CHICAGO – It was a night to celebrate film, filmmakers, movie stars and the Chicago “school” of film criticism. The annual Chicago Film Critics Awards took place on February 9th in front of a packed house at the Muvico Theater in Rosemont, Ill. Mark DeCarlo of “Windy City Live” was the host, and celebrity appearances included Jane Lynch, Paul Sorvino, Joe Piscopo, Nadine Velaquez and Regina Taylor.

Also in the house were the members of the Chicago Film Critics Association (CFCA), including Adam Fendelman, Brian Tallerico, Patrick McDonald and Matt Fagerholm of HollywoodChicago.com. The awards show highlighted the best of the 2012 film year as determined by the CFCA in earlier balloting, and saluted the stars and filmmakers who contribute to the industry. Chicago’s own Jane Lynch received the “Comedia Extraordinaire” award, Actor Paul Sorvino took home the “Commitment to the Craft” honor, Producers Robert Teitel and George Tillman Jr. were given the “Commitment to Chicago” prize and actress Regina Taylor took home the “Oscar Micheaux Award,” named after the African American filmmaker who in 1918 began his career in Chicago.
