First we have Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow accepting her Best Director award at last night’s New York Film Critics Circle awards, and then George Clooney delivering a sardonic rib-poking introduction for Best Animated Film winner Wes Anderson (for Fantastic Mr. Fox), and then Anderson himself.

I had a great time at this event (thanks to Jeff Hill!). Food and drink were actually served to observing journos like myself despite the limitations I’d been told about earlier. I watched the whole thing from a nearby balcony. Apologies for my non-existent video-editing skills
