Precursor: 4th Hawaii Critics Awards (2019)

Unlike last year’s embarrassment of having every other winner a tie because there were only 4 members, that issue has been resolved with their expansion to 7 members. That said, they may have done something else to prevent ties because that’s still too few to avoid it. Other than that, this slate looks like it was chosen by an all-male group, which this one is. There’s a notable lack of diversity among the winners and no other diverse group put so much faith in Joker.
