RECAP: 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards

The Critics’ Choice Awards were last night, symbolizing the second awards show of the year to recognize 2018’s best films and television programs.

Following just a week after the Golden Globes, multiple victories were doubled, while others found their place in the spotlight for the first time.

Roma, written and directed by Alfonso Cuarón, took home the award for Best Picture.

Though other nominees included films such as Black Panther, BlacKkKlansmen, The Favourite, Mary Poppins Returns and more, Roma was considered a “critical favorite” and was expected to take home the award.

The night took an unusual turn when it came to the winners of Best Actress and Best Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Made For Television.

Lady Gaga and Glenn Close tied for Best Actress for their respective performances in A Star is Born and The Wife, and Amy Adams and Patricia Arquette tied for their performances in Sharp Objects and Escape at Dannemora.

Though this is uncommon at awards show, it is not new. In 2009, Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway tied for Best Actress in films Doubt and Rachel Getting Married, respectively.

In 2003, Daniel Day-Lewis and Jack Nicholson tied for Best Actor in Gangs of New York and About Schmidt.

A Star Is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, was again snubbed a win for Best Picture, marking a disappointing awards show season for the movie.

It has enjoyed awards for Best Song and Best Actress, but has lost for Best Picture twice, once to Bohemian Rhapsody at the Golden Globes, and to Roma last night.

Other notable wins include Sandra Oh for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her performance in Killing Eve, as well as Bill Hader taking home the title of Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his work in Barry.

Though the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice Awards, and the Oscars all have different voting bodies and ways in which they decide who ultimately takes home the trophy, the Critics’ Choice Awards have been known to predict with remarkable accuracy the winners of the ever coveted Academy Award, with more than 70% of CCA winners going on to win an Oscar in their respective category.

The Oscars will be Sunday, February 24 at 5 p.m. PST.
