The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) announced the winners for the 25th annual Critics Choice Awards on Sunday, January 12, and there were a few surprises. Not only did we get a tie for the Best Director award on the film side, but neither of the honorees actually came out with a Best Picture win, which went to Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood. On the TV side, Fleabag nabbed Best Comedy Series, Best Actress in a Comedy Series, and Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series to lead all winners, while HBO’s Watchmen took home a couple of the big acting awards, and Netflix’s When They See Us won Best Limited Series and Best Actor in a Limited Series. See below for the full list of winners.
