J.K. Simmons was awarded with the Best Supporting Actor Award but he wasn’t there to accept the big honor!
J.K. Simmons, 60, nabbed the Best Supporting Actor Award, Jan. 15, at the Critics’ Choice Awards in LA and this is just another reason why you need to see Whiplash!
J.K. Simmons Wins Best Supporting Actor At Critics’ Choice Awards
This is one of the best films of the year and we are so excited for J.K. Simmons!
J.K. was up against some big names! He beat out Josh Brolin, “Inherent Vice,” Robert Duvall from “The Judge,” Ethan Hawke, “Boyhood,” Edward Norton, “Birdman,” and Mark Ruffalo “Foxcatcher.”
In case you haven’t seen this amazing film, it’s about a jazz drummer who attends one of the best music schools in the country and his teacher is J.K. Simmons. It’s fabulous, the movie was directed and written by Damien Chazelle.
This is a must-see film and we are so happy that he won! He wasn’t the only actor not there to accept his award. Bradley Cooper won the Best Actor Award for his role in American Sniper and he wasn’t there because he is currently starring in The Elephant Man on Broadway.
The entire night was incredibly memorable — Patricia Arquette won the award for Best Supporting Actress in“Boyhood,” and Michael Keaton won Best Actor for his starring role in Birdman.
