Meryl Streep was also forced to share the Best Actress Critics' Choice Award in 2009, this time with young pretender Anne Hathaway. They were both, however, beaten by The Reader's Kate Winslet to the Oscar that year. Both the Oscar and Critics' Choice Award for Best Actor and Best Movie went to Sean Penn and the all-conquering Slumdog Millionaire respectively.

The Dark Knight won the People's Choice Awards' Favourite Movie, was nominated for the Critic's Choice, and was perhaps unlucky not to receive an Oscar nomination. Will Smith took Favourite Male Movie star, giving Johnny Depp a year off from collecting the prize, while Reece Witherspoon took the female equivalent.
