The 2000 Critics Consensus Award Winners


Catherine Zeta-Jones in Traffic

Follow the 2000 Critics Consensus Awards from the bottom of this post upwards, and it seems obvious: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon has it in the bag. Alas, it does not, as Steven Soderbergh's Traffic sneaks in a Best Picture win, despite losing all of its nominations bar Benicio del Toro in Supporting Actor. These are, after a couple of years of major divergence from Oscar, actually fairly conservative picks from the critics, hewing largely to Oscar nominees and predictable favourites, but they're also largely worthy winners. Of note: Frances McDormand here joins Meryl Streep as the CCA's most honoured actress to date, with her third win. The 2000 nominees are here, and the winners below.
