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)!!!
