♪ ♪

Taye: IT IS TIME FOR US
TOGATHER VIRTUALLY, ALTHOUGH
WE'D

RATHER MEET IN PERSON,AND
COLLECTIVELY REJOICE.

NONETHELESS, THIS CELEBRATION
IS A BRAND NEW ITERATION

OF THE PARTY THAT IS KNOWN AS
CRITICS CHOICE.

YOU WILL SEE SOME FAMOUS FACES
ON THIS STAGE AND OTHER PLACES

TYPICALLY FROM THE COMFORT OF
THEIR HOME.

AND OF COURSE WE'LL BE AWARDING
LEAD PERFORMERS AND SUPPORTING

AND THE TV SHOWS AND FILMS
FOR WHICH THEY'RE KNOWN.

WE HEARD THE SOUND OF METAL
AND SAW NOMADS NEVER SETTLE,

A PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN
MADE MEN SORRY.



DA FIVE BLOODS WERE DA BOMB.

THEY BLEW UP IN VIETNAM.

AND WE LEARNED KOREAN WATER
CELERY IS CALLED MINARI.

THESE MOVIES STREAMED
INTO OUR HOMES

AND FILLED OUR HEARTS DESIRE.

AND THIS YEAR'S SERIES OFFERINGS
WERE ALSO FULL BLOWN FIRE.

"THE CROWN" RE-SHOT THE WEDDING
OF PRINCE CHUCK AND LADY DI.

"LOVECRAFT COUNTRY" MADE US
WONDER IF WE ALL WERE HIGH.

SAUL GOODMAN'S LIFE WAS
COMPLICATED, SCARY, AND ABSURD.

"THE MANDALORIAN" WAS LOVED
BY EV'RY STAR WARS NERD.

"THE UNDOING" SAW HUGH GRANT
DOING SOMETHING PRETTY DRASTIC,

AND OUR OBSESSION WITH
"THE QUEENS GAMBIT"

WAS SIMPLY PAWNOGRAPHIC.

AND IF MY LITTLE SPOKEN WORD
HAS LEFT YOU WANTING MORE,



CHECK OUT ALL THESE SHOWS.

SEE WHAT WE HAVE IN STORE!

WE WILL SHOW YOU EXACTLY WHAT
WE MEAN.

YOU ARE CULTURAL DISRUPTORS.

YOU'VE GOT TO DECIDE.

YOU WANT TO BE SOMEBODY OR NOT?

I'VE GOT MY TIME COMING TO
ME.

IT ISN'T ABOUT WHETHER YOU
WIN OR LOSE.

IT'S ABOUT BEING IN THE ROOM.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

I LOVE THE WAY YOU SEE THE
WORLD.

ARE YOU RECEIVING THIS?

I COULD BE ANYWHERE IN THE
WORLD RIGHT NOW.

YOU DON'T EVER SAY A FINAL
GOODBYE.

JUST SAY I'LL SEE YOU DOWN THE
ROAD.

THIS MOVEMENT IS CALLED A
STRUGGLES BECAUSE WE ARE

FIGHTING FOR OUR LIVES.

THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING!

Announcer: HERE'S THE HOST OF
THE 26TH ANNUAL

CRITICS CHOICE AWARDS.

FROM THE CW'S "ALL-AMERICAN,"
TAYE DIGGS!

Taye: HELLO, EVERYONE.

I'M TAYE DIGGS, AND I'M HOSTING
THE CRITICS CHOICE AWARDS

FOR THE THIRD YEAR IN A ROW.

AND I'LL KEEP DOING IT
UNTIL THEY ADD AN AWARDS SHOW

CATEGORY.

THIS YEAR'S SHOW IS OBVIOUSLY
A LITTLE DIFFERENT.

SOCIAL DISTANCING MEANS
THAT MOST OF OUR PRESENTERS AND

NOMINEES WILL BE WATCHING THE
SHOW FROM AFAR.

AND SINCE MOST OF THEM ARE IN
THEIR LIVING ROOMS, I'M PROBABLY

THE ONLY PERSON ON THIS SHOW
NOT WEARING SWEATPANTS.

I CALL IT AWARD SHOW CASUAL.

FORMAL ON TOP.

COMFY ON THE BOTTOM.

ANOTHER GREAT ADVANTAGE OF
BEAMING INTO THE SHOW

IS THAT YOU CAN BE ANYWHERE.

WELL, ANYWHERE WITH WI-FI.

WE HAVE STARS IN ENGLAND,
GERMANY, ISRAEL, AUSTRALIA, AND

ALL OVER THE USA, EVEN HAWAII.

AND WE HAVE MORE LIVE NOMINEES
ATTENDING THAN EVER BEFORE.

EVEN THOUGH WE'RE VIRTUAL,
WE STILL HAVE TABLES FULL

OF CELEBRITIES AND FILMMAKERS.

THERE'S CAREY MULLIGAN,
STAR OF "PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN."

THERE'S THE "ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI"
TABLE.

ALL RIGHT, I SEE YOU LESLIE
ODOM, JR. IS UP

FOR THREE AWARDS TONIGHT!

"TED LASSO" HAS A TABLE.

WITH NOMINEES JASON SUDEIKIS
AND HANNAH WADDINGHAM.

AND HERE'S "DA 5 BLOODS" TABLE.

THE GREAT DELROY LINDO
AND FILMMAKER SPIKE LEE.

BY THE WAY, HERE'S A LITTLE TIP
FOR THE WHITE FOLKS.

DON'T THINK IT'S NECESSARY TO
OVER-ENUNCIATE THE "DA" IN THE

"DA FIVE BLOODS".

LET IT COME OUT NATURALLY.

"DA FIVE BLOODS".

A LOT HAS CHANGED THIS YEAR.

THIS WAS THE YEAR THAT FINDING
YOURSELF IN "SCHITT'S CREEK"

IS ACTUALLY A GOOD THING.

THEY HAVE FIVE NOMINATIONS.

THAT WAS TOPPED BY "THE CROWN,"
WHICH HAS 6.

ONE OF THOSE NOMINATIONS WAS FOR
HER PORTRAYAL OF PRIME MINISTER

MARGARET THATCHER.

SAY HELLO TO GILLIAN ANDERSON!

HI, GILLIAN.

CONGRATULATIONS ON
YOUR NOMINATION.

CONGRATS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Taye: WHERE ARE YOU AND
WHAT TIME IS IT?

I AM IN PRAGUE AND IT'S ABOUT
JUST AFTER 1:00 A.M. IN THE

MORNING.

Taye: YOU ARE STAYING UP
EARLY, ALL RIGHT.

DID YOU DRESS HEAD TO TOE
FOR TONIGHT?

OR JUST WAIST UP?

I DID PUT AN ENTIRE OUTFIT
ON.

Taye: EXCELLENT.

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF
PLAYING MARGARET THATCHER?

WHAT WAS THE FAVORITE THING
ABOUT IT?

PROBABLY I WOULD SAY GETTING
TO DO ALL THE BITS AT THE SAME

TIME.

THE CHALLENGE OF GETTING TO DO
ALL THE BITS.

THE VOICE, HER MANNERISMS, HER
WALK.

IN A BODYSUIT, AND THE WIG.

Taye: YES, THAT WIG.

WONDERFUL.

GILLIAN.

THANK YOU FOR CHATTING.

GOOD LUCK TONIGHT.

TO PRESENT IT ARE TWO PREVIOUS

TO HAVE A DATE NIGHT.

THAT'S RIGHT.

OUR DATE NIGHT RIGHT NOW.

EXCUSE ME?

WELL, I MEAN, WE CAN'T REALLY
GO OUT.

BUT WE'RE DRESSED NICELY.

IT'S A GOOD THING THIS SHOW IS

THERE IS NO WAY I WOULD EVER BE

ABLE TO PICK MY FAVORITE FROM
ALL OF THESE INCREDIBLE

PERFORMANCES FOR BEST SUPPORTING
ACTOR IN A MOVIE MADE

FOR TELEVISION
OR A LIMITED SERIES.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, IF THIS WAS
THE "JAVICIA CHOICE AWARDS,"

I WOULD JUST GIVE TROPHIES TO
ALL THE NOMINEES, BUT I THINK

EXPERIENCE IN LIMITED SERIES.

SERIES "SUPERNATURAL"

AND MOVE OUT NOW PLEASE.

DOES THE PRESIDENT KNOW ABOUT
THIS?

HE APPROVED THIS MORNING.

BEFORE WE MET WITH HIM?

WHEN HE CAME OUT AGAINST THE
JEWS IN THE DES MOINES SPEECH, I

WAS OUTRAGED BUT SINCE THEN, HIS
MESSAGE HAS BEEN ANTIWAR.

I DIDN'T GET ANYWHERE IN MY
LIFE WAITING ON SOMEBODY'S

PERMISSION.

Announcer: COMING UP:
LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA

INTRODUCES OUR FIRST BEST SONG
NOMINEE.

HI.

I AM PRESENTING BEST YOUNG ACTOR
AND ACTRESS COMING UP NEXT.

Announcer: WHEN THE 26TH
ANNUAL CRITICS CHOICE AWARDS

CONTINUES.

Taye: WELCOME BACK.

LET'S CHECK IN
WITH ANOTHER NOMINEE.

SAY HELLO TO JURNEE SMOLLETT.

JURNEE, HOW ARE YOU?

I'M WONDERFUL, HOW ARE YOU?

Taye: EXCELLENT.

YOU LOOK WONDERFUL TONIGHT.

THANK YOU.

Taye: CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR
NOMINATION FOR BEST ACTRESS

IN A DRAMA SERIES
FOR "LOVECRAFT COUNTRY."

I HAVE A QUESTION.

THAT SHOW WAS PRETTY OUT THERE.

HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR A
PERFORMANCE LIKE THAT?

IN ALWAYS.

I TRY TO OPEN MY CREATIVE
CHANNELS WITH AS MUCH RESEARCH

AS POSSIBLE.

WHAT LIFE IS LIKE TO BE A BLACK
WOMAN IN JIM CROW AMERICA.

THE PHOTOGRAPHY, MUSIC.

THE WRITINGS.

IT GAVE ME INSIGHT INTO
HUMANITY.

WOMAN WHO IS BATTLING WHITE
SUPREMACY AND THE PATRIARCHY.

Taye: ABSOLUTELY.

DID YOU WATCH ANY OF MY
PERFORMANCES FOR INSPIRATION?

ALL OF IT.

Taye: I THOUGHT I COULD SEE
LITTLE BITS.

PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW
THAT YOU'VE ALREADY WON

A CRITICS CHOICE AWARD FOR BEST
CHILD PERFORMANCE

FOR "EVE'S BAYOU" BACK IN 1998.

WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER
ABOUT WHEN YOU WON THAT?

MY FIRST TIME WINNING AN
AWARD.

I WAS VERY EXCITED.

I REMEMBER BEING IN A ROOM WITH,
LIKE, JAMES CAMERON.

REALLY COOL PEOPLE.

BEING AROUND ALL THESE COOL
PEOPLE.

Taye: YOU ARE WONDERFUL
THEN AND YOUR WONDERFUL TODAY.

THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK
TONIGHT, JURNEE!

AS YOU'VE SEEN, MUCH OF THIS
YEAR'S SHOW IS BEING DONE VIA

THE INTERNET BECAUSE OF THE
ONGOING PANDEMIC.

MANY OF OUR CELEBRITY PRESENTERS
ARE SHOOTING THEMSELVES FROM

HOME.

IT SOUNDS EASY ENOUGH,
BUT IT'S NOT.

HOW YOU PRESENT YOURSELF
FROM HOME SAYS A LOT ABOUT

WHO YOU ARE.

SO WE SENT OUR CELEBRITIES
AN INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO

OUR EXPERT HAS BEEN PRODUCING
HIS OWN SEGMENTS

FOR THE "DAILY SHOW
WITH TREVOR NOAH" FROM HIS HOME

IN NEW YORK.

HERE'S ROY WOOD, JR.
THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF

THIS YEAR'S CRITICS CHOICE
AWARDS.

THIS INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO IS
FILLED WITH TIPS AND POINTERS TO

OPTIMIZE YOUR CRITICS CHOICE
APPEARANCE FROM YOUR OWN HOME.

IT MAY SEEM OBVIOUS, BUT WHILE
TELECONFERENCING,

THE ITEMS IN YOUR BACKGROUND
SEND A MESSAGE

TO THE AUDIENCE.

FOR EXAMPLE, A FILLED BOOKCASE
TELLS THE AUDIENCE,

"I CAN AFFORD TO BUY BOOKS!"
AND WHILE THIS IS BOUND

TO IMPRESS, IT'S THE TITLES OF
THE BOOKS THAT SPEAK VOLUMES

ABOUT YOU.

SO YOU MAY WANT TO REPLACE YOUR
COPIES OF "ART OF THE DEAL,"

AND "THE BEST OF LARRY FLYNT"
WITH A FEW FILM CRITICISM BOOKS,

ESPECIALLY ANYTHING
BY GENE SHALIT.

NOW WE'VE COVERED HOME DECOR,
IF YOU MUST HAVE SOMETHING

IN THE BACKGROUND,
LET IT BE THE MOST POPULAR FORM

OF HOME DECOR.

CHILDREN.

GET OUR OF HERE, CHILD!

YOU ARE MESSING UP MY MOMENT
ON TV.

AVOID PLACING A TELESCOPE IN
YOUR BACKGROUND.

TO YOU, IT INDICATES THAT YOU
ENJOY THE HOBBY

OF STARGAZING.

BUT, TO OTHERS, IT MAY SAY
"MY NEIGHBORS DON'T HAVE

CURTAINS."

AND A WORD OF CAUTION, SOME OF
YOU MAY THINK YOU CAN GET AWAY

WITH BEING NAKED FROM THE WAIST
DOWN.

BASED ON PERSONAL EXPERIENCE,
I WOULD ADVISE AGAINST IT.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN
THE PRODUCERS MIGHT DECIDE TO

PLAY THE NATIONAL ANTHEM.

AND EVERYBODY'S GOTTA STAND.

THAT TIP IS FOR THE WHITE
PEOPLE, I KNOW THE BLACK PEOPLE,

WE AIN'T STANDING.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, IF YOU HAVE
EVER RECEIVED AN AWARD, I'M

TALKING IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE,
INCLUDE THEM ON YOUR BOOKCASE.

IT COULD BE A NOBEL PRIZE
OR A PEEWEE SOCCER

PARTICIPATION TROPHY.

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

AN ACCOLADE IS AN ACCOLADE.

AND, SUBLIMINALLY,
YOU ARE TELLING THE AUDIENCE,

"HEY, YOU!

LOOK AT ME!

I'M AN ACHIEVER."

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYBODY
AND THANKS AGAIN!

ALL RIGHT.

GET OUT OF THIS TUXEDO.

Taye: THANK YOU,
ROY WOOD JR.

NOW, YOU'VE PROBABLY SEEN OUR
NEXT PRESENTER

ON "BLACK-ISH",
"MIXED-ISH"

AND "GROWN-ISH".

I WISH I COULD DISH OUT AN "ISH"
JOKE HERE WITHOUT LOOKING

FOOL-ISH BUT I CAN'T ACCOMPL-ISH
THAT SO I'LL NOT ANGU-ISH

AND JUST FINISH WITH
A STRAIGHT-ISH INTRO:

HERE'S YARA SHAHIDI.

IN HOLLYWOOD, I GET TO WEAR
MANY HATS.

ACTRESS, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER,
DIRECTOR.

BUT WITH THESE NOMINEES, I GET
TO WEAR A NEW ONE.

SONGWRITING IS MY BLISS.

WHEN THE RIGHT WORDS MEET
THE RIGHT MUSIC TO

HELLO, EVERYONE.

I AM SO THRILLED TO BE HERE TO
PRESENT THE CRITICS CHOICE FOR

BEST ACTRESS IN A MOVIE MADE FOR
TELEVISION OR A LIMITED SERIES,

ESPECIALLY SINCE I HAND-PICKED
EACH AND EVERY ONE

OF THE NOMINEES.

IN FACT, NOT TO BRAG, I HAD
A HAND IN EACH OF THESE SIX

STELLAR PERFORMANCES.

AND YOU KNOW,
WHEN CATE BLANCHETT CAME

TO ME AFTER ACCEPTING THE ROLE
IN "MRS. AMERICA,"

I LOOKED HER STRAIGHT IN THE EYE
AND TOLD HER IF THERE

GRITTY SUPERHERO WHO

IS MARRIED TO AMERICA,
IT'S YOU, CATEY B.

AND NOW, HERE ARE SIX OF MY BEST
FRIENDS.

THE NOMINEES FOR BEST ACTRESS
IN A MOVIE MADE FOR TELEVISION

OR LIMITED SERIES.

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT A NEGRO
WOMAN TELEVISION PRODUCER

EXISTED.

ALL MY LIFE THAT'S ALL I'VE EVER
WANTED TO BE.

I'M GETTING MARRIED.

DON'T YOU GET IT?

I'M GOING TO MAKE A FAMILY.

I WON'T NEED ANYONE ELSE TO GO.

THIS IS WHAT I WANT.

IF YOU WERE TO SUDDENLY NOT
AFFIRM ME WHEN I NEED THE

AFFIRMATION THE MOST, IT SHOULD
MAKE YOU SOMEONE I SHOULD AWAY

FROM.

WOMEN ARE LIKE TEA BAGS.

YOU DON'T KNOW THEIR STRENGTH
AND UNTIL THEY GET INTO HOT

WATER.

DEAR FRIENDS KNOW ABOUT US?

NO.

JOANNA DOES.

SORT OF.

I WOULD SAY THAT IT'S MUCH
EASIER TO PLAY CHESS WITHOUT THE

MY BEST FRIEND.

ANYA TAYLOR-JOY,
"THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT."

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU TO THE CRITICS.

INCREDIBLE CREW IN BERLIN.

2019.

WHAT A PLEASURE TO WORK
ALONGSIDE YOU.

HONESTLY IT WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN
THE SAME WITHOUT EVERY SINGLE

ONE OF YOUR SOULS BEING THERE.

IT WAS A PRIVILEGE TO WATCH YOU
WORK EVERY DAY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LETTING ME
BE PART OF IT.

THANK YOU.

YOU KNOW HER FROM
"BROOKLYN NINE-NINE"

AND "THE CLOSER".

SHE'S CURRENTLY STARRING
IN THE NEW COMEDY

SERIES "CALL YOUR MOTHER."

HERE'S KYRA SEDGWICK.

IN OUR HOUSE, WE ARE BIG FANS
OF MOVIES MADE FOR TELEVISION

AND LIMITED SERIES.

IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME,
THEY DELIVER COMPELLING

STORIES AND TOP-NOTCH
PERFORMANCES FROM ACTORS WE'RE

OFTEN USED TO SEEING ON THE BIG
SCREEN.

AND WHEN THEY'RE OVER,
WE CHECK AND CHECK AGAIN,

HOPING THAT WE MISSED AN
EPISODE.

THAT'S THE BEAUTY OF A MOVIE
MADE FOR TELEVISION

OR LIMITED SERIES.

THEY ALWAYS LEAVE YOU
WANTING MORE.

AND SO DO THE ACTORS WHO STAR IN
THEM.

HERE ARE THE NOMINEES.

ALL THIS IS GOING OUT OF THE
HOUSE TODAY.

IT WAS AN ACCIDENT.

AN ACCIDENT?

THAT'S WHAT WE SAY.

THEY ARE THE OTHERS.

LINDBERGH IS THE OTHER.

I DON'T THINK...

PEOPLE LIKE ME.

THEY'VE GOT THE UPPER HAND
NOW.

NOT FOR LONG.

SIGH CAME BACK WHICH MAY BEEN
SELFISH BUT I WANTED MY FAMILY

BACK.

I AGREE WITH YOU 100%.

WE NEED TO LOOK EACH OTHER IN
THE EYE MAN-TO-MAN AND GIVEN A

CHANCE WE WILL SOON REALIZE WE
ARE NOT DIFFERENT.

AND THE CRITICS CHOICE IS...

JOHN BOYEGA, "SMALL AXE."

WOW, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I SEE HER STARTING THE
CONVERSATIONS AND ASKING THE

THE SIX NOMINEES FOR BEST COMEDY
SPECIAL ARE AT THEIR OWN

SPECIAL TABLE.

WHAT'S THE FUNNIEST MOVIE
EVER MADE?

FUNNIEST MOVIE EVER MADE IS
"REPO MAN" FROM 1984.

EVERYONE IN THE MOVIE DELIVERS
THESE WEIRD COMEDIC LINES 100%

SERIOUS WHICH MAKES THEM EVEN
FUNNIER.

FUNNIEST MOVIE EVER MADE IN
MY OPINION.

"THE CASTLE."

I'M NOT -- I DON'T KNOW THAT
MANY PEOPLE IN AMERICA WOULD

KNOW THIS.

IT'S AN AUSTRALIAN FILM.

FUNNIEST MOVIE FOR ME, I
WOULD SAY "BRIDESMAIDS."

I WASH IT PROBABLY TEN TIMES.

I LOVE SEEING THIS HILARIOUS
GROUP OF WOMEN GETTING TO JUST

BE OUTRAGEOUS.

I THINK THE FUNNIEST MOVIE
FOR LAUGHS FOR ME WAS PROBABLY

RICHARD PRYOR, LIVE IN CONCERT.

THE FIRST TIME I SAW IT IN
HIGH SCHOOL.

FUNNIEST MOVIE EVER MADE IN
MY OPINION, I CAN'T JUST PICK

ONE.

IT'S LIKE PICKING YOUR FAVORITE
FAVORITE PIN PRINT PRINCE SONG.

NINE TO FIVE, COMING TO AMERICA.

Taye: HE'S ONE OF THE MOST
POPULAR AND RESPECTED ACTORS

IN THE WORLD.

HERE'S OSCAR WINNER

PLUS TIME, AND I COULDN'T
AGREE MORE, BECAUSE I

KNOW THAT SOME OF THE MOST
TRAGIC MOVIES I'VE STARRED IN

OVER THE YEARS, THEY ARE
COMPLETELY HILARIOUS NOW.

SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION?

A DELIGHTFUL BUDDY COMEDY
ABOUT A GUYS' TRIP TO MEXICO!

MILLION DOLLAR BABY?

A FALL-DOWN COMEDY WITH
A REAL RUSH OF ADRENALINE.

SEVEN?

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT'S IN THE BOX.

NON-STOP LAUGHS!

WE ARE GOING TO DO A SPRAY
TAN.

RACIST FAMILY?

STICK I WOULDN'T GO ANY DARKER
THAN A SIX OR SEVEN.

TOMORROW IS ALSO TODAY.

IT'S ONE OF INFINITE TIME LOOP
SITUATIONS THAT YOU MIGHT'VE

HEARD ABOUT.

DO YOU HAVE A SUITE?

NO, ALL THE ROOMS ARE THE
SAME.

SPEAK A WORD AND I SPENT MOST OF
MY TIME IN HIGH SCHOOL?

WITH YOUR REGRETS.

NO ONE WANTS TO GO TO A
RESTAURANT AND WATCH PEOPLE GET

TATTOOED.

IT'S GROSS.

HOW DO YOU BLUFF?

POKER FACE.

POKER FACE.

POKER FACE.

NICE.

AND THE CRITICS CHOICE IS...

"PALM SPRINGS."

WOW.

THAT'S AWESOME.

THANK YOU TO THE CRITICS FOR
CRITICALLY CHOOSING US.

YOU HAVE TO SAY THIS IS A REALLY
AWESOME CATEGORY.

I NOTICED ALL THE CON MONIES

LUCKILY WHILE WE HAVE BEEN IN
VARIOUS STAGES OF LOCKDOWN AND

QUARANTINE, THESE SIX NOMINEES
KEPT OUR SPIRITS UP.

NOT ONLY ARE THERE PERFORMANCES
FUNNY AS HELL, THEY ARE SMART,

POIGNANT AND HONEST.

IF YOU NEED TO LAUGH YOUR BOOTY
OFF FOR A SOLID HOUR, LOOK NO

FURTHER THAN TONIGHT'S NOMINEES
FOR BEST COMEDY SPECIAL.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A WIFE, WE
HAVE NOTHING TO TALK ABOUT.

YOU HAVE A GIRLFRIEND.

THAT'S WIFFLE BALL.

YOU ARE PLAYING PAINTBALL WAR
AND I AM IN AFGHANISTAN WITH

LOADED WEAPONS.

I HAND THE BABY TO SOMEONE SO
I COULD TIE MY SHOE AND MY

HUSBAND WAS LIKE, DO YOU KNOW
HER BUT IT'S A BLACK WOMAN.

WE ARE FAMILY.

COULD YOU PUT A COUPLE
STARTLING, DISTURBING SENTENCES

IN IT?

THEY DON'T NEED TO BE TRUE.

JUST SOMETHING TO JOLT THE
AWAKE.

APPARENTLY CANNOT JUST GO
UP TO POTENTIAL SUITORS AND GO

WHAT'S UP, MARK?

SOME GUY TOLD ME GOES INTO
THE HEAD, LOCKS ONTO A FEELING.

THAT SOUNDS GOOD.

I'M GOING TO TELL OTHER PEOPLE
THAT.

THAT'S HOW BRAND MARKETING WORKS
AND FASCISM.

ALUMINUM.

WHY WOULD YOU SAY ALUMINUM WHEN
YOU CAN FLIRT IT.

STOP IT, AMERICA.

AND THE CRITICS CHOICE IS...

OH, IT'S A TIE!

OH, MY GOD.

I LOVE THAT.

SO MANY WINNERS.

ACTUALLY JUST TWO.

THE FIRST CRITICS CHOICE IS
JERRY SEINFELD,

"23 HOURS TO KILL."

WOW, THAT'S FANTASTIC.

THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH.

I LIKE CRITICS.

I DON'T CARE IF THE REVIEWS ARE
GOOD OR BAD.

AND, MANY WE HAVE TO HAVE
CRITICS.

WE HAVE TO GET OPINIONS.

IN THOSE OPINIONS ARE HOW WE
FIGURE OUT OUR JOKES.

I HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED READING
REVIEWS.

THIS IS A VERY EXCITING THING TO
WIN.

THANK YOU TO THE CRITICS, AND AS
MUCH AS IT'S NICE TO GET THIS, I

KNOW WHAT WE REALLY WANT,
SPEAKING FOR FORTUNE AND HANNAH

IN THE MEANTIME, THANKS A LOT.

THERE'S ANOTHER WINNER.

BECAUSE IT'S A TIE.

THE OTHER CRITICS CHOICE IS:
MICHELLE BUTEAU,

"WELCOME TO BUTEAUPIA."

WHAT DO YOU MEAN!

OH, MY GOODNESS.

OKAY.

SHE WASN'T GOING TO GET
EMOTIONAL.

BUT THE DRESS IS TIGHT AND I'M
FEELING FEELINGS.

I PICKED THIS DATE, MARCH 1ST,
TO FILM THE SPECIAL BECAUSE IT

WAS MY GRANDMOTHER'S BIRTHDAY.

I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT
NUMEROLOGY BECAUSE I AM BAD AT

MATH BUT I THOUGHT WOULDN'T IT
BE NICE TO CELEBRATE IN THIS WAY

BECAUSE I'M SO GLAD I DID.

SO I COULD SHARE IT WITH THE
WORLD.

THANK YOU TO THE CRITICS.

EVERYBODY ELSE THAT WATCHED IT.

I WANT TO SAY IF YOU WANT TO DO
SOMETHING IN YOUR LIFE,

I'M ATTEMPTING TO PRESENT
THE BEST COMEDY SERIES

FOR THE CRITICS CHOICE AWARDS.

I THOUGHT YOU HATED
THE CRITICS.

I DON'T HATE THE CRITICS.

DIDN'T YOU SAY THAT CRITICS
ARE LAZY MORONS WHO WILL NEVER

ACKNOWLEDGE OR ACCEPT YOUR
TALENTS BECAUSE YOU'RE A FAT,

OLD, BALD GUY?

I NEVER SAID THAT.

OH, IT WAS MOM WHO --
AND THE NOMINEES FOR BEST

COMEDY SERIES ARE...

I ALWAYS FIGURED THAT T WOULD
TASTE LIKE HOT BROWN WATER.

YOU KNOW, I WAS RIGHT, IT'S
HORRIBLE.

WELCOME TO ENGLAND.

I WANT YOU TO BE MY TEACHER.

I WANT TO KNOW MY EGO.

I DON'T WANT TO BE JUST
ANOTHER ONE OF HER DESIRES.

I DON'T WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH
YOU.

IT'S GOOD.

DID NONE OF YOU EVER GO TO A
SLUMBER PARTY WHEN YOU WERE

KIDS?

FOSTER CARE.

NO, NOBODY LEAVES.

DO NOT LEAVE.

WE ALL STAY.

I SWEAR TO GOD.

I WANT TO THANK THEIR MOM.

HAD THE INITIAL IDEA TO DO IT AS
A TV SHOW.

YOU LIKE DOING THAT, YOU SHOULD
DO IT AS A MOVIE OR TV SHOW.

SHE WAS RIGHT.

IT'S BEEN A WACKY YEAR.

IT'S BEEN A WONDERFUL VESSEL TO
HEAR PEOPLE'S STORIES OF

FORGIVENESS AND REDEMPTION AND
HEALING AND UNDERSTANDING.

IT'S REALLY, REALLY FLATTERING
TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE

SOMETHING.

IT MEANS SOMETHING TO YOU GUYS.

IT MEANS A LOT.

THANK YOU.

Announcer: HE STARS
IN THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE

NOMINATED FILM
"ANOTHER ROUND,"

HERE'S MADS MIKKELSEN.

WITH ALL THE SERIOUSNESS
THAT'S BECOME PART

OF OUR EVERYDAY LIVES, ONE WOULD
THINK THAT THE LAST THING WE'D

WANT IS MORE DRAMA.

BUT WHEN THE STORIES ARE

BEAUTIFUL PACKAGES
BY SOME OF TODAY'S FINEST

PRODUCERS, WRITERS, DIRECTORS,
AND PERFORMERS, I SAY...

"BRING IT ON."

HERE ARE THE NOMINEES FOR BEST

TO YOU, THE COMMONWEALTH IS
SOMETHING OF A DISTRACTION, A

WASTE OF TIME.

IN MANY WAYS, I HAVE GIVEN MY
LIFE TO IT.

ISN'T TRUMP PRESIDENT?

NO.

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT, DIANE?

YOU ARE SO ARROGANT YOU THINK
YOU CAN FLIP AND FBI AGENT.

YOU KNOW HOW CRAZY THAT SOUNDS?

IS A CRAZIER THAN KILLING
SOMEONE?

FIND TRUTH AND SEEK JUSTICE.

YOU CANNOT SEEK JUSTICE WITHOUT
FIRST KNOWING THE TRUTH.

HE WAS SMALLER, HE TOOK THE
BRUNT OF IT.

I SHOULD HAVE PROTECTED HIM
MORE.

I ALWAYS FORGET THAT.

I WAS YOUNGER AND SMALLER TOO
TOO.

EITHER WE END THIS NOW AND
ENJOY THE TIME WE HAD AND GO OUR

SEPARATE WAYS.

OR WHAT?

IF I HAD BEEN THERE I
WOULD'VE WALKED THROUGH LITERAL

FIRE AND PULLED THAT MAN OUT.

I GUESS WE'LL NEVER KNOW
BECAUSE YOU WEREN'T THERE AND HE

DIED ASHAMED OF YOU.

ALL RIGHT, PAL.

IT'S TIME TO GO.

AND THE CRITICS CHOICE IS...

"THE CROWN."

ANNOUNCER "THE CROWN" COULDN'T
BE WITH US SO WE ACCEPT THE

AWARD ON THEIR BEHALF.

STAR OF "BRIDGERTON."

HI.

I AM PRESENTING THE AWARD FOR
BEST LIMITED SERIES COMING UP

SOON.

WHEN THE 26TH ANNUAL CRITICS
CHOICE AWARDS CONTINUES.

Announcer: WELCOME BACK.

ONCE AGAIN, TAYE DIGGS.

Taye: LET'S TAKE SOME TIME
TO SPEAK TO ANOTHER ONE OF OUR

NOMINEES TONIGHT.

HERE'S RIZ AHMED,
WHO IS NOMINATED FOR BEST ACTOR

FOR "SOUND OF METAL."

WHAT'S HAPPENING?

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

I AM A BIG FAN.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH,
LIKEWISE.

GOOD TO TALK TO YOU.

Taye: I'M GOING TO READ
YOUR LIPS BECAUSE I'M NOT

GETTING ANY SOUND BUT AS LONG AS
YOU CAN HEAR ME, WE ARE GOOD.

FOR YOUR ROLE, DID YOU DO ANY
TYPE OF RESEARCH?

I DID.

I'M NOT SURE IF YOU CAN STILL
HEAR ME OR NOT.

THE ROLE REQUIRED LEARNING A LOT
OF SKILLS.

I HAD TO LEARN AMERICAN
SIGN LANGUAGE.

I ALSO HAD TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY
THE DRUMS.

THOSE TWO THINGS WAS A EIGHT AND
A HALF MONTH PROCESS, FULL-TIME

EVERY DAY.

WEEK IN, WEEK OUT.

QUITE INTENSE.

IT WAS SOMETHING I WAS GRATEFUL
FOR.

LEARNING THE DRUMS AND LEARNING
SIGN LAY WHICH KIND OF CHANGED

ME AS A PERFORMER AT A PERSON.

IT OPENED ME UP IN NEW WAYS.

Taye: ALL RIGHT.

YOU WOULD BE PROUD OF MY LIP
READING RIGHT NOW.

I KNOW THAT YOU ARE A RAPPER.

DID YOU HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO
PLAY THE DRUMS?

HOW DID THAT WORK?

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO PLAY THE
DRUMS AT ALL.

WE DO MAKE MUSIC AND I THOUGHT
STUPIDLY IT WOULD MAKE PLAYING

THE DRUMS EASIER BUT KEEPING
RHYTHM IS DIFFERENT TO

COORDINATION THE KIND OF
DRUMMING THAT WE WERE DOING WAS

A BLAST BEATS, DOUBLE PEDDLING,
USE ALL FOUR LIMBS IN DIFFERENT

RHYTHMS.

IT'S REALLY, I BLAME OUR AMAZING
AND INSANE DIRECTOR WHO SAID

EVERYTHING IN THIS FILM I WANTED
TO BE AS REAL AS POSSIBLE.

WHEN YOU'RE PLAYING THE DRUMS ON
SCREEN, I WANT YOU TO BE REALLY

PLAYING THE DRUMS IN FRONT OF A
REAL AUDIENCE, REAL NIGHTCLUB

AND A REAL GIG.

WE HAD TO GO ON THAT JOURNEY OF
FORMING A BAND AND REHEARSING

AND LEARNING THE INSTRUMENTS.

Taye: ALL RIGHT, KEEP DOING
YOUR THING.

WONDERFUL WORK.

HER LATEST STAND-UP COMEDY
SPECIAL IS CALLED "CHELSEA

HANDLER: EVOLUTION."

I'VE LISTENED TO ALL OF HER
AUDIOBOOKS.

I AM A FAN.

HERE IS CHELSEA HANDLER.

I AM HERE TO PRESENT THE
CRITICS CHOICE FOR BEST TALK

SHOW.

AND, I HAVE TO SAY, THIS TALK
SHOW FORMAT REALLY HAS EXPANDED

SINCE I WAS HOSTING MY FIRST
SHOW.

BACK THEN, I WAS THE ONLY WOMAN
IN LATE NIGHT.

IT WAS MOSTLY MIDDLE-AGED WHITE
DUDES NAMED JIMMY.

NOW, HALF THE NOMINEES IN THIS
CATEGORY ARE WOMEN AND TWO SHOWS

FEATURE PEOPLE OF COLOR.

AND GUESS WHAT?

BOTH THE JIMMYS
ARE STILL HERE, WHICH GOES TO

SHOW YOU THAT WHEN YOU MAKE
ROOM FOR WOMEN AND FOR PEOPLE OF

COLOR, NO WHITE MEN HAVE TO GIVE
UP ANYTHING.

THERE IS ROOM FOR EVERYONE
WHEN OPPORTUNITY IS GIVEN

TO EVERYONE.

AND HERE ARE THE NOMINEES
FOR BEST TALK SHOW.

SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH
McCONNELL'S HOME IN

LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY, WAS
VANDALIZED OVER THE WEEKEND ON

THE WHOLE INCIDENT HAS
McCONNELL QUESTIONING WHETHER

AMERICA IS EVEN WORTH DESTROYING
DESTROYING.

LET ME JUST SAY THAT I SAW
SOME OF THE FOOTAGE OF Y'ALL

WITH BOOKER.

BEFORE YOU SAY ANYTHING.

QUIT.

DON'T DO THAT.

I HAVE TO DO IT.

I CAN'T BELIEVE MY LIFE!

THE STATE FLIP TO SENATE
STATE BLUE WITH THE ELECTION OF

FORMER ASTRONAUT MARK KELLY.

A MAN FROM SPACE CAME DOWN AND
SAVED US.

THAT IS THE PREMISE OF SUPERMAN.

ONE OF MY FRIENDS SAID IT'S A
SHAME YOU'RE NOT GOING TO EVER

BE ABLE TO MARRY AN NBA OR AN
ATHLETE BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT

GOING TO BE ABLE TO SEE YOU
BECAUSE YOU ARE SO DARK.

FOR ELECTORAL VOTE PURPOSES
I'VE FOURTH WITH HERE FOR

HEATHER TWO AND TWO-BY-FOUR CALL
THE LAST CHOCOLATE DOUGHNUT.

AND THE CRITICS CHOICE IS...

"LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS."

[LAUGHS]
WOW, THANK YOU.

I WANT TO THANK OUR WRITERS, OUR
CREW, INCREDIBLE PRODUCERS.

I WANT TO THANK THE CRITICS FOR
NOT JUST FOR THE HONOR BUT FOR

POINTING EVERYONE TOWARDS GREAT
TV AND FILM IN THE YEAR WHERE WE

ALL SO DESPERATELY NEEDED TO
FIND STUFF TO WATCH.

I AM VERY EXCITED THAT THIS
ISN'T LIVE.

I HAVE MY PARENTS RIGHT NEXT TO
ME WHICH I WOULDN'T HAVE

OTHERWISE.

BOTH FRESHLY VACCINATED.

SHOUT OUT, MODERNA.

IT'S FITTING BECAUSE MY MOM AND
MY DAD WERE MY EARLIEST CRITICS.

THAT'S HALF TRUE.

MY DAD IS A CRITIC.

MY MOM IS VERY SUPPORTIVE.

SHE IS LIKE AN AGENT.

ALL SHE EVER TELLS ME IS THAT
I'M CRUSHING IT AND SHE'S TAKING

10% OF EVERYTHING I'VE EVER MADE
MADE.

[LAUGHTER]
GOOD JOB.

THEY DON'T HAVE A TV BACKGROUND.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

REALLY FLATTERED AND HONORED.

[LAUGHTER]
IF YOU ARE A FAN OF

"BRIDGERTON," YOU'LL KNOW SHE
PLAYED DAPHNE BRIDGERTON IN THE

WORLD-WIDE HIT.

HI FROM LONDON.

I'M PHOEBE DYNEVOR.

AND I'M HERE TO PRESENT THE
AWARD FOR BEST LIMITED SERIES.

WHICH AS THESE NOMINEES WILL
SHOW, ARE ANYTHING BUT LIMITED

IN TERMS OF THEIR TALENT,
CREATIVITY, PRODUCTION VALUE AND

EVEN THEIR SUBJECT MATTER.

HERE IS THE CLASS OF 2020.

AND THE CRITICS CHOICE IS...

"THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT."

WOW.

WOW.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

TO THE CRITICS CHOICE
ASSOCIATION.

MY NEW FAVORITE GROUP OF CRITICS
CRITICS.

ALSO THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO MY
PARTNERS AT NETFLIX, CINDY

HOLLINS, GULLIBLE ENOUGH TO
BELIEVE IT WHEN I TOLD HER

PEOPLE WOULD WANT TO WATCH
CHEST.

TO MY FELLOW PRODUCER WHO TOOK
SUCH CARE OF THE RIGHTS FOR

THOSE YEARS AND TRUSTED ME WITH
SHOW.

INTO MY OLD FRIEND AND PRODUCING
PARTNER, BILL, FOR REALLY

PROTECTING ME FROM MYSELF.

I THINK IF THIS SHOW WORKED AT
ALL, THERE WERE A COUPLE

REASONS.

ONE WAS THE GREAT NOVEL WHICH
WAS AMAZING.

A HUGE GIFT FOR ME TO USE THEM
TO WORK FROM.

I'M INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL THAT I
HAD A CHANCE TO TURN IT INTO A

FILM.

I HOPE HE'S HAPPY, WHEREVER HE
IS.

IT WAS A REAL HONOR TO BE ABLE
TO DO THAT.

AND FINALLY, I DON'T THINK THE
SHOW WOULD'VE WORKED NEARLY

NEARLY AS WELL WITHOUT ANYA
TAYLOR-JOY, WHO OWNED EVERY

FRAME OF THE SHOW AND HAS A FACE
THAT LAUNCHED A MILLION NEW

CHESS PLAYERS.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU TO THE CRITICS CHOICE.

THANK YOU.

HERE IS THE FINAL NOMINEE
FOR BEST SONG.

IT'S FROM LEE DANIEL'S

Announcer: NEXT JOHN DAVID
WASHINGTON PRESENTS THE SEEHER

AWARD
TO HIS "MALCOM AND MARIE"

CO-STAR, BEST ACTRESS NOMINEE,
ZENDAYA.

WHEN THE 26TH CRITICS CHOICE
AWARDS RETURNS.

Taye: AS YOU'VE SEEN
THROUGHOUT THE EVENING,

THE CRITICS ASSOCIATION
HAS TEAMED UP WITH SEE HER TO

RECOGNIZE WOMEN WHO HAVE PLAYED
A POWERFUL ROLE ON AND OFF

SCREEN IN ADVANCING GENDER
EQUALITY IN ENTERTAINMENT.

OUR PREVIOUS HONOREES HAVE BEEN
VIOLA DAVIS, GAL GADOT,

CLAIRE FOY AND KRISTEN BELL.

ALL AMAZING WOMEN.

TO TELL US ABOUT THIS YEAR'S
HONOREE, ZENDAYA,

IS THE STAR OF "BLACKKKLANSMAN,"
"TENET," AND "MALCOLM AND

MARIE."

JOHN DAVID WASHINGTON.

IN HER YOUNG TEENS, SHE WAS A
DISNEY STAR.

BY HER 20s SHE WAS A MEMBER OF
THE MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE

THAT IS FILMING HER THIRD
SPIDER-MAN MOVIE.

ALONG THE WAY, ZENDAYA BECAME A
FASHION ICON AND THE YOUNGEST

WOMAN TO END LEAD ACTRESS EMMY.

DURING OUR MOVIE "MALCOLM &
MARIE," WHAT STOOD OUT TO ME THE

MOST BEYOND HER INCREDIBLE
TALENT WITH HER WISDOM AND HER

DISCERNMENT.

AT 24 YEARS OLD, ZENDAYA IS
ALREADY A FORMIDABLE ACTOR BUT

SHE IS ALSO A FORMIDABLE FORCE
FOR GOOD, FEARLESSLY USING HER

VOICE AND PLATFORM TO PUSH FOR
CHANGE, INSPIRING HER INSTAGRAM

FOLLOWERS.

SHE BELIEVES HER GENERATION HAS
THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE THE

WORLD.

ZENDAYA, ICU.

I SEE YOU.

OPEN THE DOOR, OPEN THE DOOR,
OPEN THE DOOR.

MEDIA IS A MIRROR TO THE
WORLD.

HAS THE POWER TO IMPACT CHANGE,
INFLUENCE CULTURE AND REFLECT

HOW WOMEN AND GIRLS SEE
THEMSELVES.

COME ON.

LIFE IS ABOUT FINDING EXCITEMENT
AND HAVING ADVENTURE.

MEDIA CAN INSPIRE OUR WORLD
BECAUSE WHEN SHE CAN SEE HER,

SHE CAN BE HER.

LED BY THE ASSOCIATION OF
NATIONAL ADVERTISERS, SEE HER IS

THE LARGEST GLOBAL MOVEMENT FOR
GENDER EQUALITY WITH THE MISSION

TO ACCURATELY PORTRAY ALL WOMEN
AND GIRLS IN MEDIA AND

ENTERTAINMENT SO THEY SEE
THEMSELVES AS THEY TRULY ARE AND

ALL THEIR POTENTIAL.

I BELIEVE THE PRIVILEGE OF A
LIFETIME IS BEING WHO YOU ARE.

IT WAS CLEAR TO ME THAT I
WANTED TO PORTRAY A STRONG AND

INDEPENDENT WOMAN.

OUR JOB IS TO QUESTION
OURSELVES, WHAT WE DETECT, HOW

WE DEPICT THEM AND HOW WE WANT
PEOPLE TO SEE THEMSELVES.

BEING A WOMAN IS NOT ABOUT
BEING BRAVE OR STRONG OR

POWERFUL.

IT'S ABOUT GIVING YOURSELF
PERMISSION TO BE THE THINGS THAT

YOU ALREADY ARE.

EACH YEAR THE CRITICS CHOICE
AWARDS, SEE HER RECOGNIZES ONE

WOMAN WHO EMBODIES THE VALUES OF
THE MOVEMENT.

I THINK IF YOU BELIEVE IN
YOURSELF, YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL.

TO PUSH BOUNDARIES, DEFIES
STEREOTYPES, AND ELEVATE THE

IMPORTANCE OF AUTHENTIC
PORTRAYALS.

ON AND OFF SCREEN.

USING HER VOICE AND PLATFORM TO
INSPIRE OTHERS.

YOU HAVE TO GO AGAINST THE
GRAIN AND MAKE PEOPLE ANGRY AND

MAD BECAUSE THEY DON'T AGREE
WITH YOU YET.

THAT'S THE WHOLE PART.

THAT'S PART OF THE PROCESS.

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

REALLY.

DO YOU WANT TO GO THERE?

YES.

THIS YEAR'S SEE HER HONOREE
IS ZENDAYA.

LOOK AT ME.

I'M THE LAST PERSON STANDING.

HOLD ON TO ME FOR NEAR LIFE.

IT'S MY GREAT PLEASURE TO
PRESENT THE 2021 SEEHER AWARD TO

SOMEONE WHO IS ON-SCREEN AND OFF
CHANGING THE WORLD FOR THE

BETTER.

ZENDAYA.

I'M GOING TO START BY SAYING
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO JOHN DAVID

WASHINGTON.

INCREDIBLY LUCKY TO HAVE YOU AS
A FRIEND AND A SCENE PARTNER.

THANK YOU TO THE CRITICS CHOICE
ASSOCIATION FOR THIS INCREDIBLE

HONOR AND SEE HER.

THIS MEANS SO MUCH TO ME.

I WAS THINKING OF THINGS TO SAY,
THE ONLY REAL THING I CAN THINK

OF IS GRATITUDE.

THIS WORD KEEPS COMING TO MY
MIND, ESPECIALLY WITH THE YEAR

THAT EVERYONE HAS HAD.

TO CONTINUE TO BE GRATEFUL FOR
EVERY SINGLE MOMENT BIG AND

SMALL.

TO BE GRATEFUL FOR THE PEOPLE IN
OUR WORLD AND IN OUR LIFE THAT

MAKE THE WORK WE DO POSSIBLE, TO
CONTINUE TO MAKE SURE WE HOLD ON

TO OUR LOVED ONES A LITTLE BIT
TIGHTER.

MAKE SURE WE CALL THEM,
ACKNOWLEDGE THEM AND TELL THEM

WE LOVE THEM.

AND TAKEN MOMENTS LIKE THIS AND
I ABSOLUTELY WOULD NOT BE HERE

IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE INCREDIBLE
WOMEN THAT HAVE PAVED THE WAY

FOR ME TO BE HERE.

EXTREMELY GRATEFUL FOR THOSE
WOMEN.

YES, THIS IS VERY, VERY SPECIAL.

THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH.

NOT TO OVERUSE THE WORD BUT I'M
INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL FOR THIS

MOMENT.

I'M CATHERINE ZETA-JONES AND
I WILL BE PRESENTING BEST ACTOR.

COMING UP NEXT.

Announcer: WHEN THE 26TH
CRITICS CHOICE AWARDS CONTINUE

REPRESENTATION MATTERS.

MATTERS WHO IS TELLING THE
STORY.

IT MATTERS THAT WE ARE SEEN AS
WOMEN, AS PEOPLE OF COLOR.

OF ALL COMMUNITIES.

STORYTELLING SHOULD REFLECT LIFE
LIFE.

Taye: WE'RE BACK.

SHE'S AN OSCAR AND TWO-TIME
CRITICS CHOICE WINNER

WHO CURRENTLY STARS IN THE
SERIES "THE PRODIGAL SON,"

HERE'S CATHERINE ZETA-JONES.

WOULD YOU BELIEVE THAT THE
EIGHT NOMINEES FOR BEST ACTOR

THIS YEAR HAVE WON A COMBINED
5,000 AWARDS IN

THE PAST FIVE YEARS?

NOW, I DON'T KNOW WHETHER
IT'S TRUE, BUT THE FACT THAT

IT'S BELIEVABLE IS A TESTAMENT
TO WHAT AN AMAZING BUNCH

THEY ARE.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THESE
AMAZING ACTORS' WORK.

YOU DON'T KNEW NOTHING ABOUT
ME.

YOU DON'T KNOW NOTHING ABOUT
WHAT KIND OF BLOOD I'VE GOT,

WHAT UP HEART I'VE GOT.

YOU'RE LEAVING ME, IS THAT IT
IT?

YOU'RE ABANDONING ME.

TAKE THE SHOT.

I WILL CHOOSE WHEN AND HOW I
DIE.

HOW CAN I PUT THIS?

I MAY BE A LOOSE CANNON BUT YOU,
MY FRIEND, ARE AN OUTSIDER.

IF I DISAPPEAR, WHO CARES.

NOBODY CARES, MAN.

SERIOUSLY.

THAT IS COFFEE.

COFFEE PACKS A PUNCH, DOESN'T
IT?

IT IS AN ACQUIRED TASTE.

AND THE CRITICS CHOICE IS...

CHADWICK BOSEMAN, "MA RAINEY'S
BLACK BOTTOM."

YOU KNOW, IT HAS TO BE SAID
ALOUD THAT FOR THOSE OF US WHO

KNOW CHAD INTIMATELY,
PERSONALLY, PROFESSIONALLY,

THOSE HE TAUGHT, THOSE HE GAVE A
WORD OF ADVICE, THOSE WHO TAUGHT

HIM, IT IS SO HARD TO FIND A
CELEBRATORY FEELING IN THESE

MOMENTS.

AS PROUD AS WE ARE OF HIM, YES,
FOR HIS WORK BUT EVEN MORE JUST

FOR WHO HE IS AS A PERSON.

HIS WORK DESERVES THIS.

HIS WORK IN THIS FILM DESERVES
THIS.

HE DESERVES THIS.

SO HE WOULD ALWAYS THANK GOD
FIRST AND FOREMOST AND

EVERYTHING.

HE WOULD ALWAYS HONOR HIS MOTHER
AND HIS FATHER.

HE WOULD ALWAYS ACKNOWLEDGE
THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE HIM, THOSE

WHO CHARTED THE PATH.

THOSE WHO GAVE HIM THEIR GIFTS.

HE MAY SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THE
IMPORTANCE OF THIS STORY, ABOUT

THE IMPORTANCE OF BLACK VOICES
TELLING BLACK STORIES.

HE MAY TAKE THIS MOMENT TO GIVE
HONOR TO AUGUST WILSON, ONE OF

THE GREATEST PLAYWRIGHTS OF OUR
TIME.

AND I RECENTLY READ, SOCIETIES
GREW GREAT WHEN OLD MEN PLANT

TREES IN WHOSE SHADE THEY KNOW
THEY MAY NEVER SIT.

OUR SOCIETY MAY BE A FAR CRY
FROM GREAT BUT I KNOW THAT THE

SEEDS YOU PLANTED WILL GROW INTO
FORESTS AND ONE DAY WE TOO WILL

BE TALL ENOUGH TO REACH THE
HEAVENS.

THANK YOU, CRITICS CHOICE.

THANK YOU, CHAD.

THANK YOU.

OTHER WINNERS INCLUDE BEST
ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY.

BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY.

BIG AWARD OF THE NIGHT TO COME

AND HERE'S
WHO'S PRESENTING IT.

THIS IS GAL GADOT AND I AM

THE BIGGEST STARS IN THE MOVIE

UNIVERSE AND WE GOT ONE.

HERE IS THE PRODUCER AND STAR OF
"WONDER WOMAN 1984",

IN A YEAR THAT SAW FILMS
FORCED FROM THEATERS,

THE NOMINEES FOR BEST PICTURE
WERE STILL ABLE

TO HAVE IMPACT ON US ALL.

THIS IS A TESTAMENT TO ALL THE
TALENT AND THE HIGH-QUALITY

WORKMANSHIP OF EVERYONE IN THIS
ROOM.

SO, NO MATTER WHAT NAME I READ,
YOU'RE ALL WINNERS.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE
NOMINEES FOR BEST PICTURE.

YOU MAY HAVE HEARD MGM HAS
MORE STARS THAN THERE ARE IN THE

HEAVENS.

DO NOT BELIEVE THIS.

WE ONLY HAVE ONE STAR, LEO THE
LION.

UM.

THE BOYS IN THE BAND.

WHAT BAND?

THE BAND WORKS FOR ME.

WHAT DID SHE SAY?

SHE SAYS SHE'S GOT NO HOME.

THIS CHILD IS AN ORPHAN TWICE
OVER.

AIN'T NOBODY ELSE UNDERSTAND
WHAT IT'S LIKE EXCEPT US.

THERE'S GOING TO BE A TARGET ON
YOUR BACK.

IT WAS GOING TO BE THERE
ANYWAY.

ONE OF THE THINGS I LOVE MOST
ABOUT THIS LIFE IS THAT THERE IS

NO FINAL GOODBYE.

WHY DO YOU SAY THAT?

I THOUGHT YOU WERE --
DRUNK?

REALLY DRUNK?

YEAH.

I'M NOT.

THIS MISSION WAS SO DAMN
IMPORTANT.

IT'S WHAT THE WAR IS ALL ABOUT.

I AM BEING DENIED RIGHT NOW
MY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.

REPRESENTATION.

WILL YOU BE QUIET!
