Apple TV+ already has itself an award from the Critics Choice Association, racking up a win on the back of Billy Crudup’s performance in The Morning Show last year from the Critics Choice Awards. And now the streaming service has the possibility of winning a few more.
Today, the 2021 Critics Choice Television Awards revealed the nominations for the winning categories. All told, Apple TV+ earned a whopping nine nominations across some of the most worthwhile options. That includes “Best Drama Series” and “Best Comedy Series.”
Even better, the aforementioned Crudup has actually been nominated yet again for his role in The Morning Show. Which is well deserved, he’s easily one of the standouts in one of the best shows on Apple’s streaming service. And of course, Ted Lasso picked up some nominations as well.
In any event, here are the nine nominations Apple TV+ picked up this year:
- Best Drama Series: For All Mankind
- Best Comedy Series: Ted Lasso
- Best Foreign Language Series: Acapulco
- Best Movie Made for Television: Come From Away
- Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series: Billy Crudup in The Morning Show
- Best Actor in a Comedy Series: Jason Sudeikis in Ted Lasso
- Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: Hannah Waddingham in Ted Lasso
- Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: Kristen Chenoweth in Schmigadoon!

We’ll let Apple pat itself on the back a little:
Since the debut of Apple TV+ just over two years ago, Apple’s series and films have earned 170 wins and 623 nominations and have recently received recognition from the Academy Awards, SAG Awards, Critics Choice Awards, Critics Choice Documentary Awards, NAACP Image Awards, as well as past Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards, plus more.
