Let the award season begin! Last night the New York Film Critics Circle Awards chose United 93 as the best film of the year. Helen Mirren won best actress while Forest Whitaker took home the best actor. Martin Scorsese took home the award for best director. Jennifer Hudson won best supporting actress for "Dreamgirls." Talk about life changing opportunities. The American Idol contestant shared the red carpet with all these A-list men. So lucky!
