The Critics' Choice Awards are on Thursday night, and if you're thinking of skipping them, we urge you to think again. Sure, it's easy to focus on the biggest award shows of the year, like the Golden Globes and the Oscars, but the most golden moments of the season often come when you least expect them. We're shifting our gaze to past Critics' Choice Awards, where Sandra Bullock  made out with Meryl Streep , Ben Affleck  and Bradley Cooper  revealed a budding bromance, and Justin Bieber  donned a mustache and conducted interviews. With all the madness we've seen before, we can't wait to see what happens this year!
The loving embrace we got to witness between Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper  in 2013.
That moment at the 2013 awards when Ben Affleck  won for Argo and just embraced his baller status.
That time in 2012 when Brad Pitt  brought a cane, which was not unlike that time Jennifer Aniston used a cane  at the 2003 People's Choice Awards.
The electric current that was clearly running between Ryan Gosling  and Michelle Williams  in 2011.
When Leonardo DiCaprio , Ben Affleck , and Jennifer Garner  were just conversing in 2007 like they were normal humans and it wasn't a big deal.
Charlize Theron 's acceptance in 2004, when her face was saying, "Is this real life?"
In 2011, when Justin Bieber  slapped on a mustache and interviewed Jeremy Renner.
That moment in 2013 when Ben Affleck  and George Clooney  were both beside themselves with excitement.
In 2013, when Emily Blunt  opted to sit on John Krasinski 's lap instead of in her seat, and we all collectively sighed.
The full-on makeout sesh between Sandra Bullock  and Meryl Streep  in 2010.
That time at the 2013 awards when we were pretty sure Ben Affleck  and Bradley Cooper  had serious man crushes on each other.
