The 2022 Critics Choice Awards

   The Critics Choice Association announced its 27th annual awards Sunday (March 13), thus upping the odds that The Power of the Dog -- winner of the Association's best picture -- will nab a best-picture Oscar in two weeks. 
   The Power of the Dog also won best director (Jane Campion), best adapted screenplay, and best cinematography.
   The winners of the CCA's awards, it should be pointed out, often serve as bellwethers for Oscar. It's also worth noting that the CCA awards include categories (best ensemble and best comedy, for example) that you won't find on Oscar's list.
   I should also point out that I'm a member of the Critics Choice Association (movies, not TV). 
   Here's a list of all the movie winners. Winners are listed in bold. Other nominees follow.
