Netflix dramas are currently leading the 26th Annual Critics’ Choice Award nominations...

Awards season may be looking a lot different this year, but the show must certainly go on, and kicking off nominations this year is the Critics' Choice Awards. Ready to honour the very best in television and film over the past year for its upcoming 26th annual awards ceremony on March 7, the first wave of nominations has been announced.

As expected, Netflix had the most nominations of the year at 26 — with HBO close behind at 24 — and leading the nominations is Ozark and The Crown, leading the pack at six nods apiece. Lovecraft Country, Mrs. America, Schitt's Creek, and What We Do In The Shadows also had strong showings, following the pack with five nominations apiece, while Better Call Saul and The Plot Against America are each up for four awards.
