Critics’ Choice Awards Honor Joaquin, Tarantino, and Two Best Director Winners

     January 13, 2020

Are you having fun wrestling with the 2020 Oscar nominations? Just remember: They ain’t the only awards show game in town. Last night, January 12, the Critics’ Choice Awards honored the Critics Choice Association’s (CCA) favorite choices in 2019 film and television. In the film space, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood dominated several awards, while expected locks like Joaquin Phoenix and Renee Zellweger won leading actor awards. In the television space, Amazon dramedies Fleabag and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won big, while Watchmen somewhat surprisingly (and absolutely deservedly) dominated several other awards.

One surprising decision? There were not one, but two Best Director winners: Sam Mendes for 1917 and Bong Joon-ho for Parasite. Both films are indeed masterfully directed in wildly different ways, and it’s cool to see the CCA give out two deserving honors (also, they actually nominated a woman in their Best Director category, with Greta Gerwig getting a nod for Little Women, and winning Best Adapted Screenplay). Plus, because of many of the genre-specific awards given at the ceremony, popular, acclaimed flicks like Avengers: Endgame and Us got some well-deserved award show love. Winning special awards last night? Eddie Murphy received a Lifetime Achievement Award, and Kristen Bell received the #SeeHer Award, honoring women who promote other women in the entertainment industry.

Check out the full list of Critics’ Choice Awards in film and television below. For more awards show shenanigans, here’s all the snubs and surprises of the Oscar nominations. Plus: Tom Hanks‘ incredible Golden Globes speech is worth your time.
