‘The Mandalorian’ Wins Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Series at the 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.

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+. You can read our recaps for each episode here.

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