While a lot of people have started to look to the Golden Globes as being the best guess for what to expect from the Oscars, with some people even considering the Golden Globes to be bigger than the Oscars, it is actually the Critics Choice Awards which gives us the best idea of what the Academy Awards will bring us.
This years Critics Choice Awards takes place later this week and there are a lot of big names and movies looking to win big this year. The recent Golden Globes saw a wide mix of winners from a number of different movies and, while many expect the Critics Choice Awards to follow suit, there are a few films that could dominate the event.
There have been some fantastic films nominated this year, with some great performances along the way. However, there is a possibility that one of the movies, from the likes of American Hustle, 12 Years a Slave and Gravity, could make the night their own and be the big winners of the evening.
During its 18 year history, the Critics Choice Awards has given us a lot of Oscar winners including 12 Best Picture, 12 Best Actor, 10 Best Actress, 11 Supporting Actress and nine Supporting Actor winners. So, following this years Critics Choice Awards, we should get a good Oscars idea.
The 19th Annual Critics Choice Awards takes place on January 16.
