Superlative Sunday :: the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards and my thoughts on them

17 Jan

Tally for the show:

Spotlight: 3 (Best Picture, Best Ensemble, Best Original Screenplay – Josh Singer and Tim McCarthey)
The Revenant: 2 (Best Actor – Leonardo DiCaprio, Cinematography)
Room: 2 (Best Actress – Brie Larson, Best Young Actor/Actress – Jacob Tremblay)

Trainwreck: 1 (Best Actress in a Comedy – Amy Schumer)
Ex Machina: 1 (Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie)
Son of Saul: 1 (Best Foreign Language Film)
Amy: 1 (Best Documentary Feature)
Furious 7: 1 (Best Son – “See You Again”)
The Hateful 8: 1 (Best Score – Ennio Morricone)

Or, get it Fury Road get it.  I continue to care negative amounts about The Revenant and the Big Short, but I’m still incredibly proud of Brie Larson and I want to see her movie, I’m glad Spotlight got those because drift partner says they’re deserved, and most of these don’t surprise me too much.  Look at our little film that could with 9 wins.

And as far as television shows: I’m sure Fargo is good I need to catch up, I’m proud of Idris Elba and Constance Zimmer, I don’t care about any of the rest.
