Critics Choice Awards La la land this is usIs anyone else as crazy as I am over This is Us and LaLa Land? We’ll find out whether my critic colleagues are or not on Sunday, at the 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, which air December 11 at 8PM ET/ 5PM PT. I’ve got my Halston Heritage black and white penguin gown (it’s sexier than it sounds) all set to go, and will be sitting at one of the most star studded tables in Barker Hanger, so you just might see me in the audience.

You will definitely see the stars from your favorite movies and TV shows. As you may or may not recall, “La La Land” leads all films selected with 12 nominations including Best Picture, Ryan Gosling for Best Actor, Emma Stone for Best Actress, Damien Chazelle for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. So you’re guaranteed a major dose of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, who is also nominated for Best Actor in a Comedy, The Nice Guys.  For the rest of the film nominees, click here.

This is Us posterI know that many of you haven’t seen some of the films nominated yet, but the TV shows, that’s a different story. Who out there hasn’t seen, and loved, “This is Us” yet?
