Home awards Critics Choice Awards On Eve of Oscar Nominations Go to “Once Upon...

As we await the Oscar nominations at 8:30am Eastern, the Critics Choice Awards were handed out at a glittery ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” won Best Picture, and Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” won Best Ensemble. Best Director was divided between Bong Joon Ho, who made “Parasite,” and Sam Mendes, of “1917.”

The acting prizes were the same as they were at the Golden Globes. Three of the four winners were present. For some reason, Brad Pitt did not attend.

Television awards were also handed out.

Taye Diggs hosted the event in an airplane hanger at Santa Monica Airport. The menu was all plant based, and it was actually quite awful, just as it was at the Globes. When the show was over, a thousand people scrammed to restaurants and private parties. Pizza never tasted so good.

The one edible item at the Critics Choice was ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery. But man cannot live by ice cream alone.

The winners of the main film awards showed a tremendous divide among critics. Like the Globes, they largely rejected Netflix’s aggressive campaign to win awards — even though they have great movies.

So now we wait for the Academy Award nominations, and the eventual snubs and unexpected choices.
