'La La Land' leads the pack with 12 nominations for Critics' Choice Awards

The Broadcast Film Critics Assn. announced its film nominees for the 22nd Critics’ Choice Awards on Thursday, with whimsical Los Angeles love story “La La Land” landing 12 nominations. 

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone both garnered nominations for their performances in the film, as did Damien Chazelle for director and screenplay. 

“Arrival” and “Moonlight” scored a hefty 10 nominations each, including nods for picture and director.

Due to the inclusion of genre-specific categories, several actors managed multiple nominations, some for the exact same role.

Andrew Garfield, for example, is up for two acting awards for “Hacksaw Ridge” (actor and also actor in an action movie), as is Ryan Reynolds for “Deadpool” (actor in a comedy and actor in an action movie), Lucas Hedges for “Manchester by the Sea” (supporting actor and young actor/actress) and Hailee Steinfeld for “The Edge of Seventeen” (actress in a comedy and young actor/actress).

Others receiving multiple nominations include Denzel Washington, for acting in and directing “Fences,” and Gosling, who in addition to “La La Land” was nominated for actor in a comedy for “The Nice Guys.”

Kenneth Lonergan (“Manchester by the Sea”) and Barry Jenkins (“Moonlight”), like Chazelle, each received nominations for director and screenplay of their respective films. 

TV nominations for the Critics’ Choice Awards were previously announced on Nov. 14, with FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson” topping the nominations with six. 

The winners for both the TV and film categories will be revealed Dec. 11 at the Critics’ Choice Awards gala, broadcast on A&E and hosted by actor and comedian T.J. Miller.
