The 2023 Critics' Choice Awards have arrived - and with it, Hollywood's A-listers. Angela Bassett, Kaley Cuoco and more all walked the red carpet at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel. The 28th annual ceremony, held at Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday, saw some seriously stunning sartorial displays, from Kate Hudson's shimmering Oscar De La Renta gown to Kerry Washington's embroidered corset number.

One star who wasn't in attendance, however, was Jamie Lee Curtis. The Everything Everywhere All At Once actress revealed on Saturday that she had been forced to pull out of appearing after testing positive for COVID-19 – just days after wowing audiences with her glamorous transformation at the Golden Globes - but she made sure to FaceTime in to her cast after EEAAO won best picture.
