BREAKING NEWS–FINDING NEVERLAND wins two Critic's Choice Awards, including Best Live-Action Family Film!

Congratulations to the cast and crew of FINDING NEVERLAND, which tonight won two Critic’s Choice Awards from the Broadcast Critics Association! Freddie Highmore, who plays Peter Llewelyn Davies, won as Best Young Actor, and the film won in the hotly contested category of Best Live Action Family Film. Although Johnny was nominated for Best Actor for his portrayal of J. M. Barrie, the award went to Jamie Foxx for RAY. SIDEWAYS won Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress; Best Actress was Hilary Swank for MILLION DOLLAR BABY; and Martin Scorsese was chosen Best Director for THE AVIATOR.

Johnny Depp did not attend the awards ceremony, nor did Freddie Highmore. Director Marc Forster accepted the Best Live Action Family Film trophy, stopping on his way to the podium to pull Kate Winslet up on stage with him. Forster’s acceptance speech was gracious and modest, as he acknowledged all who worked on FINDING NEVERLAND, including his wonderful cast.

This is the second year in a row that a film starring Johnny Depp has won the Critic’s Choice Award for Best Live Action Family Film. Last year, the honor went to PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN. Lovers of excellent family entertainment owe a debt of gratitude to Lily-Rose and Jack Depp, for inspiring their daddy to make some films “the kiddies” could cherish.
