VOTERS for the Critics Choice Awards could not pick an outright best actress winner, so split the prize between Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock. Streep, a winner for Julie and Julia, and Bullock, who won for The Blind Side, both attended the Los Angeles ceremony to collect their awards. Iraq war drama The Hurt Locker picked up the best film award, with Kathryn Bigelow also winning for best director. Bullock, who on Friday donated $1m to aid the medical charity Doctors Without Borders relief effort in Haiti, used her time on the winners podium to talk about the disaster. Were all so lucky to be here tonight when so many others are in pain, she said. I hope we can all send good love and thoughts and whatever we can. Last year, voters for the Critics Choice Awards plumped for Slumdog Millionaire as best film, paving the way for the British hit to sweep the Oscars, where it won eight awards on the night. BBC
