‘Spotilght’ Wins Best Picture but ‘Mad Max’ Dominates Critics’ Choice Awards

2016 Critics Choice Awards

Spotlight won Best Picture at the 21st annual Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday night in Santa Monica, along with best original screenplay and best ensemble, but Mad Max: Fury Road took home nine prizes, with best director (George Miller) being the biggest.

The Big Short won three awards (best comedy, best adapted screenplay, and best comedy actor for Christian Bale), while The Revenant prevailed twice: best actor (Leonardo DiCaprio) and best cinematography. Also winning twice was Room, for best actress (Brie Larson) and best young actor/actress (Jacob Tremblay).

Other notable selections: Sylvester Stallone (best supporting actor for Creed), Alicia Vikander (best supporting actress for The Danish Girl) and Amy Schumer (MVP Award, best comedy actress for Trainwreck).

On the television side, awards went to “Mr. Robot” for best drama and Netflix‘s “Master of None” surprised for best comedy. Best actor and actress in comedy went to Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) and Jeffrey Tambor (“Transparent”). For TV drama, “The Leftovers”’ Carrie Coon took best actress and “Robot” star Rami Malek received best actor.
