35th Annual Critics’ Choice Award Movie Nominations

Genre work was paid little attention in the 35th Annual Critics’ Choice Award movie nominations outside the Best Sci-Fi or Horror Movie, Best Action Movie, and Best Visual Effects categories, although Joker popped up in some others, most notably a Best Actor nod for Joaquin Phoenix.

The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards is an awards show presented annually by the American-Canadian Broadcast Film Critics Association. Up for Best Sci-Fi or Horror Movie are Ad Astra, Avengers: Endgame, Midsommar, and Us.

Genre also made a strong showing in the Best Animated Feature category — Abominable, Frozen II, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, I Lost My Body, Missing Link, and Toy Story 4

The Irishman, another gangster drama from superhero disdainer Martin Scorsese, picked up the most film nominations with 14, including best picture, director, acting ensemble as well as best actor (Robert De Niro) and supporting actor (Al Pacino and Joe Pesci).

The Critics’ Choice Awards gala will broadcast live on The CW Television Network on Sunday, January 12.
