Sunday’s Critics Choice ceremony unfolds with celebrations held in both Los Angeles and London, as the Critics Choice Association (CCA) added the satellite location to include nominees who also attended the BAFTAs. The Los Angeles portion of the ceremony is held at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel, while stars gather for a late-night event at the Savoy Hotel in London.

Awarded by the CCA, the Critics Choice Awards traditionally head off awards season, taking place in early January. This year’s event was initially scheduled for Jan. 9, but was delayed due to concerns over the late December COVID-19 surge.

Last year’s awards were presented in a combined in-person/virtual hybrid show — with Diggs hosting solo and some of the presenters filming from a stage in Los Angeles, while nominees appeared remotely from various locations around the world. “Nomadland” continued its trek toward eventual Oscars glory, nabbing four wins, including best picture and two trophies to filmmaker Chloé Zhao; the best comedy prize went to “Palm Springs.” Top winners in television included “The Crown,” which one best drama plus individual trophies for stars Josh O’Connor, Emma Corrin and Gillian Anderson. The fourth drama acting prize went to the late Michael K. Williams for “Lovecraft Country.” The comedy categories were split between “Ted Lasso” and the final season of “Schitt’s Creek.” The limited series trophy went to “The Queen’s Gambit,” while “Hamilton” won for TV movie.

For 2022, the film categories are led by “Belfast” and “West Side Story,” each of which have earned 11 nominations, including best picture, while the television categories see “Succession” out front with eight nods, followed by “Mare of Easttown” (five nominations), plus “Ted Lasso” and “Only Murders in the Building” (with four nods apiece).
