Would it be the Critics’ Choice Awards if there weren’t a dramatic tie? At the 25th annual Critics’ Choice Awards Sunday night, Bong Joon Ho and Sam Mendes tied for Best Director for their films Parasite and 1917. Parasite also took home Best Foreign Film. But the big movie of the night was Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which won Best Picture, Best Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor for Brad Pitt. Finally getting some love this awards season, Little Women won Greta Gerwig Best Adapted Screenplay. Over on the television side, Succession and Fleabag won the Best Drama and Comedy categories, respectively. When They See Us won for Best Limited Series. Eddie Murphy was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award, presented to him by his Dolemite Is My Name co-star Keegan-Michael Key.
