Coming less than a week out from the Golden Globes, the 2018 Critics' Choice Awards are here, and awards season is officially in full swing. Olivia Munn hosted the swift two-hour broadcast on The CW, with an able assist from Niecy Nash. With more categories and less time to get to them, some of the winners were revealed by having them come on stage to give awards in other categories.
After last weekend's somber black dress as a statement in support of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, the dresses were more colorful and bright, but the speeches worked hard to keep the message on track and in the public discussion.
There were a few surprises along the way, with "The Shape of Water" absolutely dominating the film side of things, which bodes well for Guillermo del Toro's chances come Oscar night. "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" continued its strong awards season as well, though slipping a little from its dominant Globes night performance.
On the television side of things, things remained largely the same as they did for the 2017 Emmys and the Globes, with "Big Little Lies" and "The Handmaid's Tale" cleaning up. "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" continued her awards surge, which puts her on a fast track for Emmy attention in 2018.
