TV and film actor Taye Diggs returned to host the 25th annual Critics Choice Awards. Winners were from projects released theatrically as well as on OTT platforms. These included Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Irishman, Marriage Story, 1917, Watchmen and Succession.

Eddie Murphy was honoured with a lifetime achievement award, while Kristen Bell accepted the #SeeHer award for "push boundaries on changing stereotypes and acknowledge the importance of authentic portrayals of women across the entertainment landscape," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In her speech, the actress, who has voiced Anna in Frozen and Frozen 2 said, "My immediate reaction is always to answer with words like 'strong' and 'brave' and 'powerful,' but if I'm being honest, to me, being a woman is not about being brave or being strong or being powerful. It's not about being anything specific. It's just about giving yourself permission to be the things that you already are, which seems very easy, but it is not. Because women have been conditioned to fit into boxes; usually tiny, pretty, sparkly boxes with bows on the them."

There was a tie between Sam Mendes (1917) and Bong Joon-Ho (Parasite) for Best Director. Joaquin Phoenix won Best Actor (Joker) and Renee Zellweger was announced as Best Actress (Judy). In the TV category, the winners were Regina King (Watchmen), Bill Hader (Barry), Jharrel Jerome (When They See Us) and Michelle Williams (Fosse/Verdon).
