After the Golden Globe Awards, the film and television industry awards parade in Hollywood was continued by the Critics Choice Awards. Which held its peak event in Los Angeles on Sunday (7/3) evening local time.
Like the Emmy Awards and Golden Globes, because it is still in the period of the Covid-19 pandemic, this year's Critics Choice Awards was also held with a hybrid concept. Host Taye Diggs and presenters appear live from the stage. Meanwhile, the artists, who are nominated, participate in the program virtually from their respective homes.
And, as a result, for the film category, Nomadland (2020) was again victorious. Repeating his success at the previous Golden Globes event. The film by Chloe Zhao has been named Best Picture at the 26th Annual Critics Choice Awards 2021.
Apart from being the Best Film, Nomadland also returned to deliver Chloe Zhao as Best Director. Which, again, repeated his success in the previous Golden Globes. In total, in this year's Critics Choice Awards, the film, starring Frances McDormand, won four trophies.

The victory as Best Young Actor at this year's Critics Choice Awards is very meaningful for Alan Kim. Because it is the first victory in his career. Who is still as old as corn. Perhaps, that was what caused him to cry when he delivered his victory speech.
Meanwhile, for the adult actor category, the late Chadwick Boseman was named Best Actor at the 26th Critics Choice Awards. Which repeated its success in the past Golden Globes. His wife, Simone Ledward, returned to represent the deceased to deliver a victory speech and receive the trophy.
Apart from Chadwick Boseman, the black actor who also won the Critics Choice Awards this year is Daniel Kaluuya. Who won the Best Supporting Actor title through the film Judas and the Black Messiah (2021). Repeating his success in the past Golden Globes.
Many say, the results of this year's Critics Choice Awards are a kind of a repeat of the previous Golden Globes. Because many winners are the same. However, for the actress category, the results were different.
Carey Mulligan, who defeated Andra Day in the last Golden Globes, was named Best Actress at this year's Critics Choice Awards. Thanks to his promising performance in the film Promising Young Woman (2020).
Besides Carey Mulligan, the actress who lost in the previous Golden Globes but won at the Critics Choice Awards this year is Maria Bakalova. Who was named Best Supporting Actress. Thanks to his natural acting in the film Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020).
In this satirical comedy film, Maria Bakalova plays the daughter of Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen) named Tutar Sagdiyev. One of his controversial scenes was when he pranked Donald Trump's politician, Rudy Giuliani, in a hotel room.
Maria Bakalova's victory, you could say, was extraordinary. As an unknown newcomer actress, she managed to surprise her by defeating the other, more famous nominees. Among them, Glenn Close and Amanda Seyfried.
Therefore, when delivering her victory speech, Maria Bakalova seemed very emotional. The Bulgarian actress did not believe that could really happen. Just being able to be nominated is amazing for this 24 year old girl. His success in this year's Critics Choice Awards is also a clear proof that dreams are worth pursuing.
However, unfortunately, Maria Bakalova's victory was not followed by her co-star: Sacha Baron Cohen. The Borat actor was not nominated. In fact, in the previous Golden Globes, he was named Best Comedy / Musical Actor.
However, even so, in fact, Sacha Baron Cohen did not fail terribly at this year's Critics Choice Awards. Because another film he starred in, The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020), was voted Best Acting Ensemble.
In his victory speech, Sacha Baron Cohen thanked the film casts who were based on this true story. In addition, he also conveyed the message that history tends to repeat itself if people are unable to take lessons from it.
Meanwhile, for the television category, like the previous Golden Globes, this year's Critics Choice Awards is also dominated by Netflix's The Crown (2016). Who managed to bring home four trophies. Among them are the Best Drama Series.
Apart from The Crown, what has also been successful is the sarcastic comedy series Ted Lasso (2020) from Apple TV +. Who managed to steal three trophies. Among these are the Best Actor in a Comedy Series. Through Jason Sudeikis.
