Critics’ Choice Awards 2018: My predictions and the winners

Awards season is finally underway now and it seems like there is an award show or event for nominees to attend every single day – and tonight is the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards, hosted by Olivia Munn.

The Critics Choice has many more categories than the Golden Globes so I’m gonna take a punt with my predictions on it for the first time ever.

There are so many categories that I decided to just stick to movies. This is also because while doing the Golden Globes predictions, I realised how behind I was on so many shows so was truly unable to give an informed opinion. Something I shall try to rectify next year! So I’m not bothering with them but let it be known I’m backing The Handmaid’s Tale and Elisabeth Moss, Big Little Lies and Feud: Bette and Joan.

Here are my movie predictions, and the winners are in bold:
