Astra Film Awards: ‘Barbie’ Wins Eight Awards, Including Best Picture – Hollywood Reporter

3 minutes, 48 seconds Read

Barbie led all films with eight wins at the Astra Film Awards on Saturday night, but the biggest winner of all may have been the HCA — an organization of “critics, entertainment journalists, content creators, industry insiders and creatives” formerly known as the Hollywood Critics Association and recently rebranded as the Hollywood Creative Alliance — which appears to have weathered external criticisms and internal dissension, given the sizable talent turnout at its flagship event.

Among those who came to the Biltmore in downtown L.A. to collect honors during a weekend packed with awards season activities leading up to the Golden Globe Awards: Barbie’s Greta Gerwig, who collected the best picture and best original screenplay prizes, the former with producer David Heyman, who, in turn, collected Margot Robbie’s best actress prize; Mark Ronson, who accepted best original song (“I’m Just Ken”) and, on behalf of Ryan Gosling, best supporting actor; The Color Purple’s Fantasia Barrino, Danielle Brooks and Colman Domingo, who accepted the best cast ensemble award; Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret’s Kelly Fremon Craig, accepting best comedy feature; the best adapted screenplay winner, American Fiction’s Cord Jefferson; and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’s Hailee Steinfeld.

Bayona (filmmaking achievement award); and Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret’s Abby Ryder Fortson (star on the rise award).

Some former HCA members continue to express concern to journalists about the organization, even since its rebranding, alleging conflicts of interest related to its advisory board, among other things. But it appears that a sizable portion of the business is unbothered.
