As expected, 'La La' and 'O.J.' dominate Critics' Choice awards


Even if you missed last night's three-hour A&E telecast of the 22nd annual Critics’ Choice Awards, live from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, you likely won't be surprised by the evening's big winners. As expected, “La La Land,” the most nominated film of the evening, took home eight awards, the night's biggest haul, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay (a tie) for Damien Chazelle, Best Song ("City of Stars"), and Best Score for Justin Hurwitz.

The top acting awards were all bestowed upon different films, with Casey Affleck taking home Best Actor for his work in “Manchester by the Sea,” and Natalie Portman awarded Best Actress for “Jackie.” The Best Supporting Actor trophy went to Mahershala Ali for “Moonlight,” and Best Supporting Actress to Viola Davis for her standout performance in “Fences.”

On the TV side of things, FX's heavily nominated "The People v. O.J. Simpson"  took home four trophies, including Best Movie Made for Television or Limited Series, Best Actress Sarah Paulson and Best Actor Courtney B. Vance.

As previously announced, Viola Davis received the first-ever #SeeHer Award, presented by the Association of National Advertisers in conjunction with A&E Network. Ryan Reynolds was the recipient of  Entertainment Weekly’s Entertainer of the Year Award, which was presented during the ceremony as part of a multi-platform content and promotional partnership launched this year between EW and the Critics’ Choice Awards.

Best Actor Casey Affleck, Best Original screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan, Best Young Actor Lucas Hedges and producer Matt Damon all represented "Manchester by the Sea' at last night's 22nd Critics' Choice Awards.
