There were a fair number of disappointments in this year's Oscar nominations, but they were followed by some pretty stellar wins at the Critics' Choice Awards. Use them to salve your wounds.

You can see all the nominations and winners here, but here are the ones that we're pretty happy with:

BEST ACTOR

Michael Keaton – Birdman

Benedict Cumberbatch – The Imitation Game

Ralph Fiennes – The Grand Budapest Hotel

Jake Gyllenhaal – Nightcrawler

David Oyelowo – Selma

Eddie Redmayne – The Theory Of Everything

He's considered a frontrunner, but it's still one of the most deserving wins out there. Michael Keaton's turn in Birdman blew us all away. Birdman won a lot of awards last night, and they are all completely deserved. Here are the rest:
