bullock, Matthew McConaughey win Critics’ Choice Awards
And the accolades keep coming: Just hours after they received 2014 Academy Award nominations, Matthew McConaughey and Sandra Bullock won Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.
The Broadcast Film Critics Association named McConaughey best actor for “Dallas Buyers Club” at its awards ceremony Thursday. Bullock won for best actress in an action movie for Alfonso Cuarón’s space thriller “Gravity.”
The pair are both nominated for the Oscars’ top acting awards. McConaughey won the best actor Golden Globe on Sunday for his “Dallas Buyers Club” performance. Bullock was nominated for the best actress Golden Globe, but she lost to “Blue Jasmine” star Cate Blanchett, who also took the overall best actress honors at the Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday night.
Nominated actors and films on Austin’s radar that didn’t take home Critics’ Choice Movie Awards included “Before Mindnight” for best adapted screenplay, written by Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy; Texas native Tye Sheridan, who got a best young actor nod for his role in Austin filmmaker Jeff Nichols’ “Mud”; and “The Act of Killing,” distributed by the local Drafthouse Films, for best documentary feature nomination.
