How goes the kingdom? Very well, according to nominations for the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards! Yorgos Lanthimos’s punchy period piece The Favourite led the film slate with 14 nominations: Best Picture, Actress, Actress in a Comedy, Acting Ensemble, Director, Editing, Original Screenplay, Cinematography, Production Design, Costume Design, Best Hair and Makeup, Comedy, plus a pair of nominations (for Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz) for Best Supporting Actress. (Nicholas Hoult and his dear, career-defining wigs: We’re deeply apologetic.) Black Panther had 12 nominations, and First Man got a much-needed awards-season bump with 10. Barry Jenkins’s If Beale Street Could Talk has five nominations, and Roma has eight. Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born earned nine nominations, including (finally) a nod for Sam Elliott.

On the television side, The AmericansThe Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, and Escape at Dannemora got five nominations each. Some surprising — but exciting — nods: Matthew Macfadyen earned a nom for Succession, Andy Samberg for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Shea Whigham for Homecoming, and both Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh will compete in the Best Actress category for Killing Eve. Netflix and HBO finished with 20 nominations each.

Last year, The Shape of Water had 14 nominations and ended the night with four wins, including Best Picture. (Three Billboards swept the major performance categories.) See this year’s winners announced at the Critics’ Choice Awards gala, broadcast live on the CW Network on Sunday, January 13.
