Black Panther picked up 12 nominations including best picture, best-supporting actor (Michael B. Jordan), best-acting ensemble, and best-adapted screenplay and best hair and makeup.
Fans were disappointed that Black Panther didn’t win any of the Golden Globes the movie and cast were nominated for. With great hopes for Oscar nominations for Black Panther, many are carefully watching other award shows, like the Critics’ Choice Awards hoping for some wins.
First Man has ten nominations and Emily Blunt’s Mary Poppins Returns joins Vice and A Star is Born with nine Critics’ Choice nominations each.
Actress Amy Adams has a nomination in television for Sharp Objects and another for the movie Vice. Amy Adams currently has five Oscar nominations without any wins. Fans are hoping this will be a great year for Amy and many have voiced opinions they hope she takes home the Critics’ Choice Award then grabs an Academy Award nomination and win.
The Critics’ Choice Awards will start at 7 p.m. ET and runs until 10 p.m. live on the CW, January 13, 2019.
