Argo Wins Top Prizes at the Broadcast Film Critics Awards While the Show Itself Almost Put Me to Sleep

First and foremost the host, Sam Rubin was a bit creepy, and not very funny, I love film critics, but they should never be hosts.  Could they not find anyone?  I will leave him alone, but boy was he bad!  Rubin did not know how to interact with Jackman, Hathaway, but Goodman's punch at him that his interview was Communist torture was one of the best moments of the night.  There was not even enough time to fill the two hours, there was a commercial break between all of the awards at the end.

Beyond the host, I have to ask why they even bother to televise this garbage.  Beyond the CW whoring out stars from their shows, this award show was about as entertaining as watching paint dry. Oh wait, I am watching a patch dry on my wall now and it's actually more interesting to watch.  The show plugged that they are "different" because they had genre awards, which is great and it was fun to see them honor action, comedy etc, but at the sake of showing Best Screenplay or Best Animated Feature?  You are not going to get more viewers because you do this.

I have to say thank God for Rebel Wilson.  Her presentation of the Genius Award to  Judd Apatow, was one of the best moments of the evening.  The two of them made this boring show come to life for the brief moments they were on the stage.

I also have to say that their winners were exceptional, Argo taking Best Picture and Director was awesome.  Chastain winning Best Actress, all of these wins were solid.
