Los Angeles: The drama Spotlight and the action film Mad Max: Fury Road were among the winners late Sunday at the Critics' Choice Award, an event that attracted Hollywood glitterati in their droves.
Like the January 10 Golden Globes, the Critics' Choice - hosted by film and television critics - handed out prizes for accomplishments on the big and small screen.
Both the Golden Globes and the Critics' Choice Awards are seen as a possible guide to what may happen at the Oscars ceremony in late February. (Also Read: Golden Globes: Top 10 Moments, Starring Leonardo, Stallone and Brad Pitt)
