After a high-stress day in Hollywood, stars were more than ready to party Thursday (January 10) at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards.

The ceremony, featuring honors from the Broadcast Film Critics' Association, took place just hours after the exciting and highly anticipated announcement of this year's Oscar nominations, but 2012's finest actors and filmmakers were relaxed, refreshed and even a bit cheeky by the time they gathered at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, to celebrate each other's achievements.

The evening's biggest wins ranged from predictable to vindicating. Anne Hathaway, the front-runner on everyone's list, won for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Fantine in "Les Mis?rables," as expected, then got a laugh when she pointed out that her name was misspelled on the slip of paper announcing her win. And Jennifer Lawrence proved herself a serious heavy-hitter despite her short time in the spotlight: She took home awards for Best Actress in both the Action and Comedy categories for "The Hunger Games" and "Silver Linings Playbook," respectively.


Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar Nomination Day Was 'Full Of Surprises'

The most exciting honor, however, was for Ben Affleck and "Argo." After a shocking snub by the Academy, which left him off the list for Best Director, he took the stage to accept the same award from the BFCA and joked, "I'd like to thank the Academy!" before laughing and declaring, "This is the one that counts." And an extra feather in Affleck's cap: "Argo" took home Best Picture too.
