This Sunday (7), happens the 26th edition of the Critics’ Choice Awards, an annual award that honors the best cinematographic and television achievements. Historically, the award has been the most accurate thermometer for Oscar nominations.
In 2021, Netflix broke the record for nominations: 46 for films and 26 for series, totaling 72 titles in the running. Due to the pandemic, the ceremony takes place in a hybrid way (face-to-face and virtual), with host Taye Diggs and other presenters present on a stage in Los Angeles, while the nominees participate remotely.
The award is voted by the American Film and Television Critics Association. Check out this year’s winners:
