And just like that, one of the biggest awards at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards is gone!
But that's only because Richard Linklater won it!
The man behind Boyhood won the award for Best Director, and we have to say, none of the other pieces could really compare to his 12-year project.
It's seriously one of a kind!
To win the honor, Richard beat out Wes Anderson for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Ava DuVernay for Selma, David Fincher for Gone Girl, Alejandro G. Inarritu for Birdman, and Angelina Jolie for Unbroken.
Congrats again, Richard!
Ch-ch-check out his unjustly rushed acceptance speech (above)!!!
We're laughing just reading the names of these noms!
The Critics' Choice Movie Awards made Jenny Slate's night when they awarded her the Best Actress In A Comedy, and her acceptance speech was as funny as you'd imagine it would be!
Miz Slate won for her role in Obvious Child and it was no easy task!
We told you it was some stiff competition!
Ch-ch-check out her acceptance speech (above)!
Is anyone more deserving of this award?
Ron Howard was honored with the LOUIS XIII Critics' Choice Genius Award at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, and boy did he earn it!
Chris Hemsworth presented the award, explaining all of the marvelous things that Mr. Howard has done throughout the years.
It doesn't matter how old you are, you HAVE seen a Ron Howard movie, and we guarantee that you enjoyed it.
Don't believe us?
Ch-ch-check out the moment he was honored (above)!
It was gonna be hard to follow Michael Strahan's Maleficent costume, but Michael Keaton did just that as he won his second Critics’ Choice Movie Award of the night!
Michael had already been a part of the award for Best Acting Ensemble, but he was able to add Best Actor in a Comedy for his work in Birdman.
His speech was short, yet really funny, so we can totally see how why he won!
To claim the title as funniest man in the room, Michael beat out Jon Favreau for Chef, Ralph Fiennes for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Bill Murray for St. Vincent, Chris Rock for Top Five, and Channing Tatum for 22 Jump Street.
Ch-ch-check out Michael not taking things too seriously (above)!!!
What was she thinkin'!?
If there's one thing we learned from watching Thursday night's Critics' Choice Awards, it's that it didn't take itself too seriously.
Well it looks like Amy Adams decided to let loose as well as she photobombed a pic of Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann!
Judd is totally thinking _____________________, but the only thing on Amy's mind is _______________________!

History in the making!
The Critics' Choice Movie Awards gave away their first-ever MVP Award, and they couldn't have given it to a more deserving actress.
Jessica Chastain was presented with the incredibly prestigious honor for her accomplishments in 2014.
Not only was she nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the award show, but she was actually in four critically-acclaimed movies: A Most Violent Year, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, Interstellar, and Miss Julie.
We knew she was busy, but we didn't realize she finished FOUR complete movies last year!
Ch-ch-check out her inspiring acceptance speech (above)!!!
We can't say this is too much of a surprise considering what happened at the Golden Globes!
They beat out Lana Del Rey for Big Eyes in Big Eyes, Jo Li and the Lonely Island for Everything Is Awesome in The Lego Movie, Keira Knightley for Lost Stars in Begin Again, and Lorde for Yellow Flicker Beat in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.
We wonder if this means they have the Oscar locked in???
