There are more accolades for the freshman season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, with a couple of new nominations for the series from the Critics Choice Association.
Strange New Awards
The CCA announced nominees for their third annual Critics Choice Super Awards, which is sepeate from their long-running Critics Choice Awards. The Super Awards honor “the most popular, fan-obsessed genres across both television and movies,” which includes sci-fi. This year Strange New Worlds was nominated for Best Science Fiction/Fantasy Series. It is going up against Andor, For All Mankind, House of the Dragon, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, and Stranger Things.
The star of Strange New Worlds was also being recognized. Anson Mount was nominated for Best Actor in a Science Fiction/Fantasy Series or TV Movie. He also has some stiff competition, going up against Chiwetel Ejiofor (The Man Who Fell to Earth), Samuel L. Jackson (The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey), Diego Luna (Andor), Adam Scott (Severance), and Matt Smith (House of the Dragon).
Two nominations for the franchise in 2023 matches last year, with Discovery also nominated (but not winning for best series and Sonequa Martin-Green for best actress). In the first year, there were more categories and the franchise picked up seven nominations, with Patrick Stewart winning for best actor for the first season of Picard.
This year’s winners will be revealed via a special announcement on Thursday, March 16.
