With each passing awards ceremony, the Academy's snubbing of Ben Affleck for Best Director looks increasingly ridiculous. Some thought that 'Argo' winning Best Picture and Best DIrector at the Golden Globes was something of a fluke, but now that the critically acclaimed box office hit has won big at the Producer's Guild of America awards, you may want to shuffle around your Oscar bets.

The 2013 Critics Choice Awards winners were announced Thursday night, just off the heels of the 2013 Oscar nominations, which were revealed earlier that morning. Ben Affleck's 'Argo' certainly had much to celebrate (and not just because it's a fav of Roger Ebert's) -- aside from being nominated in the Academy Awards' categories for Best Picture and Best Director, 'Argo' also took home the titles for both those categories in the Critics Choice Awards.

2012 turned out to be a big year for movies -- 'The Avengers' and 'The Dark Knight Rises' helped make superhero movies cool again, while 'Cloud Atlas' and 'Life of Pi' painted mind-blowing visual effects on the screen, and Ben Affleck and Quentin Tarantino debuted their latest projects. For famed film critic Roger Ebert, it was a busy time as well, having written a personal record of 300 movie reviews in 12 months. But which one of all these films did he pick as the absolute best of 2012?
Being that it's the end of the year and all, Ebert put together his "Top 10" list of the best films of 2012 and he gave the top spot to...

The 2013 Golden Globes nominations were announced this morning when Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms took the press stage. Predictably, Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln,' Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty' and Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables' all went home happy with their respective noms, but an unexpected surprise was the inclusion of 'Django Unchained' in a total of five categories, including one for Best Picture! But who are the film's main competitors?

It wasn't but two weeks ago that 'Argo,' the Ben Affleck-directed hostage thriller, was considered a front-runner, and possible winner of Oscar gold. Two critics awards later, and now it's 'Zero Dark Thirty' that has taken its thunder, and possibly for good. But the race isn't over, and 'Argo' has just unleashed a featurette spotlighting how good it is.

It was a given: 'Skyfall' was going to win the weekend no matter what. What wasn't a given was 'Skyfall' shattering the opening weekend record for its franchise and positioning itself to become the most successful film in history of the James Bond films. 007 is back and after 50 years, he's showing no signs of slowing down.

Whoever first pitched 'Wreck-It Ralph' certainly got a nice big bonus check from Disney today. A cute hook that appeals to adults and kids + positive reviews = one of the biggest openings in weeks. And hey! 'Flight' didn't do too shabby either! Wait...are this good box office numbers? Does this mean the holiday movie season has officially arrived? Yes. Yes it has.
