Popular films ‘Oppenheimer’ and ‘Barbie’ swept the Critics Choice Awards, which was held in Los Angeles on Monday morning (IST). The Cillian Murphy-starrer took home eight awards in various categories, while ‘Barbie’ starring Margot Robbie also went on to win awards in six categories. The Critics Choice Awards, held annually by the American-Canadian Critics Choice Association, is reportedly a better indicator of the success at the Oscars, compared to the rest of the awards.

Christopher Nolan won the Critics Choice Award for Best Director while the movie, just like at the Golden Globes, bagged the Best Picture award. Robert Downey Jr, won the Best Supporting Actor for his role as the antagonist in the movie. The film also went on to win Best Acting Ensemble, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Visual Effects and Best Score.

However, Cillian Murphy, who took home the Best Actor award at the Golden Globes for his role as the titular character in ‘Oppenheimer’, lost to Paul Giamatti at the Critics Choice Awards. Paul won Best Actor for his performance in the comedy drama ‘The Holdovers’. Emma Stone won the Best Actress award for ‘Poor Things’, defeating Lily Gladstone who had won in the same category at the Golden Globe Awards held last week.

‘Barbie’, which had a disappointing tryst at the Golden Globe, shone at the Critics Choice Award winning in six categories, including Best Original Screenplay, Best Production Design, Best Costume Design, Best Hair and Makeup, Best Comedy and Best Song (I’m Just Ken).
