Everything Everywhere All at Once and Abbott Elementary were the big winners at Critics Choice Awards. Hosted by Chelsea Handler, who is known for her bold and off-color humor, and made jokes about Viola Davis discovering she was Nick Cannon's daughter after a DNA test and James Corden's recent restaurant controversy, the ceremony saw frontrunners including Angela Bassett and Brendan Fraser cement their status.

The ceremony, which is in its 28th year, is held at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles, and is a good indicator of what films to expect to pop up on the Oscars nominations list later in the month.

Black Panther star Angela has been sweeping the awards season so far for her heartbreaking portrayal of the grieving Queen Ramonda in the Marvel sequel, Wakanda Forever, and she once again picked up the best supporting actress award, thanking the black actresses who came before her.

Everything Everywhere All at Once picked up the coveted best picture prize, as well as statues for directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, and Ke Huy Quan who received the best supporting actor award.
