The Critics Choice Awards are upon us, and among the nominations that were led by Little Women, The Irishman, and Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, was Rian Johnson’s hilarious and smart murder/mystery whodunnit Knives Out.
Knives Out was nominated for three awards, Best Comedy, Best Acting Ensemble, and Best Original Screenplay, all of which are wholeheartedly deserved. You can see the full list of nominations here.
Starring Daniel Craig, Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, Katherine Langford, Jaedan Martell, Lakeith Stanfield, and Christopher Plummer, an award for Best Acting Ensemble is certainly not out of reach. Nor is Best Original Script or Best Comedy with Johnson’s intelligent and witty mystery and the perfectly timed and placed comedy aided by the phenomenal cast (particularly Daniel Craig).
Knives Out is currently playing in theaters. You can read our review the film here.
