‘Oppenheimer’ Wins Best Picture & Director At Critics Choice Awards, Leads Field With Eight; ‘Barbie’ Gets Six Including Best Comedy – Full List

Oppenheimer cemented its awards-season front-runner status with a leading eight Critics Choice Awards including Best Picture and Best Director for Christopher Nolan tonight in Santa Monica. It indeed was the Barbenheimer Show at the CCAs, with summer rival Barbie finishing second with six wins including Best Comedy. See the full list below.

Emma Stone turned in the biggest film upset of the night by taking Best Actress for Searchlight’s Poor Things, after Lily Gladstone won at the Golden Globes last week. Stone won her Globe for Comedy, but the CCAs don’t have separate comedy and drama categories. But Paul Giamatti won Best Actor for Focus Features’ The Holdovers, repeating his Globes win.

The Oppenheimer haul also included Best Acting Ensemble, Visual Effects, Editing, Cinematography and Score. Its Robert Downey Jr followed up his Golden Globe win for Supporting Actor, and Da’Vine Joy Randolph of The Holdovers did the same for Supporting Actress.

Barbie, the No. 1 film of 2023, also won for Original Screenplay, Production Design, Costume Design, Hair and Makeup and Best Song for “I’m Just Ken.” Speaking to writer-director Greta Gerwig from the stage, songwriter Mark Ronson said, “The fact that you carved out 11 minutes for this prog rock power ballad dream ballet shredfest so that the boys could cry and hold hands a little too, we are really forever in your debt for that.”
