It’s Monday, and to give you that nice warm fuzzy feeling to start your week off I have the winners of the Critics Choice Awards.
So last night, the luvvies and nonces of Hollywood had another awards ceremony. They spent the evening wearing clothes that cost more money than your car. Drank expensive alcohol and ate a plate of pretentious food for which the price would be the equivalent of a month’s groceries. And they likely did all this while lecturing us, the little people, on how we should live our lives and be better people.
I won’t bore you with all the nominees, I’ll just give you the winners. I can sense your excitement! Here goes:
Paul Giamatti, The Holdovers.
This movie is making some noise so I’ll have to seek it out and review it.
Emma Stone, Poor Things.
I’m glad Lily Gladstone didn’t win this time. Three hours of acting like you are sick is not an achievement.
Best Supporting Actor
Robert Downey Jr., Oppenheimer. Deserved.
Best Supporting Actress
Da’Vine Joy Randolph, The Holdovers.
Best Young Actor/Actress
Dominic Sessa, The Holdovers.
Best Acting Ensemble
I seem to be in the minority for loving Maestro which wasn’t even nominated!
Christopher Nolan, Oppenheimer.
Best Adapted Screenplay
Cord Jefferson, American Fiction.
This movie actually sounds quite good. I’ll have to check this out too, but it’s a shame it stars Jeffrey “mumbling” Wright.
Best Original Screenplay
Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, Barbie. Whatevs!
Hoyte van Hoytema, Oppenheimer.
The different styles and techniques to capture the various eras of Maestro by Matthew Libatique would have been my choice.
Best Production Design
Sarah Greenwood, Katie Spencer, Barbie.
Best Costume Design
Jacqueline Durran, Barbie. Meh.
Janty Yates and David Crossman’s work on Napoleon takes my vote.

Winning all the girly categories.

A little video of Shawn T’s boyfriend, Ryan Goslin’s reaction is below.
