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.
The Mandalorian, the first live-action Star Wars television series, was nominated for two awards. Though the show’s incredibly talented lead Pedro Pascal unfortunately did not win in his category, Best Actor in a Science Fiction/Fantasy Series, the show itself won the award for Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Series!
The Mandalorian was up against other strong contenders in this category, including Outlander, Raised by Wolves, Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, Upload, and What We Do in the Shadows.
The Mandalorian follows a mysterious Mandalorian bounty hunter named Din Djarin as he traverses the outer reaches of a galaxy far, far away in the wake of the fall of the Empire. The show premiered on Disney+ in late 2019 and recently finished airing its (incredible) second season. Seasons 1 and 2 of The Mandalorian are now streaming exclusively on Disney+.

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