The 2010 Critics' Choice Movie Awards
Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock
A combination of awards, A-listers and Hollywood antics made for an entertaining evening at the 2010 Critics' Choice Awards in Los Angeles. After a tongue-in-cheek threat to fellow nominee Meryl Streep earlier in the week, Sandra Bullock (in an Alberta Ferretti dress and Irit Design earrings) made nice with the acting legend, planting a kiss on Streep when they tied for the Best Actress trophy. "I didn't expect it. It was all a sweet surprise," Bullock told USA Today of the attention she's getting this awards season.

Her Up in the Air co-star, George Clooney, skipped the festivities in order to prepare for an upcoming telethon to help the victims of the earthquake in Haiti, but Best Supporting Actress nominee Anna Kendrick hit the ceremony to cheer on Air director Jason Reitman, who picked up the award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Kendrick also took the opportunity to show some skin, giving photographers her best over-the-shoulder pose in a black knit gown by Elie Saab.
Zac Efron and Zoe Saldana
"It's a long shot, but it would be a dream come true!" said Zac Efron, when asked about rumors he'll replace Tobey Maguire in the next Spiderman flick. Efron certainly looked like a leading man when he joined Avatar star Zoe Saldana (in Jason Wu) to present the award for Best Song.
In Christian Dior, 2010
At the 2010 Critics' Choice Awards, the actress embodied Hollywood glamour in a corseted Christian Dior dress and a 16-carat diamond ring from Chopard.
An Education star Carey Mulligan added some edge to the evening's fashion lineup in a taffeta waterfall drape dress and accessories from Marni's 2010 Resort collection. "I want to buy every single thing, but I'm too poor!" said Mulligan, who admitted to developing a bit of an addiction to the designer line after trying on gowns in New York City last week.
Bradley Cooper & More!
The Hangover stars Ed Helms, Heather Graham and Bradley Cooper made it a team effort when they accepted the prize for Best Comedy Movie.
Kristen Bell & More!
Backstage at the Hollywood Pavillion, When in Rome co-stars Kristen Bell (in head-to-toe Prada) and Josh Duhamel congratulated The Lovely Bones star Saoirse Ronan on her Critics' Choice award for Best Young Actress.
"I've been out of the whole circuit," said Inglourious Basterds star Diane Kruger, who nevertheless scored major style points when she made her red carpet return in a draped Donna Karan dress and Jimmy Choo pumps. How did she choose the gorgeous gown? "It was simple and I loved the color," said the actress.
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt
John Krasinski (in Prada) and Emily Blunt (in Georges Chakra Couture) posed together before splitting up to greet fans and tackle the line of press leading in to the ceremony. Krasinski later suited up as Duckie from the famed '80s movie Pretty in Pink when he joined Amy Poehler to present a tribute to director John Hughes.
