TORONTO, Jan. 17, 2019 /CNW/ - This past Sunday, January 13th, the 24th Annual Critics' Choice Awards was hosted by acclaimed film, television and stage star Taye Diggs. The ceremony took place at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.
In attendance for the first time was Josie Ho, a very famous actor from Hong Kong. This was on the heels of Josie winning Sitges Film Festival's "Time Machine" award at the end of 2018.
Josie Ho was at the Critics' Choice Awards to present the "Best Foreign Language Film" award to the major award-winner of the night, Alfonso Cuarón, for his work as director of the film "Roma."
Reflecting on the night, Josie Ho said: "This is so exciting, I have so much respect for Alfonso Cuarón and really wanted him to win big today. I love that I got to present one of my artistic heroes with the Best Foreign Language Film Award."
After witnessing "Crazy Rich Asians" win the award for "Best Comedy," Josie felt "amazing". "It's just time to see a more diverse face in film than what we've seen in the past shown to audiences in North America," she said.
