Oppenheimer is continuing its domination of this year’s awards season, following the 2024 Critics’ Choice Awards.

Following its success at last week’s Golden Globes, Christopher Nolan’s epic historical thriller came away with an impressive eight awards at the Critics’ Choice Awards, more than any other film or TV show.

These included individual wins for Christopher Nolan and Robert Downey Jr, as well as a Best Picture win.

However, leading man Cillian Murphy was pipped to Best Actor by Paul Giamatti, whose film The Holdovers also picked up Best Supporting Actress for Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Best Young Actor for Dominic Sessa.

Meanwhile, Barbie picked up six of the 18 awards it was nominated for, including Best Original Song for I’m Just Ken and Best Original Screenplay for filmmakers Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach.

Over in the TV categories, The Bear and Beef each came away with four awards, while Succession was just behind on three.
