Critics Choice Nominations Gets It Mostly Right But Snubs Annette Bening, Fantasia, George Clooney Boat Movie, “Wonka,” Chalamet, Ava DuVernay “Origin”

Share

The Critic Choice nominations are out. They weren’t supposed to be out until Noon Eastern time, but People magazine misread the time zone and announced them at 9am Eastern. There will be a lot of trouble right now.

The CCA Awards air Sunday, January 14th on The CW Network. They’re far more prestigious than the Golden Globes and taken a lot more seriously. They got the noms mostly right, although they snubbed both Annette Bening and Fantasia, which I’m sorry about. They also ignored new movies by George Clooney and Ava DuVernay, but that’s because they were screened so late in the schedule. Also, there was no affection for “Wonka.” Surprise Best Picture nom went to “Saltburn,” which was otherwise shut out of the main awards.
