21st Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards Winners

So last night was the broadcast of the BFCA awards and show was alright, nothing especial but yes, I fall asleep! Now I'm wonder if will not happen the same at the Oscars show, perhaps is the winners that put me to sleep... Maybe was that most of the top winners were not even there, which always is a bummer for any awards show. Then there was no broadcast red carpet (lol) which we all know is the indispensable awards show companion for merely entertainment purposes.

The best twitter from last night is one that said something like this: "winners thanks critics for their reviews that viewers read, none of the reviews people read come from critics" (lol); somehow believe reflects a constant changing truth, that's the power of internet nowadays!

Going back to the show, the best moment for me undoubtedly was when Jacob Tremblay won Best Young Actor/Actress as strongly believe he's the only lead in Room (Larson is supporting him) and yes, also believe he gave the most adorable/charming/entertaining/good-television acceptance speech. Bravo! and hope to see much more from him. The second great moment was Alicia Vikander going up to the stage twice!

Most hideous trend of the awards season? Outstanding Carol leaving empty handed and BFCA awards were no exception. Sigh.  Mad Max was the big winner of the night with seven (7) awards out of the 13 nominations it had.

Winners are in *BLUE. To check winners in TV categories go here

The Broadcast Film Critics Association is the largest film critics organization in the United States and Canada, representing more than 300 television, radio and online critics. Each year BFCA honors the finest achievement in filmmaking with their Critics' Choice Movie Awards and today they announced their nominees.

The winners will be revealed at the awards ceremony, which will broadcast live on A&E from the Hollywood Palladium on January 17th at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT, at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica and will be hosted by T. J. Miller. Red carpet broadcast will be during one hour before the show begins.  The awards show will air simultaneously on A&E, Lifetime and LMN.

Mad Max: Fury Road leads the nominations with 13 and finally Charlize Theron has a nomination, as a matter of fact she has 2, one for Best Actress and another for Best Actress in an Action Movie.  Carol, The Martian and The Revenant follow with 9 nominations each; Spotlight has 8, The Big Short 7, and The Hateful Eight with 6.

Remarkable is that Jennifer Lawrence has three nominations for her work in Joy and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2; then with 2 nominations Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy and Rachel McAdams.

There are too many categories and some are really ridiculous if you check listed nominees, but if you concentrate only in top categories then maybe we have something interesting.  But most remarkable will be the clash of egos IF all nominees attend the TV show, especially the male nominees ...  the likes of Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Sylvester Stallone, Daniel Craig, Tom Hardy, Christian Bale, Robert De Niro, Jason Statham, plus all the male actors from TV shows! (lol).
