If you鈥檙e entering your office鈥檚 Oscar pool, this is the award show to pay attention to 鈥 in the past 15 years, 11 of the Critics鈥 Choice Awards Best Picture winners would go on to nab the same big prize at the Academy Awards. But beyond that, this particular Critics鈥 Choice Awards is unique because it marks the first time that both TV and film get recognized in the same ceremony. For one, this year鈥檚 Critics鈥 Choice Awards red carpet is actually a blue carpet 鈥 really lettin鈥 loose there! It also has a bit more of an inclusive, fun feel than other awards. Don鈥檛 just take OUR word for it. Do these stars not look like they鈥檙e having a blast getting ready? See for yourself, bb.
