Critics Choice Awards – Kevin Costner, Birdman, Boyhood awarded

Kevin CostnerKevin Costner received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards last night. The 59-year-old actor – who has appeared in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Dances With Wolves and The Untouchables during his lengthy career – thanked those behind the scenes of his movies, as well as his parents and wife Christine Baumgartner for their support.

He said: ”I would like to thank the directors who took the chance on me….to all the drivers who drove me early and late and kept me safe…to the people who prepared the food for us…thank you. To my assistants..to the crews who worked impossible hours…and of course to my fellow actors to always manage to fight their way to this mythical place called Hollywood, nobody has it better than us right? So try to act grateful. This can only end where it started so I want to say a simple thank you to my parents and my beautiful wife and partner.”
