Tom Tangney's 2013 Critics' Choice ballot

The Critics' Choice Awards were on Thursday night and what better way to check in on what made the grade than find out how movie critic Tom Tangney voted.

Find out who walked away as the critic's top picks in our photo gallery of the 2013 Critics Choice Awards.

Tom says that more than any other pre-Oscar awards show, the Critics' Choice is the most accurate forecast for who will take home the Academy Award in the top categories this year.

So save a few omissions, (Tom would have voted for Leonardo DiCaprio if he would have been nominated for Best Supporting Actor,) here's a taste of what his ballot looked like.
