GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Wins Big At This Year's Critics' Choice Awards

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Wins Big At This Year's Critics' Choice Awards

Guardians of the Galaxy walked away from the 2015 Critics' Choice Awards with two gongs, but one was far more significant than the other! Hit the jump to check out director James Gunn and star Chris Pratt's fun acceptance speech along with the full list of nominees and winners...

Guardians of the Galaxy didn't do too badly when the Oscar nominees were announced this morning, but it sadly didn't receive a Best Adapted Screenplay nod despite recognition from the WGA. The Marvel Studios movie did however do rather well at the Critics' Choice Awards tonight, taking home a gong for Best Action Movie. It still feels like we're a long way off from seeing comic book adaptations get even more mainstream awards attention, but to make yourself feel better, check out the fun acceptance speech in the video below! How do you feel about the results?
