The critics have spoken, and it appears they like Star Trek: Lower Decks. The animated comedy has been nominated for a Critics Choice Award.
Lower Decks is the franchise’s first Critics Choice TV nomination
The television nominations were announced today by the Critics Choice Association and Star Trek: Lower Decks was nominated for Best Animated Series. It’s going up against Bluey, Bob’s Burgers, Genndy Tartakovskey’s Primal, Harley Quinn, and Undone.
While all three of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek films picked up nominations for the Critics Choice Movie Awards, this is a franchise first for the Critics Choice Television Awards, which began in 2011. The two different award shows have now merged into the single Critics Choice Awards, which will be broadcast live on The CW from the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 15, 2023. Star Trek has also been recognized at the more recently launched genre-specific Critics Choice Super Awards.
Recently wrapping up its third season, Lower Decks has been picking up more and more accolades in 2022, including series nominations at the Saturn Awards Hollywood Critics Awards, and Hugo Awards. A fourth season has already been ordered and is expected to debut in 2023.
