La La Land - 2017 Critics Choice Awards

Awards season has officially begun, and we’re going to be hearing a lot about which movies are garnering accolades from various critics groups, guilds and eventually the Golden Globes and Academy Awards. The Independent Spirit Awards were first out of the gate with their nominations last week, and now the 2017 Critics Choice Awards nominations from the Broadcast Film Critics Association have arrived.

What’s fun about this particular line-up of nominees is that in addition to the usual powerful dramas that typically get nominated for awards, the BFCA also hands out awards for Best Action Movie, Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie and Best Comedy, and the latter category isn’t full of movies pretending to be comedies like at the Golden Globes.

BB-8 Critics Choice Awards

Last night, the Critics Choice Awards were televised live for the first time ever. While the event wasn’t quite as star-studded as the Golden Globes or the Oscars, the festivities were hosted by comedian and Cloverfield star T.J. Miller with some of his trademark wackiness, everyone seemed to be having a good time, and Mad Max: Fury Road took home a bunch of awards. But one special award was handed out to Industrial Light & Magic, and a special guest from Star Wars: The Force Awakens was on hand to help out.

The adorable BB-8 helped ILM’s chief creative officer John Knoll accept the Genius Award for everyone who has helped bring some of the most unbelievable creatures, settings and sights to life on the big screen. Check out the BB-8 Critics Choice Awards appearance after the jump! Read More »
