A Star Is Born’s big chance to bounce back

Awards season is in full swing as Hollywood prepares for its second blockbuster red carpet event for 2019.

The Critics Choice Awards will roll out the red carpet for A-listers in California on Sunday local time, and is considered one of the best barometers for predicting the Academy Awards.

Despite missing out on all the big gongs in a shock upset at the Golden Globes last week, it's expected Lady Gaga and the A Star Is Born team will clean up at the 24th annual event, which celebrates the best work in both film and television and will stream direct from the US on Foxtel.

Gaga unsurprisingly is up for the Best Actress award, as well as Glenn Close (The Wife) who stormed ahead of the singer-turned-actor to take out the Globe.

It will be a tight race between the two, who are up against five other stars including Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns) and Olivia Colman (The Favourite).

Period drama The Favourite leads this years nominations with a total of 14, including best picture, best acting ensemble and best director, followed closely by Black Panther which has notched 12 nods.

First Man came third with 10 nominations, with Mary Poppins Returns, A Star Is Born and Vice trailing closely behind with nine.

Bradley Cooper is up for both Best Actor and Best Director for his work on A Star Is Born, after being snubbed for both awards at the Globes.

Despite cleaning up at the Globes, Bohemian Rhapsody is only up for three awards including Rami Malek in the Best Actor category, as well as Best Costume Design and Best Makeup.
