Last night, the 26th Annual Critics Choice Awards was held remotely but still boasted plenty of stars and big wins.

Ahead of the Oscar nominations, Chloé Zhao is continuing her dominance of Best Director with Nomadland. Maria Bakalova and Carrie Mulligan held strong as frontrunners. Pajiba favorites Ted Lasso and Schitt’s Creek got lots of love. Regrettably, my enthusiasm for Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga was not shared by my fellow Critics Choice Association members.

Here’s the list of winners, plus links to Pajiba’s reviews! (Click through for bonus fun!)
