SS Rajamouli’s RRR picked up two wins at the Critics Choice Awards – Best Song and Best Foreign Film. The Critics Choice Awards, unlike the other awards in Hollywood, are directly based on the votes of the film critics who voted for these films. RRR’s wins at the CCA are seen as a very important victory for the film in its race to the Oscars.
WHAT DO RRR WINS AT CRITICS CHOICE AWARDS MEAN?
If you look at the history of wins at the Critics Choice Awards, then it’s evident that those who took home a trophy at the event have a 70 per cent chance of duplicating their win at The Oscars. These are the statistics of CCA ratio to the Academy Award wins in the past.
In the 27-year history of the Critics Choice Awards, the show has predicted 22 Best Director, 15 Best Actress and 17 Best Actor wins. It has also favoured odds for the Best Picture category almost 15 times. This means that the Best Song category win for RRR at the Oscars is almost a final lock.
