Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Art Direction

The Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Art Direction is one of the awards given to people working in the motion picture industry. They are presented by the Broadcast Film Critics Association at their annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards. It was first presented in 2009. At its first appearance in 2009, the Critics' Choice Movie Awards were seen as a form of the anti-Hollywood media, which were also considered as a part of that critique and prejudice towards Hollywood. However, this year they chose to make a more proactive stance and welcomed the nomination of the Netflix film, Sense8.
