21st Critics Choice Awards

Now, I know were all still thinking about the Golden Globes, but there are another 17 events in the next two months. Sure, the Golden Globes are one of the big three, but, these smaller events are still pretty big. This Sunday is the 21st Critics Choice Awards in Santa Monica and will be hosted by TJ Miller. Now the Critics Choice Awards has a whopping 28 categories, from Best Actress to Best Hair and Make Up.

Since there are so many categories, we are splitting it up into two articles, the other will be on the website tomorrow. So on this article you will find out 14 of the categories and the nominees.

There is also a poll page for you to vote for yourself.

Best Actor:
Leonardo DiCaprio – The Revenant

Eddie Redmayne – The Danish Girl

Michael Fassbender – Steve Jobs

Bryan Cranston – Trumbo

Matt Damon – The Martian

Johnny Depp – Black Mass

After the Golden Globes last week, we should be able to predict a little bit easier. Damon won best actor in a comedy and DiCaprio won in best actor in a drama so it should be between those two:

Leonardo DiCaprio – The Revenant

Best Actress:

Cate Blanchett – Carol

Brie Larson – Room

Jennifer Lawrence – Joy

Saoirse Ronan – Brooklyn

Charlize Theron – Mad Max: Fury Road

Carlotte Rampling – 45 Years

Lawrence picked up best actress in a comedy in the Golden Globes and she could pick up a handful of awards here. Ronan won’t be far off but we think it will be:

Jennifer Lawrence – Joy

Best Motion Film:

The Big Short

Bridge Of Spies



Mad Max: Fury Road

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The Martian

The Revenant




We have a lot! Of films to chose from here. Star Wars is defently up there with more than a billion dollars in box office. The Revenant and The Martian should be up there, and The Big Short could reveal a surprise:
The Revenant

Best Director:

Todd Haynes

Tom McCarthy

George Miller

Ridley Scott

Steven Spielberg

Alejandro G. Inarritu

Inarritu picked up Best Director at The Golden Globes and looks like a favourite for this one too. Steven Spielberg should be near the top and don’t count out Ridley Scott:
Alejandro G. Inarritu

Best Supporting Actor:

Paul Dano – Love & Mercy

Tom Hardy – The Revenant

Mark Ruffalo – Spotlight

Mark Rylance – Bridge Of Spies

Michael Shannon – 99 Holmes

Sylvester Stallone – Creed

Stallone won this category at the Golden Globes but I think Tom Hardy could pull it off:

Tom Hardy – The Revenant

Best Supporting Actress:

Rooney Mara – Carol

Jennifer Jason Leigh – The Hateful Eight

Kate Winslet – Steve Jobs

Alicia Vikander – The Danish Girl

Helen Mirren – Trumbo

Rachel McAdams – Spotlight

We think this category is a simple one, it will be:

Kate Winslet – Steve Jobs

Best Actor In An Action Film:

Daniel Craig – Spectre

Tom Cruise – Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

Tom Hardy – Mad Max: Fury Road

Chris Pratt – Jurassic World

Paul Rudd – Ant-Man

We have it narrowed down to two actors. Chris Pratt and Tom Cruise. They both performed superbly in their films with Cruise doing more stunts than ever. Especially The Stunt at the start of the new Mission Impossible:

Tom Cruise – Mission Impossible

Best Actress in an Action Movie:

Rebecca Ferguson – Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

Bryce Dallas Howard – Jurassic World

Emily Blunt – Sicario

Jennifer Lawrence – The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

Charlize Theron – Mad Max: Fury Road

Lawrence performed well in The Hunger Games but we think it will be:

Emily Blunt – Sicario
