‘Palm Springs’ Takes Home Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Movie Super Award Among Others in Critics Super Choice Awards 2021

2 Min Read

The inaugural Critics Choice Super Awards took place tonight. The award show was 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.

Boasting nominations in the Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Movie, Best Actor in a Science Fiction/Fantasy Movie, Best Actress in a Science Fiction/Fantasy Movie, and Best Villain in a Movie categories, Palm Springs managed to take an award in all but one category it was nominated in. The movie took home Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Movie, while leads Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti respectively secured Best Actor and Actress in a Science Fiction/Fantasy Movie (J.K. Simmons was unfortunately edged out by Jim Carrey for Best Villain in a Movie).

Palm Springs follows characters Nyles (Andy Samberg) and Sarah (Cristin Milioti) who have a chance meeting at the Palm Springs wedding of Sarah’s sister Tala (Camila Mendes) and her fiancé Abe (Tyler Hoechlin) and subsequently become stuck in an infinite time loop. As Sarah comes to terms with being stuck, she begins to embrace Nyles’ carefree nihilistic attitude as the two fall for each other while trying to make the most of the never-ending November 9 and come to terms with their new reality.
