The stars were out in full force Sunday night for the 21st annual Critics’ Choice Awards at Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar in Los Angeles. The 2016 run of the show marks the first year of combining accolades for both film and television, explaining the larger-than-usual fashionable turnout across both industries.
Much like the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice Awards are also a more casual, spirited gathering, where stars rub elbows and toast flutes of bubbly throughout the evening. It made the perfect backdrop for host T.J. Miller, one of the stars of HBO’s Silicon Valley, to showcase his brand of off-beat humor, kicking off the show with an opening monologue maneuvering four dancing puppets (above).
From Amy Schumer’s self-deprecating acceptance speech to Mad Max: Fury Road’s domination, the night was not without its share of memorable moments. Below, 6 more highlights from the evening.
