This morning the Critics Choice Association (CCA) announced the film nominees for the 26th annual Critics Choice Awards, and Netflix led with 24 nominations for their films, including Mank, Malcolm & Marie, Da 5 Bloods, and The Trial of the Chicago 7. The buzz around the Netflix biopic Mank had previously been considerably muted, with many singling it out for below-the-line categories, but after leading the Critics Choice film nominations with 12, the story about Citizen Kane’s prickly scribe Herman Mankiewicz is back in contention. The biopic earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor (Gary Oldman), Best Supporting Actress (Amanda Seyfried), and Best Director (David Fincher). A24’s immigrant tale Minari (Certified Fresh at 198%) followed closely behind with 10 nominations, providing competition for Mank in Best Picture, Best Actor (Steven Yeun), Best Supporting Actress (Youn Yuh-jung), and Best Director (Lee Isaac Chung) as well. Couple today’s nominations with recent SAG nominations, including the coveted Best Ensemble nom, and things are shaking out very well for the quiet drama, which will go head to head with Oscar frontrunner Nomadland.

Not to be left out, the Frances McDormand-led drama — currently sitting at the top of our Awards Leaderboard — was nominated for 6 awards of its own, including Best Picture and Best Director for Chloé Zhao. The winners will be revealed live on The CW on Sunday, March 7, 2021 from 7-10pm ET/PT, with star Taye Diggs returning to host. Read on to to see the full list of nominations.
