The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) and Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) announced the winners for the 23rd Annual Critics Choice Awards at a ceremony hosted by actor and comedian Olivia Munn. The awards show was broadcast on TBS last night.

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water won Best Picture and Director in the film category, while Martin McDonagh’s Golden Globe-winning Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri won Best Ensemble as well as acting wins for Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell.

In the TV category, The Handmaiden’s Tale and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won Best Drama and Comedy, respectively, but it was the HBO limited series Big Little Lies which scored the most Critics Choice wins in the television categories, taking three of the acting categories for limited series. Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgard each won their category.

Other than The Shape of Water winning Best Picture and Ted Danson winning for the comedy The Good Place — he wasn’t nominated for the Globes — last night was almost an exact repeat of the Golden Globes on Sunday, helping to solidify the Oscar chances for Rockwell and Allison Janney for I, Tonya. (Margot Robbie won for Actress in a Comedy, despite being ignored in that category at the Globes in favor of Lady Bird‘s Saoirse Ronan.)

In fact, despite receiving numerous nominations and being one of the best-reviewed films of last year, Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird was completely shut-out at the Critics Choice awards, and it has to fare better at the SAG and WGA awards if it has any Oscar chances.

The BFCA — which the Tracking Board’s East Coast Editor is a member of — is made up of 332 television, radio and online film critics. Founded in 1995, it’s the largest film critics group in North America, and unlike other film critics groups, their tastes tend to be more populist as well as more in line with the Oscars/Emmys.

The BFJA is made up of 93 television journalists from broadcast and online outlets, the group being founded in 2011. While it used to have its own separate awards show, the two groups combined efforts into the annual Critics Choice Awards similar to the Golden Globes a few years back
