Critics Choice Awards Updates: “Spotlight,” Leo, Brie (Room), Big Short (Comedy), Bale, Schumer, Stallone, Vikander, Miller, “Inside Out”

Share

The Critics Choice Award used to be pretty normal and fairly relevant. This year they added TV awards that were really weird. Also, it was obvious all the nominees knew in advance who’d won– Leonardo DiCaprio sent a video acceptance speech. On Twitter, whoever runs the Social Media account posted the winners almost before they could be announced on stage. The movie winners were similar to the Golden Globes. Does it mean anything? Does it affect the Oscars? Who knows?
