The 26th Annual Critics Choice Awards saw Chloe Zhao’s ‘Nomadland’ and the series, ‘The Crown’, win most of the accolades during the ceremony hosted by Taye Diggs in an in-person/virtual hybrid show on Monday morning.
Just like the recently-concluded Golden Globes award ceremony, a few presenters were on a stage in Los Angeles, while nominees appeared on screen from all across the world.
The American drama ‘Nomadland’, starring Frances McDormand, won Best Picture while Chloe Zhao won Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.
Actor Chadwick Boseman, who died last year due to colon cancer, won Best Actor for his role in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’ and Carey Mulligan won Best Actress for ‘Promising Young Women’.
‘The Crown’ stars Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin won in Best Actor and Best Actress in Drama Series respectively, while Gillian Anderson won the Best Supporting Actress award in Drama Series for her role of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on the show.
Jason Sudeikis’ ‘Ted Lasso’ won big in the TV comedy category; it took the Best Comedy award, as well as trophies for Sudeikis (Best Actor in Comedy Series) and Hannah Waddingham (Best Actress in a Comedy Series). The Canadian comedy show ‘Schitt’s Creek’ continued its solid run at award shows and won two awards, both in acting categories. Catherine O’Hara won Best Actress in a Comedy Series, while Daniel Levy won Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series award.
