"The Artist" Claims Top Boston Society Film Critics Honor, "Bridesmaids'" Melissa McCarthy Surprises 


The black-and-white, silent film (well, not quite entirely silent) "The Artist" took home the top honor at the 2012 Boston Society of Film Critics Awards. But director Michel Hazanavicius must contend to just be a runner-up against "Hugo's" Martin Scorsese's big win as Best Director.

Brad Pitt (Best Actor for "Moneyball"), Michelle Williams (Best Actress for "My Week with Marilyn"), and Albert Brooks (Best Supporting Actor for "Drive") took home acting honors, but it was Melissa McCarthy's memorable performance in the No. 1 women-centric comedy "Bridesmaids" that surprised the most! Yay and congrats to Miss Melissa! (Check out my fun interview with the actress for "Bridesmaids" right here)
