Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock Pictures: Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock pose in the press room at the 15th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards held at the Hollywood Palladium on January 15, 2010 in Hollywood, California. Streep and Bullock puckered up for a steamy kiss after they tied for the best actress award (Streep for Julie & Julia and Bullock for The Blind Side).

"The Hurt Locker," a low-budget indie drama about an American bomb-disposal unit in Iraq, won best picture and best director honors for Kathryn Bigelow at the star-studded event. Other notable winners at the Critics' Choice Awards included James Cameron's sci-fi epic "Avatar," which won six times, including best action movie.

The Critics' Choice Awards, organized by the 235 members of the Broadcast Film Critics Association in the United States and Canada, have established a reputation as the leading barometer of Oscar success.
