Chicago Tribune (Sunday) - - MORE THAN 9 LIVES FOR ‘CATS’? -

“The Out­sider” (8 p.m., 10 p.m., 2:10 a.m., HBO): Adapted from a novel by Stephen King, this new thriller fol­lows Ge­or­gia po­lice de­tec­tive Ralph An­der­son (Ben Men­del­sohn) as he in­ves­ti­gates the mur­der of an 11-year-old boy. Eye­wit­ness ac­counts and phys­i­cal ev­i­dence point to an un­likely sus­pect: Terry Mait­land (Ja­son Bate­man), a pop­u­lar lo­cal teacher, hus­band and fa­ther. When con­tra­dic­tory ev­i­dence that seems to clear Terry emerges, Ralph — who still is mourn­ing the death of his own son — brings in pri­vate eye Holly Gib­ney (Cyn­thia Erivo) to pro­vide her per­spec­tive.

“25th An­nual Crit­ics’ Choice Awards” (6 p.m., CW): Pre­sented by the Broad­cast Film Crit­ics As­so­ci­a­tion and the Broad­cast Tele­vi­sion Jour­nal­ists As­so­ci­a­tion, this awards cer­e­mony — which hon­ors the year’s best in films and TV/stream­ing — ob­serves its sil­ver an­niver­sary. In the movie cat­e­gories, Martin Scors­ese’s “The Ir­ish­man” leads this year’s pack of nom­i­nees with 14 nods, fol­lowed by Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hol­ly­wood” (12) and Greta Ger­wig’s “Lit­tle Women” (9). One of last year’s act­ing win­ners, Ma­her­shali Ali (“Green Book”), is back this year as a nom­i­nee for HBO’s “True De­tec­tive.”
