The Critics’ Choice Awards 2016 Highlights

by

Award season is officially in full force! Following the Golden Globes which took place last weekend, this Sunday was the Critics’ Choice Awards. A star-studded night featuring both film and television personalities, the Critics’ Choice Awards was witty, entertaining, and exciting. Hosted by T.J. Miller, the show featured hilarious antics from Miller’s opening monologue with the four “dancing critic” puppets to the reading of the worst review he’s ever received. The show was nothing short of a great time. In case you missed it, here’s a recap of the best moments of the night.

Best Young Actor/Actress: Jacob Tremblay, Room

How adorable was Jacob Tremblay? He stole the show with his heart-melting acceptance speech. Full of confidence, poise, and thoughtfulness, he delivered his speech perfectly, despite not quite being able to reach the microphone. “This is the best day of my life,” the young actor said. “I think that us working together made this movie come true and this award doesn’t just go to me for that, it goes to all of you guys as well.” Well, it doesn’t get much cuter than that. Can Jacob just stay 9 forever?

Jeffrey Tambor delivered a beautifully moving acceptance speech after winning Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as a transgender dad who comes out to his children as a woman in Amazon’s hit drama, Transparent. “This is much bigger than me,” he began his speech, going on to say, “I had an acting teacher who said, ‘When you act, you have to act as if your life depends on it.’ And now, I’ve been given the wonderful gift of having a role where I have to act, and we all have to act, because other people’s lives depend on it.” *Chills*

Kate Beckinsale slayed the Critics’ Choice Awards with her beautiful outfit. Among all the stars, she stood out for having one of the most gorgeous gowns seen all award season.

Best Supporting Actress: Alicia Vikander, The Danish Girl

While many were talking about Alicia Vikander’s dress, it was her speech that was the most powerful. Alicia plays the wife of a transgender woman (Eddie Redmayne), and discussed what a powerful duo the couple they portrayed was. “I was very happy and extremely grateful when I was invited to try and shed light and bring life to a story which I think all of us though was very moving but also very important to tell…” She then gave a shoutout to the producers raving, “I think you’re so gutsy, and so brave. And I know some of them worked for fifteen years to get this film off the ground.”

Although Mad Max: Fury Road had dominated most of the film categories, it was a pleasant surprise to see Spotlight take the place as Best Picture. Spotlight is a film that focuses on a group of journalists at the Boston Globe investigating allegations of child sex abuse in the Catholic church. The film also won the award for Best Acting Ensemble. (And what about that kiss?!)

MVP Award/Best Actress in a Comedy: Amy Schumer

Okay, but how badass is it that they created an award just for Amy Schumer? She was undoubtedly the MVP of the entire night, keeping the audience there and at home laughing ’till they cried. She’s had a remarkable year, with her accomplishments ranging from an HBO special and hosting SNL, to an arena tour and winning an Emmy. She won Best Actress in a Comedy for her first movie, Trainwreck, which is pretty freaking impressive. She joked about being a “plus, plus size actress” and having to write her own material. She sarcastically added, “That’s what you want everyone to say when a naked photo of you goes viral, you want them to say, ‘What a brave photo,’ like thanks. Wow, thank you.” Overall, Amy’s awards were much deserved and we can’t wait to see more of her!
