The Irishman extends Oscar race lead with 14 Critics Choice Awards nominations

Posted on

 

The Irishman continues to flex its gangster muscle on the awards circuit.

Martin Scorsese’s crime drama extends its lead over the precursor Oscar race with 14 nominations (including one among 10 total Best Picture nominees) from the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s Critics Choice Awards — often regarded as one of the most reliable Academy Awards foretellers in Hollywood.

Other Best Picture nominees include Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (which scored 12 noverall nods), Sam Mendes’ 1917 (eight nods), Greta Gerwig’s Little Women (nine nods), Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit (seven nods), Todd Phillips’ Joker (seven nods), James Mangold’s Ford v Ferrari, Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story (eight nods), Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite (seven nods), and the Safdie brothers’ Uncut Gems (four nods).

Outside of its placement on the AFI’s top 10 films of 2019 list earlier this week, Gerwig’s adaptation of Little Women made its first major impression on the awards race with the announcement of the Critics Choice Awards nominations, with notices for actors Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh, Gerwig’s direction and screenplay, and several of its crafts. Each of this year’s acting frontrunners — Marriage Story‘s Adam Driver, Judy’s Renée Zellweger, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood‘s Brad Pitt, and Hustlers‘ Jennifer Lopez — also landed nominations in their respective categories, as did standout contenders like Tom Hanks (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), Willem Dafoe (The Lighthouse), Awkwafina (The Farewell), Antonio Banderas (Pain and Glory), Eddie Murphy (Dolemite Is My Name), Adam Sandler (Uncut Gems), Robert De Niro (The Irishman), Joaquin Phoenix (Joker), Charlize Theron (Bombshell), Lupita Nyong’o (Us), Zhao Shuzhen (The Farewell), and Laura Dern (Marriage Story).

Since 2009, the Critics Choice Awards have predicted Oscar’s eventual Best Picture champion winner six times, while that number jumps to seven for Best Actor contenders and dips to six for the Best Actress contest. Though the BFCA’s membership is primarily journalist-focused and doesn’t include Academy crossover, the groups’ tastes usually dovetail with each other as the awards race progresses.

On the television side this year, Netflix’s Ava DuVernay-created limited series When They See Us leads with six nominations, followed by NBC’s This Is Us and Pop’s Schitt’s Creek, both of which received five nods. Overall, Netflix received 61 nominations across its film and television slate, with HBO trailing at 33 and Amazon coming in third with 14.

Read on for a full list of film and television nominees for the 2020 Critics Choice Awards.
