Before some of the hottest film and TV stars headed inside the Barker Hagar in Santa Monica, California, for the 21st annual Critics’ Choice Awards, they walked the red carpet (or blue carpet) in their finest dresses and suits. Just a few stars to grace the carpet were Gina Rodriquez, who received a Best Actress in a Comedy nomination for her role on “Jane the Virgin,” “Jessica Jones” star Krysten Ritter, "Black-ish" star Tracee Ellis Ross, "Nashville" actress Hayden Panettiere and Justin Theroux.

The Critics’ Choice pre-show was hosted by “Entertainment Tonight” hosts Samantha Harris and Kevin Frazier. Check out the hottest red carpet looks from the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards below.
