Critics' Choice Film Winners Announced: La La Land Dances Away with 8 Awards, Including Best Picture

by | December 11, 2016 | Comments

The 22nd Critics’ Choice Awards were held in Los Angeles on December 11, hosted by T.J. Miller. Damien Chazelle’s musical La La Land led all films with 12 nominations, and it succeeded in securing eight of them, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Song, and Best Score. It also earned a Best Original Screenplay win, which it shared in a tie with Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea, winner of the Best Actor award thanks to Casey Affleck’s performance.

Natalie Portman nabbed the Best Actress award for her work on the historical biopic Jackie, which also won for Best Costume Design and Best Hair & Makeup, while indie darling Moonlight and sci-fi thriller Arrival, which both boasted 10 nominations, each came away with a pair of awards.
