Jared Padalecki, Angela Bassett, and Many More Announced as Presenters at Critics Choice Awards


With the 26th Annual Critics Choice Awards less than a week away, the Critics Choice Association has announced the star-studded list of presenters who will be joining returning host Taye Diggs onstage, live or virtually, for the March 7 awards show.

Stars from both film and television — including favorites like Supernatural, and now Walker, star Jared Padalecki, and 9-1-1 darling Angela Bassett — are on the list of presenters for the evening. The list also includes Kevin Bacon, Mayim Bialik, Orlando Bloom, Phoebe Dynevor, Morgan Freeman, Gal Gadot, Jim Gaffigan, Tony Hale, Chelsea Handler, Justin Hartley, Chris Hemsworth, Tyler Hoechlin, Jameela Jamil, Leslie Jordan, Javicia Leslie, Eva Longoria, Chrissy Metz, Mads Mikkelsen, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ashley Park, Kyra Sedgwick, Yara Shahidi, Elizabeth Tulloch, Courtney B. Vance, and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Due to COVID-19, the awards show will be an in-person/virtual hybrid, with Diggs and some of the evening’s presenters live in Los Angeles, while nominees and other presenters will be appearing live remotely from wherever they are. Also, as previously announced, current Critics Choice Award nominee and award-winning actress Zendaya will be the recipient of the fifth annual SeeHer Award, to be presented by her Malcolm & Marie co-star John David Washington.

If you are not familiar with the nominees for this year you can find the film nominees here and the television nominees here. Be sure to tune into the Critics Choice Awards live on The CW on Sunday, March 7 from 7-10 p.m. ET/PT.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
