In the world where genre entertainment is overlooked at most awards, the Critics Choice Association is looking to change that. The CCA announced that they will be hosting the Critics Choice Super Awards, a special event honoring the most popular, fan-obsessed genres across both television and movies, including Superhero, Science Fiction/Fantasy, Horror, Action, and Animation.
The categories for the voting span across both TV and film. It will include awards like Best Action Movie, Best Superhero Movie, Best Horror Movie, Best Villain in a Movie, Best Superhero Series, Best Animated Series, and many.
“The time has come to recognize the brilliance, creativity, and artistic excellence showcased in genres that, for far too long, have been overlooked by other award shows,” said Critics Choice Association CEO Joey Berlin. “We are thrilled to be partnering with our friends at The CW to bring these beloved genres to the forefront and give them the recognition they so deeply deserve.”
“We’re excited to broadcast the first Critics Choice Super Awards at The CW to showcase and celebrate the excellence in often overlooked genres during the entertainment industry’s award season,” said Gaye Hirsch, Executive Vice President, Development, The CW, who also oversees alternative and special programming. “We look forward to bringing viewers an exciting event filled with the films, series, and stars they are most passionate about.”
