My picks for The 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards

I’m just going to quickly post my picks for tonight’s Critic’s Choice Awards. Sometimes this show is a lot easier to predict because (obviously) we know exactly what movies and shows they do and don’t like throughout the year. It’s their job to tell us!

TV, again, is not my strong suit…so don’t hold those against me (except Fargo should win every award on Earth). Alright, I’m jumping in. My picks will have stars around them.

Show starts at 5 tonight on A&E!
