To cap what was already an exciting and crushing Oscar noms day, the 20th Critics’ Choice Movie Awards unveiled its winners Thursday night at the Hollywood Palladium. Birdman stole the show with seven awards, while Boyhood stood up for the second most hardware with four. Jessica Chastain took home this year’s inaugural MVP award for her workhorse ethic and, during her acceptance speech, made a plea for diversity within her industry. Her words, of course, come on the heels of a wave of criticism that crashed down on the Academy for its not-so-diverse nominations earlier today. Attendees seemed into what she was saying (and rightfully so).
