2023 Critics Choice Awards winners list: ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ leads the way with 5 wins

The biggest night of the year for critics ended with “Everything Everywhere All At Once.” The beloved multiverse movie that almost defies genre classification won five awards, including Best Picture, Best Director for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, Best Original Screenplay for the Daniels, Best Editing, and Best Supporting Actor for Ke Huy Quan.

That “Everything Everywhere” would dominate the show was far from a surprise: the movie led all features with 14 nominations, including four acting citations for Quan, Michelle Yeoh (who lost Best Actress to Cate Blanchett for “TAR”), and Stephanie Hsu and Jamie Lee Curtis (who both lost in the Best Supporting Actress to Angela Bassett for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”). The other acting winner was Brendan Fraser for “The Whale,” a victory that could springboard him to an eventual Oscar win.

In fact, historically, the Critics Choice Awards and Oscars match winners’ results roughly 70 percent of the time. Last year, the more than 500 members in the group correctly anticipated Oscar wins in all four acting categories (Will SmithJessica ChastainTroy Kotsur, and Ariana DeBose) and Best Director (Jane Campion). But the group missed Best Picture, which was awarded to “The Power of the Dog” at the Critics Choice Awards but eventually went to “CODA” at the Academy Awards. Over the group’s 27-year history heading into Sunday night, the Critics Choice Awards have previewed 15 Best Picture Oscar winners as well presaged 22 Best Director, 18 Best Actor, 15 Best Actress, 17 Supporting Actor, and 19 Supporting Actress wins. That spells good news for the winners here on Sunday night.

The Critics Choice Awards are voted on by “broadcast, radio, and online critics as well as entertainment journalists who review films and documentaries as well as scripted and unscripted television.”

It wasn’t just a night for “Everything Everywhere All At Once,” however. On the television side, “Abbott Elementary” won two awards, including Best Comedy Series, “The Dropout” won two awards, including Best Limited Series, and “Better Call Saul” won three awards, including Best Drama Series.
