There may be no Golden Globes show, but that didn't stop the L.A. Film Critics from handing out awards Saturday – and drawing stars.

The best picture honor went to There Will Be Blood, best actor to the film's star Daniel Day-Lewis, best actress to French actress (and La Vie en Rose star) Marion Cotillard and supporting actress to Gone Baby Gone's Amy Ryan.

The awards marked a rare appearance by the enigmatic Day-Lewis, who says he felt out of place amid the Hollywood glamour.

"It's a little shocking," Day-Lewis, 50, told PEOPLE. "It's a very different environment than the one to which I live in everyday."



Other celebrity attendees included comic Patton Oswald, director Sidney Lumet, and Sissy Spacek, who supported her husband Jack Fisk's production design award for There Will Be Blood.

Other L.A. critics winners included 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days' Vlad Ivanov (Supporting Actor) and There Will Be Blood's Paul Thomas Anderson (Director).

Some of the talk at the critics awards was the the writers' strike that has crippled Hollywood in recent months, sidelining one of the year's biggest events, the Golden Globes, Sunday.

"About the Writers Strike, you know, it's a strike. We've gone through it a lot of times," Spacek, 58, said on the red carpet. "I've been sharpening all my pencils. Go writers!"
