Critics Choice Documentary Winners

by Nathaniel R

"Jane," now in theaters, took the top prize at the Critics Choice Documentary Awards

Perhaps if I'm too stay in the Bfca (home to the "Critic's Choice Awards") I should run for actual office within them. Why? Well, change from within. I literally never understand their decisions like awards ceremonies where there are no rules as to how large a category is or isn't. They have this same problem in their main movie awards to a small degree but their documentary competition is even more unruly/nonsensical. These awards, held last night in Brooklyn, had (pause for shuddering) 16 nominees for Best Documentary Feature but 10 nominees for Best Director and only 6 nominees for Debut Documentary and so on and so on. No rhyme or reason! 

But herewith, this year's winners (links go to reviews if we've covered them). All of the feature film winners are on Oscar's long

Why Ryan Gosling Is Going to Win the Best Actor Oscar This Year

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: Lionsgate The award season tides might just be changing. Every year, there are clear favorites for Oscars, made pretty obvious after the Critic's Choice, Golden Globes, and SAG Awards all get handed out. About a month ago, if you'd asked us (or really, any Oscars odds-makers), we would have said that Casey Affleck was going to sweep the whole season and pick up best actor statues all the way to the Oscars. But the season has been more interesting than most, and now, we'd like to put out a theory that now has a lot of steam: Ryan Gosling will win the best actor Oscar for La La Land. Here's why we think he has a very strong shot.

Amy Schumer Is
Amy Schumer is "overexposed." So says her doctor in the below promo for Inside Amy Schumer season four. The star of Inside Amy Schumer is coming off quite a year. Trainwreck rocked the box office, she had an HBO comedy special directed by Chris Rock, hosted Saturday Night Live, became best friends with Jennifer Lawrence, took home a Critic's Choice Award and Emmy and opened for Madonna, but that's not stopping her from returning to her Comedy Central series. "Amy, the test came back positive," the doctor says in the promo below. "I'm sorry to tell you this, but you've been overexposed…Yes, you're everywhere, magazines, this Instagram photo of you on the subway wearing a...

Get Ready: Brie Larson's Next Red-Carpet Reveal Will Probably Surprise Us

Get Ready: Brie Larson's Next Red-Carpet Reveal Will Probably Surprise Us
She's got a Golden Globe, Critic's Choice and SAG award all under belt—now there's only the Oscar left. Will Brie Larson win? More importantly (to us), what will she wear? We're only half way through red carpet season, and already the Room star has impressed both fashion critics and fans at almost every turn. Does her major wardrobe choices reflect her earnest to win the golden statue? Perhaps, but every time she delights us on the red carpet, we want her to win that much more. From just looking at her red-carpet gowns from recent past, you will notice Brie has a habit of wearing seemingly simple dresses. On closer look though, there are unexpected details to elevate and amp up the entire...

Jacob Tremblay, Awards Season Hero, Got to Meet Leo at the SAG Awards
Jacob Tremblay, the 9 year-old star of Room, is this year's awards season frontrunner — not for any specific award, just for the honor of having the most fun at classy parties. And let us tell you, Jacob Tremblay has been having a lot of fun: Winning at the Critic's Choice Awards, dancing to "Uptown Funk" at afterparties, meeting Bb-8. Tremblay continued his campaign at the SAG Awards tonight. In his adorable red carpet interview (see below), he said that he had one goal for the evening: To meet Leonardo DiCaprio. Guess what, Jacob Tremblay met Leonardo DiCaprio. And that's not all, Tremblay also charmed audiences with a presenter bit with his co-star Brie Larson (who later took home a trophy for Room). "I can still remember the first time I was nominated for a SAG award," Tremblay joked. "I was only 9 years old, and I was competing against Batman." All hail

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Recap: Dr. Bad News Doctor

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Recap: Dr. Bad News Doctor
Last year's "Stakeout" is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Brooklyn Nine-Nine's low points, so I wasn't necessarily pumped for another episode that puts Jake and a second character in forced isolation. Although "9 Days" covers a lot of well-trod territory for the show — which has also already had plots about Jake and Holt working a case from Holt's house, and both Jake and Rosa trying to work through an illness or injury against their colleagues' advice — this pairing works, thanks to sharp writing and the continuing genius of freshly minted Critic's Choice Award winner Andre Braugher.Eschewing the show's usual stand-alone cold open, "9 Days" dives right in, explaining that Holt's a bit off these days because his husband, Kevin, is still away on a teaching assignment at the Sorbonne. Jake's closed all his cases (and bragged loudly enough about it that Amy

But on Monday, the Trainwreck star revealed she was "missing" him after having to go on tour. "Missing these people on the road," Schumer, 34, captioned a black and white group photo in which Hanisch, 29, stands next to her.

Oscar Prediction Updates - Carol's Up. But What's Down?

Will Oscar voters love how obsessed with Oscar statues the SAG nominated Trumbo is? It's been an enormously busy week with precursor decisions confusing and clarifying in equal measure. Even if you don't put much stock in the Critic's Choice Awards (also known as the Bfca, an organization that includes your host) it'll be interesting to see what they come up with since ballots were due today and so many questions remain. Though the organization prides itself on Oscar predictive power (a very weird thing to pride yourself on unless you're a pundit rather than a critic) the confusing nature of the race won't make things easy on any pundit.

While I've been accused of overthinking various races often (who, me?) such is the curse of punditry and Oscar obsessiveness. Here's where I think we stand now...

Sam Smith's Spectre Theme Released

Sam Smith's Spectre Theme Released
So here it is. As announced a couple of weeks ago, the gig of the 24th James Bond theme song has fallen to Sam Smith, and Spectre's opening credits will unfold to his 'Writing's On The Wall'. Following that short original snippet, the full thing has now been released, and there's a video too. Give it a listen and tell us what you think.Smith is the first British male solo artist to nab a Bond theme since Tom Jones struck like Thunderball in 1965. "This is one of the highlights of my career," he said of the song he reportedly wrote in 20 minutes. "I am so excited to be a part of this iconic British legacy and join an incredible line-up of some of my biggest musical inspirations.

Consider This: 'The Americans' Showrunners on Season 4 Plans, Reaction to the Season 3 Finale and Emmy Conspiracy Theories

Consider This: 'The Americans' Showrunners on Season 4 Plans, Reaction to the Season 3 Finale and Emmy Conspiracy Theories
After just one year, it could have been an oversight. Two years, though, that's a travesty. And if "The Americans" goes three straight years without grabbing a Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor or Lead Actress, then it can be safely assumed that if there is a God, he's a cruel one. Widely regarded as one of the best shows on television, "The Americans" has developed an obsessed group of critics and fans, as well as a vast of array of non-tv Academy accolades. The TCA, AFI, Critic's Choice and Peabody Awards have all honored the period drama from creator Joseph Weisberg and executive producer Joel Fields. Hopefully, this is the year the Emmys finally follow suit.

Best of Late Night TV: Jason Statham's Slap Jack and Allison Janney's Kiss Crusade

  • Moviefone
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

There's nothing better than watching Jimmy Fallon slap his guests on "The Tonight Show," which brings us to Slap Jack. It's like Black Jack only with slapping, and is basically an excuse for Jimmy to vent the pressure he feels from being the funniest host on late night television. This week's victim? Jason Statham.

Apparently, Allison Janney planted a kiss on James Corden at the "Critic's Choice Awards," and now things are somewhat awkward -- especially since Allison was a guest on James' show. However, Allison spoofed herself by filming a clip wherein she kisses random members of James' staff, and it's Hilarious. Allison Janney for all the awards!
