Baku, March 14, AZERTAC
Jane Campion rounded off a perfect weekend in Hollywood's award season by winning the top prizes at the Critics Choice Awards Sunday, setting her dark Western "The Power of the Dog" as the film to beat at the Oscars, according to AFP.
Campion - who has already won prestigious gongs from Hollywood’s directors guild and Britain's BAFTA in a packed weekend - took best picture and best director at the high-profile awards gala in Los Angeles.
The film's award charge comes just days before Oscars voting begins on Thursday, with the grand Academy Awards ceremony itself to be held in Hollywood on March 27.
The Critics Choice Awards - chosen by almost 500 members of North America's largest critics organization - laid out a lavish red carpet and gala in Los Angeles for Hollywood A-listers, at a ceremony hosted by Taye Diggs and Nicole Byer.
