The Favourite leads this year's Critics' Choice Awards nominations with a total of 14, including best picture, best acting ensemble and best director for Yorgos Lanthimos.
In addition, stars Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz all scored acting noms, while Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara are up for best original screenplay.
Black Panther landed the second-most nominations with a total of 12, including best picture, best acting ensemble, best adapted screenplay for Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole and best supporting actor for Michael B. Jordan.
First Man scored 10 noms, while Mary Poppins Returns, A Star Is Born and Vice earned nine nominations each. Roma — named best picture of the year by the L.A. Film Critics Association on Sunday — has eight noms, while Green Book has seven. All of those films also will compete for best picture, along with BlacKkKlansman and If Beale Street Could Talk.
In addition to The Favourite and Black Panther, Crazy Rich Asians, Vice and Widows also are nominated for best acting ensemble.
Meanwhile, several nominees could walk home with more than one statuette. Alfonso Cuaron was cited in four categories for his work on Roma, including best director, original screenplay, cinematography and editing.
Bradley Cooper is nominated for his direction of A Star Is Born, along with nods for best actor and best adapted screenplay. Spike Lee is also up for best director and adapted screenplay for BlacKkKlansman, while Adam McKay is nominated for best director and original screenplay for Vice.
Christian Bale (Vice), Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns), Olivia Colman (The Favourite) and Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade) also are nominated for multiple awards. Meanwhile, costume designer Sandy Powell is nominated for her work on The Favourite and Mary Poppins Returns.
Meanwhile, the best director field is comprised entirely of males: In addition to Cooper, Cuaron, Lanthimos, Lee and McKay, the nominees include Damien Chazelle for First Man and Peter Farrelly for Green Book.
Like the Golden Globes, the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association hand out awards in both TV and film categories in one ceremony. On the TV side, HBO and Netflix tie for most nominations with 20 apiece, followed by FX with 16, Amazon with 12 and NBC with 11.
FX's The Americans and The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story and Showtime's Escape at Dannemora lead all TV series with five noms each. Americans is up for best drama series and four acting awards (Matthew Rhys, Keri Russell, Noah Emmerich and Holly Taylor), while Versace is up for best limited series and four acting awards (Darren Criss, Finn Wittrock, Penelope Cruz and Judith Light).
Escape also will vie for best limited series and four acting prizes (Paul Dano, Benicio Del Toro, Patricia Arquette and Eric Lange).
The Americans will vie for best drama series with Better Call Saul, The Good Fight, Homecoming, Killing Eve, My Brilliant Friend, Pose and Succession.
For best comedy series, shows nominated are Atlanta, Barry, The Good Place, The Kominsky Method, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Middle, One Day at a Time and Schitt’s Creek.
In the limited series category, Versace and Escape will compete alongside A Very English Scandal, American Vandal, Genius: Picasso and Sharp Objects.
Elsewhere, This Is Us was left out of the best drama series category, with only Milo Ventimiglia and Justin Hartley scoring acting noms out of the ensemble cast. The show was shut out of the Golden Globe noms, announced last week, as was Better Call Saul, which earned three Critics' Choice noms, including best drama series and acting mentions for Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn.
Also snubbed in the drama series category was The Handmaid's Tale, with Elisabeth Moss and Yvonne Strahovski singled out for acting noms.
GLOW landed only one acting nom, for co-star Betty Gilpin, and was shut out of best comedy series.
Meanwhile, The Good Fight landed a best drama series nom, but failed to land any acting nominations.
Pose, featuring a mostly trans cast, earned a nom for best drama series as well as recognition for star Billy Porter. Meanwhile, Facebook Watch scored a nom for best actress for Sorry for Your Loss star Elizabeth Olsen.
Julia Garner is nominated for her roles in both Dirty John and Ozark. Along with her nom for Vice, Amy Adams is also nominated for Sharp Objects.
Westworld earned a single nom, for best supporting actress in a drama series.
The winners will be revealed at the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards gala, broadcast live on the CW on Sunday, January 13, from 7-10 p.m. ET (delayed PT). Organizers say that the Critics' Choice Awards are historically the most accurate predictor of the Academy Award nominations. The awards show will be produced by Bob Bain Productions and Berlin Entertainment.
