19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Winners List

19th Annual Critics' Choice Awards Nominees Announced

The 2014 Critics’ Choice Awards winners were announced this past week, live on the CW hosted by the very dry Aisha Tyler. Despite a few differential views from the Broadcast Film Critics Association, there were many similar winners the Hollywood Foreign Press Association chose at the Golden Globe Awards last weekend. While hosting a more unconventional slew of awards categories, the 19th Critics Choice Awards bring us one step closer to the Oscars. See the full list of winners after the break.

Because most critics can never agree on a singular answer, they decided to make their own awards show with an over abundance of genre categories. This bevy of awards seems like overkill and more like an MTV Movie Awards ceremony. As much as it’s nice to see horror celebrated as its own category – paired with sci-fi – awards shows should be more about the best of the best of the best; that’s why we have the Scream Awards. There’s no need for us or the celebrities to sit through an additional hour of who wins Best Action, Best Comedy, Best Horror, etc. just because a group of people need to recognize everyone. Critics, I tell ya.

And the winners are…
