The 2019 Critics Choice Awards are less than a month away, and we already can name two people who’ll be walking away with shiny trophies at the end of the night. Claire Foy and Chuck Lorre are set to receive special recognitions at the upcoming ceremony.
The Crown actress had an amazing 2018, and CCA decided to honor her with the #SeeHer Award. This prize is presented to artists responsible for pushing boundaries and recognizing the importance of authentic portrayals of women across the entertainment landscape. The list of previous recipients includes Gal Gadot and Viola Davis.
Chuck Lorre, known for his work on The Big Bang Theory, Mom and The Kominsky Method, will receive the Critics’ Choice Creative Achievement Award. Joey Berlin, president of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, said this felt like the perfect time to honor him – just before The Big Bang Theory rides off into the sunset.
“For a quarter of a century Chuck has been keeping us in stitches with comedies of remarkable hilarity and consistency, delighting viewers and critics alike,” said Berlin.
