Critics Choice Movie Awards nominations: Complete list of contenders

The 2023 Critics Choice Awards film nominations announced this morning found “Everything Everywhere All at Once” from A24 picking up more awards season steam in topping the list with 14 nominations, while Steven Spielberg‘s semi-autobiographical “The Fabelmans” snared 11 noms and “Babylon,” Damien Chazelle‘s wild, lascivious epic about Hollywood in the 1920s and ’30s, tallied 10 bids. “The Banshees of Inisherin” was next with nine, followed by “Elvis” and “Tár” with seven apiece and a handful of films — “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Women Talking” — hauling in six each.

All of the above movies are also nominated for Best Picture save for “Black Panther.” In a break from tradition, there are 11 Best Picture nominees in all, with the India blockbuster “RRR” also cracking the list. Each one of the titles except for “Glass Onion” (12th) and “RRR” (15th) are on our predicted Top 11 nominees for Best Picture at the Oscars. All except “RRR” (15th) were on our predicted Top 11 for Best Picture at Critics Choice. One that we had on both lists that Critics Choice voters passed over was “The Woman King” in 10th.

Critics Choice voters really piled on the numbers this time, going not only for 11 Best Picture nominees but also 11 names (including both Daniels) in the Best Director category — nominating among them “Woman King” helmer Gina Prince-Bythewood but not her film — and six contenders in all four lead and supporting acting races as well as in Best Young Actor/Actress and Best Acting Ensemble. Too, there were a half-dozen nominees each in Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, Editing, Best Costume Design, Best Hair and Makeup, Best Visual Effects, Best Comedy, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Song and Best Score.

Everything Everywhere All at Once” was nominated for both picture and comedy, as was “Banshees of Inisherin” and “Glass Onion,” while “RRR” was singled out for foreign-language film as well as picture. “Everything Everywhere,” “Fabelmans” and “Banshees” all had four members of their casts nominated as well as Best Acting Ensemble, with “The Fabelmans'” young Gabriel LaBelle singled out on the Best Young Actor/Actress list.

Winners of the 2023 Critics Choice Awards for both film and television will be revealed on January 15 during a live telecast at 7 p.m. ET (delayed PT) on The CW from the Fairmont Century Plaza and hosted by Chelsea Handler. This is two days before Oscar nomination voting concludes. That Oscar lineup will be announced on January 24, with the 95th Academy Awards handed out on March 12 in a telecast on ABC.

The Critics Choice Awards are chosen by the more than 600 television, radio and online critics and entertainment journalists who make up the Critics Choice Association (CCA). It was established in 2019 with the merger of the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, recognizing the blurring of the distinction between film, television and streaming content. (The CCA TV awards will also be handed out on January 15, with “Abbott Elementary” pacing the field with six bids.
