Netflix led the overall nomination count at the 26th Annual Critics Choice Awards for television thanks to the strength of two drama series: Ozark and The Crown. It’s not a huge surprise that either series ranked highest on the critics’ list. This season of Ozark already received a massive haul of Emmy nominations (if only one win for Julia Garner). The Critics Choice made room for two nominees omitted by Emmy: Janet McTeer and Tom Phelphry.

But the Critics’ Choice embrace of Netflix’s The Crown marks the first in what is presumably a long line of awards leading up to the fall’s Emmy ceremony. Widely acclaimed as its best season yet, The Crown‘s season four saw nominations for returning players Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, and Josh O’Connor as well as nominations for Emma Corrin and Gillian Anderson. Anderson’s nomination was expected. Hers is the kind of performance that at the very least gets nominated for everything if not outright wins everything leading up to the Emmys. But Corrin’s nomination is significant given she was elevated to the Lead Actress category along with Olivia Colman. This marks The Crown‘s largest Critics’ Choice nomination count to date.

On the backs of those two series, Netflix received the most nominations with 26. HBO was a close second with 24 nominations, thanks in part to the strength of two new series Lovecraft Country and Perry Mason. It also received multiple nominations in the limited series categories, including I May Destroy You, The Plot Against America, and The Undoing.

On the comedy front, Schitt’s Creek and What We Do In the Shadows led with five nominations each. Mrs. America led the limited series category with five nominations as well. Those included three nominations in the supporting actress category for Uzo Aduba, Margo Martindale, and Tracey Ullman.

There were oddities, as always. The Conners and Mom received mentions in unexpected ways with William Fitchner, Jamie Pressly, and Lecy Goranson receiving mentions for roles that have largely gone unnoticed. Also raising eyebrows were two omissions in the Best Actress in a Limited Series category – Nicole Kidman for The Undoing and Zoe Kazan for The Plot Against America. Kazan’s omission, in particular, is rather shocking given she was widely seen as giving the best performance in the series.

The winners will be revealed live on The CW on Sunday, March 7, 2021 from 7-10pm ET/PT, with Taye Diggs returning to host for his third consecutive time.
