CRITICS CHOICE AWARDS 2019 RECIPIENTS: The Crown actress, Claire Foy, is picking up this year’s #SeeHer Award, while television writer, producer and composer Chuck Lorre is being presented with the Critics’ Choice Creative Achievement Award. BFCA President Joey Berlin stated that, “The Big Bang Theory has been called the most successful television comedy ever, so it seems like the perfect time to honor Chuck as that show gets ready to ride off into the sunset. Thankfully, we still have Mom, Young Sheldon, and his latest gift to comedy lovers, The Kominsky Method going strong to help us get over the loss. 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.” Just Jared reported that the cast members from The Big Bang Theory, who are presenting, are Mayim Bialik, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Jim Parsons, and Melissa Rauch.
Viola Davis is presenting Foy with her #SeeHer Award.
