Yet for the Critics' Choice Awards, the next major awards show of the season, white was clearly the colour of the night.

Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell, who were both absent from the event, were announced as Best Actress and Supporting Actor in a Movie for their performances in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
