Does the Black Panther's Critics Choice Loss Mean They'll Lose the Oscars?

Here are all the winners and losers at the 2019 "The Critics’ Choice Awards".

Black Panther was nominated for an incredible 11 awards including "Best Picture" but snagged three: "Best Costume Design," "Best Production Design," and "Best Visual Effects." It lost several key awards like "Best Picture". Is this cause for concern? No, but it does bring up some concerns.

The Critics’ Choice Awards are known as a pretty good indicator of the Oscars. Over its 23-year history the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. (BFCA) have previewed 14 Best Picture Oscar winners as well as 18 Best Director, 16 Best Actor, 13 Best Actress, 13 Supporting Actor and 16 Supporting Actress wins.

While the Critic's Choice Awards don't directly predict an Academy Award win or loss, it can affect the voting. Why?

The main reason is seeing a movie win or lose can influence someone on the fence to vote for a movie. It can also determine if a movie is even watched by an Academy Award member. The members get a ton of preview copies of movies, known as "screeners", and can't watch every movie on the list. But a win can move someone, who hasn't seen the movie, to give it a watch.

A big reason the Critic's Choice win probably won't change much is that the winners are announced right before the votes are collected. The Academy nominations start January 7, 2019, and the votes end January 14, 2019. So, it won't change if a movie is nominated, but it may influence the members to vote on a win.

A better indicator are the industry awards. These not only line up well with the Oscars but can also influence the members that work in the respective fields. The BFCA probably doesn't have anyone in the industry voting for Critics Choice awards but the Oscars do.

For example, if a movie like Black Panther wins costume awards (Ruth Carter has been nominated for a Costume Designers Guild Award) they may be more likely to vote that way. So we'll see.

For now here are the genre winners at the 24th Annual Critics' Choice Awards.

Marvel was fighting against itself in two categories as both Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther were nominated for "Best Visual Effects" and "Best Action Movie". Infinity War didn't win anything this round.

Deadpool 2 was nominated for "Best Comedy" and "Best Actor in a Comedy" but lost to Crazy Rich Asians and Christian Bale respectively. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse deservedly won "Best Animated Feature", while Annihilation lost out to A Quiet Place for "Best Sci-Fi or Horror Movie". Thandie Newton picked up an award for HBO's Westworld.

Some actors who played in past genre films nabbed wins. Christian Bale played Batman in the Nolan films and won the big "Best Actor" award for ViceMahershala Ali, who plays Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes in Luke Cage, won "Best Supporting Actor" for Green Book. Regina King, who was in the 1998 Mighty Joe Young remake and several episodes of The Big Bang Theory won "Best Supporting Actress" for If Beale Street Could Talk. Amy Adams, who plays Lois Lane in the DCEU, shared an award for "Best Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Made for Television" with Patricia Arquette.

Here's the complete list of nominees and winners for the 24th annual Critic's Choice Awards for 2019.
