12 mins read

The Critics Choice Awards nominations were announced Wednesday, where The Daniels’ multiverse dramedy “Everything Everywhere All at Once” led the field with an astounding 14 nods, including best picture. Among its massive tally were four acting mentions for Michelle Yeoh in best actress, Ke Huy Quan in supporting actor and Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu in supporting actress. The Daniels received double nods for writing and directing the A24 box office hit.

Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” nabbed 11 nominations, including two supporting actor nods for Paul Dano and Judd Hirsch. Other favorites were Damien Chazelle’s “Babylon,” which picked up 10 nods, and “The Banshees of Inisherin,” which received nine.

Alongside “Everything Everywhere” in the best picture category are “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “Babylon,” “The Banshees of Inisherin,” “Elvis,” “The Fabelmans,” “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” “RRR,” “Tár,” “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Women Talking.” Except for Joseph Kosinski for “Top Gun” and Rian Johnson for “Glass Onion,” the nine other feature film directors are among the 10 nominees in the best director category, plus Gina Prince-Bythewood for “The Woman King.”

Other quirky and refreshing additions among the noms include Paul Mescal’s tender work in “Aftersun” in best actor, Danielle Deadwyler bouncing back after a Globes snub for her turn in “Till” and Michael Giacchino’s brilliant score finding love for “The Batman.”

“We are so proud to be recognizing this incredible group of films and the people who made them possible,” said Joey Berlin, CCA CEO. “This recognition comes from a diverse group of more than 600 critics and entertainment reporters who share their opinions about film and television with millions of people every day, all year long.”

As previously announced, Jeff Bridges will receive the Critics Choice Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s ceremony. On the television side, ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” leads the charge with six nods, including best comedy series, followed by AMC’s “Better Call Saul” with five.
