A mere 24 hours before the Primetime Emmy Awards 2024, who were the winners at the 2024 Critics Choice Awards on Sunday night?

“Oppenheimer” continues its dominance on the Road to the Oscars 2024, after earning Best Picture and Best Director at the 2024 Critics Choice Awards held at Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport. The film also saw the cast earn the Best Acting Ensemble, while Robert Downey Jr. earned Best Supporting Actor. It was somewhat of an upset for the Best Actor award last night though, with Paul Giamatti earning the gong over Cillian Murphy for his role in “The Holdovers,” which opens in UK cinemas this week. 

Emma Stone and Lily Gladstone continue to trade wins in the Best Actress category throughout the awards season. While the pair both received accolades at the 2024 Golden Globe Awards last week, this week saw them both contending in the same category - with Emma Stone earning the win for her portrayal of Bella Baxter in Yorgos Lanthimos’ Oscar-tipped film, “Poor Things,” which opened in the UK on January 12 2024.

“Succession” received some of its final flowers at the event also, with Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook once again earning acting awards for their roles in the HBO series. At the same time, Jeremy Allen White and Ayo Edebiri continued their success during the 2024 awards season by complimenting their Golden Globe Awards now with two Critics Choice awards for their roles in FX’s “The Bear.”

“Barbie" wouldn’t be leaving the hangar empty-handed either, winning multiple awards including Best Original Screenplay, Best Production Design, Best Costume Design, Best Hair and Makeup, and Best Song for "I'm Just Ken." During the acceptance speech for the Best Song award, songwriter Mark Ronson thanked writer-director Greta Gerwig for including an “11-minute prog rock power ballad dream ballet shredfest” in the movie. He appreciated that it allowed both boys and girls to have an emotional connection with the movie.
