Jurnee Smollett and ‘Lovecraft Country’ Bring Home Two Critics Choice Super Awards

2 Min Read

The inaugural Critics Choice Super Awards took place this evening, 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.

Among the shows nominated was the HBO original series Lovecraft Country. The show was nominated for five awards total: Best Villian in a Horror Series, Abbey Lee; Best Actor in a Horror Series, Jonathan Majors and Michael K. Williams; Best Actress in a Horror Series, Jurnee Smollett and Wunmi Mosaku; and Best Horror Series. Jurnee Smollett earned the award for Best Actress in a Horror Series, and the show itself won Best Horror Series.

Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Freeman as he, his childhood friend Letitia “Leti” Lewis, and his uncle George travel across the Jim Crow South in search of Atticus’ father Montrose. Throughout their journey, the group faces monsters — in every sense of the word — learn about magic, and uncover shocking secrets about the Freeman family history. Season 1 is available to stream now on HBO Max. Find our recaps and other coverage of the show here.
