The Broadcast Television Journalists Association and the Broadcast Film Critics Association got together to let their hair down tonight, handing out their picks for the top artistic contributions of 2017 (i.e., the Critics’ Choice Awards). Guillermo Del Toro turned out to be the night’s big winner on the film side of things, pulling home awards for Best Score, Best Production Design, Best Director, and Best Picture, all for The Shape Of Water. (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri took home most of the big acting awards, meanwhile, snagging Best Actress for Frances McDormand, Best Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell, and an award for Best Ensemble.)
Critical darling Get Out also got a couple of awards, with writer-director Jordan Peele getting recognized for Best Original Screenplay, and the film itself winning Best Sci-fi/Horror Film. (Where it managed to beat out Shape.) Other winners in tonight’s film honors include James Franco (Best Actor In A Comedy), Phantom Thread (Best Costume Design, duh), Wonder Woman (Best Action Movie), The Big Sick (Best Comedy), and Baby Driver (a shared win for Best Editing with Dunkirk.)
In TV land, meanwhile, it was a night for handmaids and Big Little Lies; Elisabeth Moss and Ann Dowd won Best Actress In A Drama Series and Best Supporting Actress In A Drama Series, respectively, both for their work on the night’s Best Drama Series (natch), The Handmaid’s Tale, while Laura Dern, Nicole Kidman, and Alexander Skarsgard all won for the similarly recognized Big Little Lies over in the limited series category. Ted Danson, meanwhile, was rightly recognized for his work as Michael on The Good Place, while Amy Sherman-Palladino’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel scored both Best Comedy Series and a Best Actress In A Comedy Series award for star Rachel Brosnohan. And Sterling K. Brown continued his awards show run, scoring a Best Actor In A Drama Series win for his continually excellent work on This Is Us.
