Critics Choice Awards: ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ Takes Best Film

It was a big and somewhat surprising night at the 2020 Critics Choice Awards, of which I was in attendance for everything that went down. The biggest win of the night went to Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollyood, which came away with Best Film, a possible precursor of its performance in the Oscars, where it was just nominated for Best Picture.

A shocking surprise in the Best Director race, which ended in a tie between Sam Mends for his WWI film 1917, and Parasite director Bong Joon-ho.  Parasite also won for Best Foreign Language film, as expected. Also predicted by many was Joaquin Phoenix’s Best Actor victory for Joker, while Renn Zellweger won for Judy.

The Critics Choice tends to be a good indicator for the Academy Awards, and we will see how that plays out in the coming weeks.

Full list of winners on the film and TV side below!
