From Jameela Jamil to Emily Blunt, here’s every incredible moment from the 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards red carpet.
It’s official: awards season is in full swing.
Just one week after the 2019 Golden Globes, stars have flooded the red carpet for the prestigious 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards in California.
Taye Diggs, who is hosting the show at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, dressed up for the occasion in a navy coat and black trousers. John Krasinski, meanwhile, opted for a white tuxedo jacket with an open black shirt - a monochrome look which was echoed by none other than This Is Us’ Milo Ventimiglia. And, proving there’s more to life than a plain black tux, Timothée Chalamet donned a suit crafted from watercolour silk.
Elsewhere on the red (well, blue) carpet, Jameela Jamil channelled her Good Place alter-ego in a very Tahani-esque polka dot gown. Laura Dern dazzled in black sequins, Glenn Close opted for a satin suit jacket and pleated skirt, Gemma Chan struck a pose in a voluminous floral number, Michelle Yeoh selected a dramatic red one-shouldered gown, and Charlize Theron proved metallics are never going out of fashion. And, of course, white bridal-style gowns - so prevalent at this year’s Globes - continued to reign supreme, with the likes of Constance Wu, Lady Gaga, Mandy Moore, Emily Blunt and Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer all adding their own unique twist to the trend for the second major event of the awards show calendar.
Here are some of our favourite looks from the night so far (we will work to update this gallery throughout the night):
The 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards honours art from both the big and small screen. On the film side of things, The Favourite is making good on its name with a whopping 14 nominations: think Best Picture, Best Actress (Olivia Colman) and Best Supporting Actress (Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone).
Marvel’s Black Panther has the second-most nominations with a total of 12, First Man has 10 noms, while Mary Poppins Returns, A Star Is Born and Vice have a cool nine nominations each. Roma — named best picture of the year by the L.A. Film Critics Association on Sunday — has eight noms, while Green Book has seven. All of these films also will compete for Best Picture, along with BlacKkKlansman and If Beale Street Could Talk. Phew.
On the television side, meanwhile, The Americans, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and Escape at Dannemora have five nominations each.
The winners will be revealed later tonight at the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards gala. It is perhaps worth noting that organisers say that the Critics’ Choice Awards are historically the most accurate predictor of the Academy Award nominations.
Congratulations to all the nominees!
