December 12, 2016

SANTA MONICA, California (AP) — The host of the 22nd Critics Choice Awards chose not to discuss his legal troubles and instead focused on President-elect Donald Trump and the controversies surrounding his election, the Los Angeles Times reports.

T.J. Miller, a star of the TV series Silicon Valley, was arrested Dec. 9 after police say he slapped a car service driver on the head after remarks about Trump.

The Times says that on Dec. 11 at the awards show, Miller joked about possible hacking of the election by Russia and the automation of jobs.

The big winners at the show include:


— La La Land for best picture.

— Casey Affleck for best actor for his lead role in Manchester by the Sea.

— Natalie Portman for best actress for her lead role in Jackie.
