'Argentina, 1985' lost at the Critic's Choice Awards, but does what left the ceremony predict the Oscars?


It swept 'Everything Everywhere at the Same Time', while 'The Fabelmans' and 'The Spirits of the Island', winners of the Golden Globe, lost.

As we reported last night,

Argentina, 1985

could not repeat what happened at the Golden Globes, and it was the Indian production


that won the category of best international film.

The big winner was

Everything Everywhere at the Same Time

, which took 5 awards at the 28th Critic's Choice Awards.

In any case, the chances of Santiago Mitre's film, with Ricardo Darín and Peter Lanzani, of being among the five nominees for the Oscar for best international film remain intact.

And RRR is not in its way, since strangely India did not send this film to the Hollywood Academy, but

Last Film Show

to compete in that category.

As much as they repeated the same group that went to the Golden Globes (Mitre, Darín, Lanzani, the producers Victoria Alonso, Axel Kuschevatzky, Agustina Llambi Campbell and Cindy Teperman, Florencia Bas - Darín's wife - and Dolores Fonzi - Miter's partner -, this time the result was not the same.

These awards are given by the Critics Association of the United States and Canada (CCA), which has more than 600 journalists specialized in the entertainment sector and, after the industry boycott of the Globe Gold at 222, it looked like it would establish itself as the top Critics' award in the United States. 

That remains to be seen.


we also have to wait for the rating index


For the moment, they differed from the Globes in that the film created by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert -known as "Los Daniels"-, which came as the most nominated with 14 nominations, won the corresponding best film, best director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing or Editing and Best Supporting Actor for Ke Huy Quan.

As we said at the beginning, the big disappointments of the night were

The Fabelmans -Steven

 Spielberg's autobiographical drama- and

The Spirits of the Island

, which had won the

Golden Globes

 for best dramatic and comedy film or musical comedy, and started as favorites along with

 Everything Everywhere at the same time


Spielberg's film, which opens in Argentina on Thursday, January 26, had to settle only for the best young actor award for Canadian Gabriel LaBelle.

Worse was the Martin McDonagh film, since

The Spirits of the Island

was not even chosen for any of the 9 categories to which it had been nominated.

For its part,

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

, by Rian Johnson, surprisingly won the Best Comedy Film and Best Cast categories.

The gala was hosted by American actress and writer Chelsea Handler and took place at the Fairmont Century Plaza hotel in Los Angeles, which also usually hosts other film awards, such as the Actors Guild Awards (SAG Awards in English).

Perhaps the most emotional moment was when Brendan Fraser, for 

The Whale

 (The Whale) could not hold back his tears and began to cry on stage.

In Darren Aronofsky's film, he plays an overweight man who cannot leave his home.

Fraser did come out of the ostracism of the Hollywood industry, after overcoming a depression.

The Australian Cate Blanchett (
