Congratulations Michael!

The 31-year-old will pick up his hardware at the fest on Feb. 7.

Michael B. Jordan, who won raves in 2018 for his work as a supporting actor in Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther and the lead actor in Steven Caple Jr.’s Creed 2 (and a Critics’ Choice nom for the former on Monday), will receive the Cinema Vanguard Award at the 2019 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the fest announced this week.

The 31-year-old, whose prior credits include Coogler’s Fruitvale Station (2013) and Creed (2015) as well as the game-changing TV series The Wire (2002) and Friday Night Lights (2009-11), will be honored Feb. 7 at Santa Barbara’s historic Arlington Theatre as part of the festival’s 34th edition, which will run Jan. 30-Feb. 9.

SBIFF’s Cinema Vanguard Award recognizes actors who have forged their own path, taking artistic risks and making a significant and unique contribution to film. Previous recipients include Willem Dafoe, Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Rooney Mara, Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Amy Adams, Jean Dujardin, Bernice Bejo, Nicole Kidman, Peter Sarsgaard, Christoph Waltz, Vera Farmiga, Kristin Scott Thomas, Stanley Tucci and Ryan Gosling.

Said SBIFF executive director Roger Durling in a statement: “It’s thrilling to honor Michael B. Jordan this year for the emboldened way he’s shown us what it means to be a movie star for the 21st century, mixing sensitivity with swagger, choosing important material that remains full of integrity yet becomes world phenomenon, and forging a cinematic partnership with visionary director Ryan Coogler.”

Press: The Favourite, Black Panther Lead Critics’ Choice Awards Nominations

Waking up to this news made me very happy. A huge congratulations to Michael B. Jordan and the rest of the Black Panther cast and crew for their amazing work on the film. Now lets bring it home for the win!

The period drama picked up 14 nods, while Black Panther followed up with 12.

The Favourite has run away with the Critics’ Choice Awards nominations. The darkly funny period drama, starring Olivia Colman as Queen Anne and Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone as warring cousins vying for royal attention, will lead the ceremony with a whopping 14 nominations, including nods for best picture, best actress (Colman), best supporting actress (Stone and Weisz), and best director (Yorgos Lanthimos).

The Favourite was followed closely by Marvel juggernaut Black Panther, which picked up 12 nods, including best picture, best acting ensemble, and best supporting actor (Michael B. Jordan). Damien Chazelle’s First Man, which seemed to lose some steam earlier in the awards race, came in third with 10 nods. Meanwhile, Mary Poppins Returns, A Star Is Born, and Vice followed with 9 nods apiece. While A Star Is Born has long been considered a front-runner this season, neither Vice nor Mary Poppins has yet hit theaters. Both, however, have slowly been gaining traction with critics and beyond, making a strong showing when Golden Globes nominations were announced; Vice ended up leading that field, with six nods total. And while the Globes are, well, the Globes, the Critics’ Choice nods offer a slightly more predictive glimpse at which films might might go all the way to the Oscars.

Speaking of films that might go all the way: Roma, which was named best picture on Sunday by both the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the New York Film Critics Online, landed eight Critics’ Choice nominations. Alfonso Cuarón’s critically adored period drama, inspired by his Mexican upbringing in the 1970s, was painted as a best-picture front-runner early on in this awards race, and critics have been eager to prove the predictions right. Green Book, another early contender, landed seven nominations.

In the TV realm, HBO and Netflix tied with 20 nods apiece, thanks to the success of shows like Sharp Objects and One Day at a Time, respectively. Amy Adams stood out with two nods; one for her supporting turn in Vice, and one for her lead turn in Sharp Objects.

FX followed closely behind HBO and Netflix, with shows like The Americans and The Assassination of Gianni Versace picking up five crucial nods each. Meanwhile, Showtime’s Escape at Dannemora made a strong debut with five nods of its own. The full list of nominations can be read here. The Critics’ Choice Awards will air January 13, 2019 on the CW.
