We now have a fairly good idea about who will be in the running for the Oscars when the nominations are announced on January 24. Last night, the Critics Choice Association (CCA) announced the winners of the 28th annual Critics Choice Awards LIVE on The CW. Hosted by Chelsea Handler, the star-studded gala was held at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

Everything Everywhere All at Once led the winners in the film categories, earning five awards including Best Picture, Best Director for Daniel Kwan & Daniel Scheinert, Best Supporting Actor for Ke Huy Quan, Best Original Screenplay for Daniel Kwan & Daniel Scheinert, and Best Editing for Paul Rogers.

Avatar: The Way of Water, Top Gun: Maverick, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and The Fabelmans took home one award each for Visual Effects, Cinematography, Angela Bassett for Best Supporting Actress and Gabriel LaBelle for Best Young Actor respectively.

In the series categories, Better Call Saul took home three trophies, winning Best Drama Series, Best Actor in a Drama Series for Bob Odenkirk, and Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Giancarlo EspositoAbbott Elementary won two awards, Best Comedy Series and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Sheryl Lee Ralph. The Bear’s Jeremy Allen White won one award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.

The Dropout also scored a pair of wins, Best Limited Series, and Best Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Made for Television for Amanda Seyfried. Weird: The Al Yankovic Story won two awards as well, Best Movie Made for Television, and Best Actor in a Limited Series or Movie Made for Television for Daniel Radcliffe.

John Goodman presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Jeff Bridges in a very special highlight of the evening, while Kate Hudson presented this year’s SeeHer Award to Janelle Monáe. The SeeHer Award honors a woman who advocates for gender equality, portrays characters with authenticity, defies stereotypes and pushes boundaries.

The 28th annual Critics Choice Awards show was executive-produced by Bob Bain Productions and Berlin Entertainment. The CCA is represented by Dan Black of Greenberg Traurig.
