'Hurt Locker' takes Critics' top honor

The Broadcast Film Critics Association Friday (Jan. 15) gave out its Critics' Choice awards. Hurt Locker, which snagged best picture, began what may be an unstoppable drive toward Oscar glory in the same category. Avatar dominated the technical awards, and a tie between Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock in the best-actress category suggests a tight race when Oscar gets around to naming its best actress.

Kathryn Bigelow's Hurt Locker may prove explosive come Oscar time.
