It swept “Everything Everywhere at the Same Time,” while Golden Globe winners “The Fabelmans” and “The Island Spirits” lost.
As we already reported last night, Argentina, 1985 could not repeat what happened at the Golden Globes, and it was the Indian production RRR the one that won in the category of best international film. The big winner was Everything everywhere at the same timewhich took 5 awards at the 28th edition of the Critic’s Choice Awards.
In any case, the chances of Santiago Mitre’s film, with Ricardo Darín and Peter Lanzani, of being among the five nominees for the Oscar for best international film remain intact. And RRR is not in his way, since strangely India did not send this film to the Hollywood Academy, but Last Film Show to compete in that field.
As much as they repeated the same group that went to the Golden Globes (Mitre, Darín, Lanzani, the producers Victoria Alonso, Axel Kuschevatzky, Agustina Llambi Campbell and Cindy Teperman, Florencia Bas – Darín’s wife – and Dolores Fonzi – Miter’s partner -), this time the result was not the same.
These awards are given by the Critics Association of the United States and Canada (CCA), which has more than 600 journalists specialized in the entertainment sector and, after the industry boycott of the Globe Gold at 222, it looked like it would establish itself as the top Critics’ award in the United States.
That remains to be seen. Y We also have to wait for the rating index.
For the moment, they differed from the Globes in that the film created by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert -known as “Los Daniels”-, which came as the most nominated with 14 nominations, won the corresponding best film, best director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing or Editing and Best Supporting Actor for Ke Huy Quan.
As we said at the beginning, the big disappointments of the night were The Fabelmans -Steven Spielberg’s autobiographical drama- and the spirits of the islandwho had won in the Golden Globes for best dramatic and comedy or musical comedy film, and they started as favorites along with Everything everywhere at the same time.
Spielberg’s film, which opens in Argentina on Thursday, January 26, had to settle only for the best young actor award for Canadian Gabriel LaBelle. It was worse for Martin McDonagh’s film, since the spirits of the island She wasn’t even chosen for any of the 9 categories she had been nominated for.
Their protagonists, Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, missed the ceremony as they both tested positive for Covid.
For his part, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mysteryby Rian Johnson, surprisingly won the best comedy film and best cast categories.
The gala was hosted by American actress and writer Chelsea Handler and took place at the Fairmont Century Plaza hotel in Los Angeles, which also usually hosts other film awards, such as the Actors Guild Awards (SAG Awards in English).
Perhaps the most emotional moment was when Brendan Fraser, for The Whale (The whale) could not hold back the tears and began to cry on stage. In Darren Aronofsky’s film, he plays an overweight man who cannot leave his home. Fraser did come out of the ostracism of the Hollywood industry, after overcoming a depression.
Australian Cate Blanchett (tar) confirmed that she is going towards her third Oscar, winning in the best actress category after doing the same this week at the Golden Globes, and also the Volpi Cup at the Venice Festival, where it premiered. Also Angela Bassett, for Black Panther: Wakanda Foreverwho won best supporting actress, can prepare her speech for the Oscar.

Abbott Elementary (ABC) and the sixth and final season of Better Call Saul (AMC) were the top contenders for the most important television categories, with 6 and 5 nominations respectively, and they did not disappoint.
