Critics Choice Super Awards Hand Out Inaugural Genre Prizes

Courtesy of Critics Choice


The inaugural Critics Choice Super Awards announced their winners tonight, awarding what they consider the best in genre film and television from the year 2020. It’s a noble undertaking, aiming to give recognition to the kinds of movies and series that are often overlooked at the major awards shows by awards bodies who have a bias against horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and action works. 

2020 was a weird year for genre features, and I’m sure the Critics Choice Association were planning for their Best Superhero Movie category to be a little more stacked before the many release date delays this year ultimately led to them having to fill nominations with things like Secret Society of Second Born Royals, alongside some other unconventional nominees like Sputnik in Best Horror Film, and Iliza Shlesinger (currently starring in awards contender Pieces of a Woman) getting nominated for her performance in Spenser Confidential

That being said, a few of the Oscar contenders still managed to sneak in there, and in most cases were the ones taking home the prizes in their categories. Delroy Lindo pulled in a win for Best Actor in an Action Movie for Da 5 Bloods, which won the Best Action Movie category. Palm Springs has a fighting chance for a Best Original Screenplay nomination at the Oscars, and it took home the award here for Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Movie, as well as the acting prizes in that category for its leads Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti. Another potential contender with a longshot hope is Elisabeth Moss, who won for Best Actress in a Horror Movie for The Invisible Man, with Leigh Whannel’s film getting the win for Best Horror Movie.
