2018 Critics Choice Awards reactions to winners (and losers): Forum posters cheer for ‘The Shape of Water,’ jeer ‘Lady Bird’ losses

Another night, another awards show in Hollywood. As the Critic’s Choice Awards unfolded in Santa Monica, California, our forum posters let rip with their cheers and jeers. They were most excited for the wins by “The Shape of Water,” including in Best Picture and Best Director (Guillermo del Toro), and most upset by the complete shut out of “Lady Bird.”

Below is just a sampling of what was dished in the forums during the telecast, broadcast on the CW network and hosted by Olivia Munn. Take a look, then dive in if you dare:

BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: JORDAN PEELE, “GET OUT”

LangeWeaver2: Thank goodness. At least one group got it right. And with how many times it’s won screenplay with the regional groups, it would have frankly been an injustice to not win tonight.

BEST TV DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTRESS: ANN DOWD, “THE HANDMAID’S TALE”

EmmyWinner: Yes, bitches!

BEST TV DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTOR: DAVID HARBOUR, “STRANGER THINGS”

aahoto: I was rooting for Michael McKean so hard. Such a travesty he has barely received any recognition for his amazing work on “Better Call Saul.”

BEST COMEDY: “THE BIG SICK”

Sagand: These guys do not seem to be fans of Lady Bird.

BEST TV DRAMA ACTRESS: ELISABETH MOSS, “THE HANDMAID’S TALE”

Lord Freddy Blackfyre: Tatiana Maslany was robbed.

BEST TV COMEDY ACTRESS: RACHEL BROSNAHAN, “THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL”

Guest2014: This is so much horseshit. On Kristen Bell’s WORST day, she is miles better than Rachel forking Brosnahan.

BEST DRAMA SERIES: “THE HANDMAID’S TALE”

Ivo Stoyanov: Yes, I want to see The Handmaid’s Tale winning every single award and it seems my wish is going to be granted very soon.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: SAM ROCKWELL, “THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI”

pulp50: I think Dafoe and Metcalf are probably losing the Oscar now. I really wanted Dafoe to win just so The Florida Project could win something.

Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1): Honestly the prospect of Sam Rockwell being an Oscar winner makes me excited. The same goes for Janney.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: ALLISON JANNEY, “I, TONYA”

heyoranges: oh man, Metcalf is done 🙁

unbb24: Allison Janney’s path to Oscar is getting clearer. If she wins SAG, Metcalf is done. I also think the BAFTA will go to Allison Janney.

BEST ACTION MOVIE: “WONDER WOMAN”

bellattrice: I just turn on the TV to watch Wonder Woman win over Baby Driver, Planet of the Apes and Logan? *turns off TV*

Guest2014: Wonder Woman winning. Gotta take your moral victories where you can get ’em.

BEST DIRECTOR: GUILLERMO DEL TORO, “THE SHAPE OF WATER”

sitizoner: Go get that Oscar del Toro!

EmmyWinner: So happy for del Toro!

unbb24: As much as I want Nolan to finally win, I honestly want del Toro to win because he did a great job on directing The Shape of Water and so all the Three Amigos finally has Oscars.

BEST ACTOR: GARY OLDMAN, “DARKEST HOUR”

unbb24: Gary Oldman’s autograph sending to the voters worked. I hate to say this but I’m losing confidence on Timothee Chalamet now. Ugh.

BEST ACTRESS: FRANCES MCDORMAND, “THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI”

TVFan365: “Frances couldn’t be here tonight as she is renting three billboards outside Sunset Boulevard to help her win the Oscar.” – Chris Hemsworth

unbb24: Frances McDormand will definitely get the SAG and most likely BAFTA as well. I can now say that she is a lock for Oscar Best Actress.

BEST PICTURE: “THE SHAPE OF WATER”

Hunter-ish: Shocker!!! The Shape of Water!!

Keth: The Shape Shocks! Just wow… didn’t see that coming.

pulp50: Shape of Water, thank God.

EmmyWinner: YES YES YES YES
