Almost 1,800 people worldwide predicted these film winners for 19 categories chosen by the Broadcast Film Critics Association. The ceremony was live in Santa Monica and was hosted by Taye Diggs on CW.
Our top scorer had 17 of the 19 categories correct. In fact her only misses were for Best Original Screenplay (choosing “The Favourite” over “First Reformed”) and Best Score (choosing “If Beale Street Could Talk” over “First Man”).
