At the Critics Choice Awards 2024, actors, editors, directors, writers, and more of the biggest names in film and television are honored by the Critics Choice Association, the largest critics group in the country. While a celebration of stars from screens big and small might remind you of the Golden Globes (which aired live last Sunday from the Beverly Hilton), the Critics Choice Awards are unique in that they have their own special categories, such as best young actor/actress, which is meant to spotlight burgeoning talent in Hollywood. This year, Abby Ryder Fortson (Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.), Ariana Greenblatt (Barbie), Calah Lane (Wonka), Milo Machado Graner (Anatomy of a Fall), Dominic Sessa (The Holdovers), and Madeleine Yuna Voyles (The Creator) were all in the running to win the distinctive award with Sessa ultimately taking home the honor. Before the ceremony began at the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport on Sunday, the Critics Choice Awards 2024 red carpet was the first stop for nominees—and their enviable guests—to showcase their style in front of press, photographers, and fans.
At the Critics Choice Awards 2024, hosted by Chelsea Handler and broadcast on the CW, Barbie lead the pack of nominees with a whopping 18 nominations, followed by Oppenheimer and Poor Things, with 13 nods each. Competition was tough in the best-picture category, with American Fiction, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, the Oprah Winfrey–produced Color Purple, The Holdovers, Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, Bradley Cooper’s Maestro, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, the Greta Lee–led Past Lives, Yorgos Lanthimos’s Poor Things, and Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn all competing to take home the coveted prize, which was awarded to Oppenheimer. And it was just as interesting to see who won in the television category, with The Morning Show and Succession facing off for best drama series, with Succession winning.
