Quiz Lady wins an 2024 Critics Choice Award

When I read John’s review of Quiz Lady, I was particularly amused at his last sentence that said it probably would not be eligible for an Oscar. While I did see the movie and enjoyed it, I thought that even if it was released theatrically, it would not have much of a chance to win any award much less be nominated. It looks like I was totally wrong! Quiz Lady picked up a Critic’s Choice Awards for Best Movie Made for Television Movie.

I looked into the people behind this movie and found out that it has quite a distinguished pedigree. In addition to having stars like Awkwafina, Sandra Oh, and Will Ferrell, it was directed by academy award winning director Jessica Yu and was produced by Will Ferrell and Jessica Elbaum’s Gloria Sanchez Productions, which focuses on female-centered stories. Screenwriter Jen D’Angelo mentions here that Quiz Lady premiered at the 2023 Toronto Film Festival. The movie retains good ratings on Rotten Tomatoes.

As John mentioned in his review, Quiz Lady is available to stream on Hulu.
