Critics Choice Awards Winners 2024: The Full List, From Barbie to Oppenheimer

The 29th Critics Choice Awards happened in Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar on January 14 and the consensus for the top picks of the critics from the film and television industry is officially out. Fine performances from across categories were applauded in the ceremony, which was hosted by acclaimed comedian Chelsea Handler, who hosted the awards last time as well.

As expected, Greta Gerwin’s Barbie and Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer won big at the awards. Barbie was nominated in 18 categories– the highest of all – and managed to win in half a dozen of them. However, Oppenheimer enjoyed the maximum number of trophies, with eight wins including Best Picture, Best Acting Ensemble, Best Director for Christopher Nolan, Best Supporting Actor for Robert Downey Jr., Best Cinematography, Best Score, Best Editing, and Best Visual Effects.

Paul Giamatti took home the Best Actor award for his role of a cranky history teacher at a remote prep school who unwillingly spends his holidays on campus and develops an unusual bond with a troubled student in The Holdovers. Emma Watson bagged the award for Best Actress for her role of a young women resurrected by a scientist in Searchlight Pictures’s fantasy dark comedy Poor Things.

Among other films that had multiple nominations across categories are Leonardo DiCaprio starrer Killers of the Flower Moon, Bradley Cooper’s Maestro, Cord Jefferson’ American Fiction and Alice Walker’s 1982 novel inspired The Color Purple.

On the television front, Apple TV’s The Morning Show won across six categories – the highest win for television shows. However, Beef and The Bear also made it to the headlines by winning awards in all four categories that they were nominated in. Another show that made it to the critics’ favourites was HBO’s Succession.

Warner Bros. topped the studio nominations with 25 of its films being nominated across categories. HBO/Max, on the other hand, received the maximum nominations for any television network this year.

Besides this, Harrison Ford was given the Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution in more than 40 movies to date in his career span of nearly six decades. His work in the Star Wars and Indiana Jones film franchises is particularly notable.
