Hold on, I need a minute. Just one more minute. Screw it, I'll never be truly ready to digest what just went down. The 2016 Critics' Choice Awards were nothing like what I expected. They were slightly better than the People's Choice Awards (safe to say that the critics are wiser than the people) but not as great as the Golden Globes. The award show certainly changed things up for the rest of award season.
The fashion was nothing to talk about so I'm not going to waste your time. No, really. Everyone's outfits were pretty hideous.
The show's host, T.J Miller did an okay job. I would give him a 5 out of 10. Even he acknowledged the fact that Amy Schumer is funnier than him. Speaking of Amy, she won the Critics' Choice MVP award! The only thing that sucked about that is Judd Apatow was the one presenting it to her. I hate that guy. He's so pretentious and sexist. Ugh. But it was about Amy, not him. I can suck it up.
Ultimately the best moment of the night was when Room's Jacob Tremblay won a Critics' Choice Award for Best Young Actor/Actress. So freaking adorable (and that's coming from someone who thinks children are walking and talking germs). He started off by saying that it was the best day of his life and it was so cool. 9-years old and he already has a Critics' Choice Award. This kid is going places and will probably never live down the time he melted everyone's heart.
The winners were shocking. I was slightly panicked because Leo was nowhere in sight but Matt was. Turned out all was well and he accepted the award from Europe. Phew.
Mad Max: Fury Road was greedy taking home almost every award. I don't want to talk about it because it makes me want to cry.
Rachael McAdams gave Kate Winslet a run for her money winning Best Supporting Actress and I am totally okay with it. Since the beginning of festival season, I was rooting for Spotlight. I was in luck last night because it took home awards for Best Ensemble and Best Picture.
I restored my faith in The Big Short's Oscar winning abilities when they took home Best Comedy. It's the only film that I would be totally okay if they won big over The Revenant, just as long as they let Leo win an Oscar for Best Actor.
The odds are in everyone's favour for the SAGs which is kind of unusual considering that the Critics' Choice normally echo the Golden Globes and then the rest of the award shows follow suit. Not this time though.
