Mere hours after the Oscar nominations, the Broadcast Film Critics Association have announced the winners of the 18th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards, where -- like the Oscars -- Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" led with the most nominations going in. And while "Lincoln" did just fine, taking home best actor, best original screenplay and best original score honors, it lost out on the big two prizes to Ben Affleck's "Argo," which won picture and director (coming after Affleck's snub in the latter category with Oscar earlier today).

While those were the only two awards for "Argo," "Silver Linings Playbook" led all winners with 4 awards, though notably 3 of them came thanks to the unnecessary new "comedy" categories, where it won best comedy, best comedy actor (Bradley Cooper) and best actress (Jennifer Lawrence). Lawrence -- while losing best "overall" actress to Jessica Chastain -- also won the best action actress prize for "The Hunger Games."

Announced winners below. Check out all the awards so far this season here.
