Hollywood’s finest made their way to Santa Monica for the 24th Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday evening.
The Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association honored the best in both film and television. The awards ceremony, hosted by Taye Diggs, is often credited as a fairly accurate prediction of the Oscars.
As always, the awards ceremony was filled with surprises, dissapointments and ties. Lady Gaga and Glenn Close both won for Best Actress in a Motion Picture.
Gaga and Close weren’t the only ones sharing the spotlight on Sunday. Amy Adams and Patricia Arquette also tied one another for the Best Actress in a Movie Made for TV or Limited Series.
The night also featured indivdual accomplishments for film and television stars. The Americans was awarded Best Drama Series, while The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won the comedy category.
Black Panther was able to get the recognition the film deserved by winning in three categories for Best Production Design, Best Costume Design and Best Visual Effects.
The Netflix drama Roma was awarded the one of the biggest prizes of the night with Best Picture.
Historical comedy-drama The Favourite, starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz took the lead with a total of 14 nominations. The stars took home the award for best acting ensemble.
In previous years, the CCA’s have correctly predicted eventual Oscar winners. Best Picture has been predicated accurately seven times, Best Actor eight times and Best Actress six times.
