27th Annual Critics Choice Awards: The Winners

Last night, the Critics Choice Association (CCA) announced the winners of the 27th annual Critics Choice Awards LIVE on The CW and TBS.

The first in-person ceremony in two years hosted by Taye Diggs and Nicole Byer. This year’s event was an international affair, with celebrations in both Los Angeles and London. The star-studded gala in Los Angeles was held at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel, while in London more stars gathered at the Savoy Hotel for a late-night soiree that was part of the live telecast.

The Critics Choice Awards are one of the best precursors leading up to Oscar Sunday. In a perfect world, the CCAs would have been back in January and kicked off the glut of the action in 2022. However, the Omicron surge meant postponing until mid-March. The downside of the postponement is that many nominees had to choose between attending either the CCAs or the BAFTA Awards.

Following the ceremony, there were two afterparties to choose from: the CCA afterparty and the Netflix shindig, which was a star-studded affair. Netflix sure knows how to throw a party!
