The inaugural Critics Choice Super Awards — an award show created to honor the most popular, fan-obsessed genres across both television and movies, including superhero/comic book, science fiction/fantasy, horror, action, and animation — took place this evening. As part of the festivities, Supernatural star Jensen Ackles took home the award for Best Actor in a Horror Series for his work as Dean Winchester, a role he has played since 2005. Ackles thanked the fans and his co-star, Jared Padalecki, in his acceptance speech, calling the honor the “cherry on top” of the end of the series.

Supernatural finished its 15-year run in November 2020, making it one of the longest running genre series in history. The series itself was nominated for Best Horror Series while Ackles and co-star Jared Padalecki were both nominated for Best Actor in a Horror Series.

I am a nurse and dedicated nerd from Boston, MA. When I'm not at work, I'm rewatching old favorites like Supernatural or discovering my new obsessions (too many to count!). When not fangirling, I can be found reading, writing, or listening to a true crime podcast. You can find me on Twitter @juleswritesblog for more nerdy nonsense.
