Critics Choice Awards Go To Christian Bale, Lady Gaga, “Roma”, and More!

Last night, the Broadcast Film Critics Association handed out their prizes with the 24th annual Critics Choice Awards. The evening was notable for a few things. One was how many speeches just bulldozed over the set time period (it was amusing, so I kind of loved it). Another was that there were multiple ties, which is a bit unusual. Plus, it was a show that pays a bit of tribute to film critics, so kudos to my colleagues. Overall, a solid crop of movies and performers were honored, making for a nice little precursor as Phase One of the awards season winds down. The BFCA winners were highlighted by Roma taking Best Picture, as well as Christian Bale and Lady Gaga taking home two awards each. Bale doubled down on Best Actor prizes, winning Best Actor in a Comedy and the overall Best Actor statue for his work in Vice. As for Gaga, she won Best Original Song for Shallow and tied in Best Actress. Her turn in A Star Is Born was put on equal foot with Glenn Close in The Wife, setting up a big potential Academy Award showdown in Actress. You can see all of the results next, and keep them in mind as Oscar voting wraps up (but more on that soon).
