Over in the television categories, The Morning Show led the nominations with six, and Succession followed with five nods to its name.

With a few surprises along the way, the overall tally of the 2024 Critics Choice Award winners is similar to last week’s Golden Globes, in that Oppenheimer and Succession dominated the wins.

Oppenheimer took home eight wins, including Best Picture, Best Director for Christopher Nolan, Best Acting Ensemble, and Best Supporting Actor for Robert Downey Jr. Meanwhile, Succession scored Best Drama Series, as well as acting wins for Kieran Culkin and Australia’s Sarah Snook.

Some of the notable surprises of the evening were Paul Giamatti beating out Cillian Murphy for Best Actor, Emma Stone beating Lily Gladstone for Best Actress, and “I’m Just Ken” from the Barbie soundtrack winning over Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made for?”.
