Going into the awards show, the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) had bestowed 13 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards nominations on 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle. 12 Years a Slave did earn the Best Picture award along with a very well-deserved win for Lupita Nyong’o in the Best Supporting Actress category and American Hustle certainly didn't go home empty-handed, but the overall big winner of the night was Gravity with a record-breaking seven wins.

“Everyone acknowledges that 2013 has been a truly great year for films so our Critics’ Choice Movie Awards voters had an embarrassment of riches to choose from,” said BFCA President Joey Berlin before the show.

The winners certainly didn't disappoint when it came to delivering speeches, with Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey, Mark Wahlberg and newcomer Lupita Nyong'o standouts among the crowd with speeches obviously from the heart. Other memorable moments included Sandra Bullock, accepting the award for Best Actress in an Action Movie, being surprised into saying, "What the f**k?!" which the censors caught in time to bleep. Bradley Cooper also earned a bleep during his acceptance of the Best Ensemble award on behalf of the American Hustle cast. Winning the Best Young Actress award, French actress Adele Exarchopoulos from Blue Is the Warmest Color struggled with her speech and then confessed her team wasn't there to help her out and she was too young to drink. And Forest Whitaker moved the entire audience with his acceptance of the Joel Siegel Award for his humanitarian work.
