‘The Boys’ Wins Four Awards, Including Best Superhero Series, at Critics Choice Super Awards


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.

Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys received five nominations in total, and two of them were for the same category. The show ended up winning every single category that it was nominated for in a truly diabolical sweep.

Leads Karl Urban and Antony Starr were pitted against one another for Best Actor in a Superhero Series, both of whom are incredibly talented and impressive in their own right. We’re not sure how well this bodes for season 3 … because the most notorious Supe ended up taking the lead on this award.

Our epic season 2 villain Aya Cash, who portrays Stormfront, took home the award for Best Actress in a Superhero Series.

Because one award just wasn’t enough to convey his evil brilliance that fans just love to hate, Starr also took home the award for Best Villain in a Series.

Finally, the show itself won the category for Best Superhero Series. The Boys was up against a handful of strong contenders, including DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Doom Patrol, The Flash, Lucifer, and The Umbrella Academy.

The Boys, based on the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darrick Roberston, explores a world in which superheroes exist. The show flips this popular genre on its head, though, because many of these super-powered humans in question are just power-hungry and downright evil. The most twisted of them all are The Seven, a team of celebrity Supes employed by the villainous corporation Vought. The Boys, meanwhile, are a ragtag group of wayward vigilantes fighting to bring down Vought and the Supes once and for all.

The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Karen Fukuhara, Tomer Capon, Laz Alonso, and more. Season 3 of The Boys is set to begin filming soon.

Seasons 1 and 2 of The Boys are now streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. Make sure to check out our recaps and review of the show’s hit second season.

If you missed out on the live show tonight, it will be streaming tomorrow (January 11) free on The CW app and cwtv.com!
