The American-Canadian Critics Choice Association unveiled the Red Carpet on Sunday night to celebrate the top performers and productions in Hollywood for the previous year, compiling the opinions of cinema and television enthusiasts after the Golden Globes last week.

The event was place in Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport in Los Angeles, and actress-comedian Chelsea Handler hosted it for the second year in a row.

The highly successful summer films Barbie and Oppenheimer, together with the comedy-drama Succession on HBO and the limited series Beef on Netflix that was inspired by road rage, all proceeded to receive several awards.
