Our Favorities From The 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards
The star-studded 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards (visit the official website) were held at the The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica last night and, believe it or not, but I actually watched a few minutes of it. Many people believe that the CCA’s are usually an excellent predictor the upcoming award season leading up to academy awards in February, so we’ll see how last night’s winners hold up as the weeks go by. Having said that, a few more heavy-hitting Oscar favorites will release over the next couple weeks, so those names will get added to the nominations list.
Let’s review the big winners from last night:
Best Picture: “La La Land”
Best Director: Damien Chazelle – “La La Land”
Best Actor: Casey Affleck – “Manchester by the Sea as Lee Chandler”
Best Actress: Natalie Portman – “Jackie as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis”
Best Supporting Actor: Mahershala Ali – “Moonlight as Juan”
Best Supporting Actress: Viola Davis – “Fences as Rose Maxson”
