To say the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards was full of surprises is an understatement. John Voight was actually BOOED by the audience when he was nominated for an award, causing a moment of sheer awkwardness. Read on to see what the legendary actor did!
Uh…well this is awkward. During an event that was meant to be full of elegance and poise, Jon Voight, 77, found himself in the middle of an audience frenzy! The crowd at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards BOOED Jon as soon as his name was read aloud. The father of Angelina Jolie was up for an award at the time when people went crazy, making it an incredibly tension situation. The reason he was booed was because of his political views, and support for Republican Donald Trump.
Jon has spoken very honestly and openly about his admiration for the business mogul, even releasing a mini video titled, “Plea To Save America.” In the three-minute segment, Jon talks into a camera lens about all the amazing things Donald will do for our country if elected. We totally understand the frustration behind the President-Elect’s win, but was booing the correct way to go about it? Seems a little classless. But, like a champ, Jon did his best to ignore the rowdy audience, and continued to smile throughout the night.
Speaking of unexpected surprises at the award show, did you happen to catch Ariel Winter‘s stunning new hairdo?! The Modern Family hottie showed up in the blue carpet on Dec. 11 with a heavy fringe and new BANGS! We shamelessly nominated Ariel for Best Dressed at the event, with other nominees like Mandy Moore and Emmy Rossum also in the running. The Critics’ Choice Awards was definitely the highlight of the week, with so many incredible actor and actresses taking home awards and making us proud!
