The Critics’ Choice Association, formerly the Broadcast Film Critics’ Association, will be celebrating its 25th annual awards ceremony on January 12, 2020 live on The CW Network. As one of the largest voting bodies outside of the Oscars and Emmys, it’s no doubt the CCA’s nominations, announced today, will likely influence other critic groups. “The Irishman” garnered the most nominations with 14 followed closely by “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood” with 12. “Little Women” received 9, “1917” and “Marriage Story” 8, and “Jojo Rabbit,” “Joker,” and “Parasite” each with 7.
The list proved to be a strong one for the controversial streaming services of both Netflix and Amazon, earring 61 nominations (inclusive of both movies and television) and 14, respectively. In the category of Best Picture alone, Netflix scored two of the ten seats at this table with “The Irishman” and “Marriage Story.” Columbia Pictures proudly takes up two more seats with “Little Women” and “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood.” The remaining films, “1917,” “Ford v Ferrari,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “Joker,” “Parasite,” and “Uncut Gems” rounds out this unique yet not unexpected list.
Were there snubs in any categories? Chuck and I both think there were and we will be chatting about that on this coming week’s podcast. For a complete list of nominations for the Critics’ Choice Association, go to http://www.criticschoice.com/critics-choice-awards/
