The inaugural Critics Choice Super Awards, a special event honoring the most popular, fan-obsessed genres across both television and movies — including superhero, sci-fi/fantasy, horror, action, and animation — are quickly approaching. Hosted by Kevin Smith and Dani Fernandez, this remote presentation of the Super Awards will air on The CW on Sunday, January 10, 2021 at 8 p.m. EST.
The list of nominees was announced this morning, and it includes five well-deserved nominations for the hit Amazon Prime Video series The Boys!
The Boys, based on the comic books by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, is set in a world where superheroes exist. Though that may sound all well and good, many of these super-powered humans cannot be trusted. The most twisted of them all are The Seven, a group of celebrity Supes that works under the villainous corporation Vought. The Boys, meanwhile, are a ragtag group of vigilantes fighting to take them all down once and for all.
The Boys received nominations in the following categories:
Best Superhero Series
Best Actor in a Superhero Series – Karl Urban
Best Actor in a Superhero Series – Antony Starr
Best Actress in a Superhero Series – Aya Cash
Best Villain in a Series – Antony Starr
