The Winners of the 27th Annual Critics' Choice Awards for Film


The Broadcast Film Critics Association has just finished handing out their Critics' Choice Awards for 2021, and, once again, it comes as no surprise to find Jane Campion's "The Power of the Dog" taking the top prize. The film also won Best Director (Campion), Best Adapted Screenplay (Campion), and Best Cinematography (Ari Wegner). "Belfast" and "Dune" followed right behind with three wins each.


There's now only one more stop in this awards season before the big Oscar finale, and that's the Producers Guild of America Awards on Saturday, where we'll either get final confirmation of the front-runner status of "The Power of the Dog," or we'll get a last-minute challenge to its standing. Be sure to check back then to see how it plays out.
