David O. Russell‘s Silver Linings Playbook won big at Sunday night’s 17th annual Satellite Awards presentation in Beverly Hills, snagging awards for Best Picture, Best Director (Russell), Best Actor (Bradley Cooper), Best Actress (Jennifer Lawrence) and Best Editing (Jay Cassidy).
I think it’s asking too much of Glenn Kenny to pen some kind of dismissal or condemnation piece every time Russell’s film wins an award. SLP hating is a pro bono thing, after all, and Kenny has a job to hold down, bills to pay. He needs to divvy up the responsibility with at least one other Silver Linings Sourpuss, or better yet two.
Les Miserables‘ Anne Hathaway was named Best Supporting Actress and Skyfall‘s Javier Bardem nabbed the Best Supporting Actor award. Mark Boal won Best Original Screenplay for Zero Dark Thirty and David Magee‘s adaptation of Life of Pi was named Best Adapted Screenplay.
