Robbie scores Oscar boost from Critics

January 12, 2018

Margot Robbie Ha won the Critics' Choice award for best actress in a comedy for I, Tonya.

The 23rd annual Critics' Choice Awards are underway with Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water leading the nominations on the film side with 14, while FX's Feud: Bette and Joan on top for television with six nods.

Australian Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman are in the running for gongs at the ceremony in Los Angeles as awards season kicks on in Hollywood.

A number of awards have already been unceremoniously presented off the telecast, relegated to a streamed pre-show -- a full third of them, in fact.

Call Me by Your Name and Get Out claimed film screenplay honours, the latter winning best sci-fi/horror film as well.

Coco also won a pair of awards, for song and animated feature, while The Florida Project star Brooklynn Prince won the best young actor/actress award.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri took the ensemble trophy and Golden Globe winner In the Fade won the foreign film prize.

The Disaster Artist won Best Comedy and its star James Franco also won an award, for best actor in a comedy but wasn't in attendance, possibly taking a back seat after accusations of sexual misconduct.

For television, Walton Goggins and Mayim Bialik won the supporting actor and actress prizes for Vice Principals and The Big Bang Theory, while HBO's The Wizard of Lies won best movie made for TV.

David Harbour won best supporting actor in a drama series for Stranger Things, while Ann Dowd won the drama supporting actress award for The Handmaid's Tale, which also picked up Best Series.

Supporting honours for TV movie or miniseries went to Alexander Skarsgard and Laura Dern, for Big Little Lies - based on a book by Australian author Liane Moriarty.
