The Critics Choice Awards have unveiled their film and television nominations, with Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman leading the way on the film side thanks to 14 nominations including Best Picture.

Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood came in right on its heels with 12 nominations, while Little Women and Marriage Story claimed nine and eight noms, respectively. The other top honorees were Jojo Rabbit and Parasite, which picks up seven nominations each.

Scarlett Johansson earned a pair of nominations for her lead performance in Marriage Story and her supporting turn in Jojo Rabbit, while Noah Baumbach, Greta Gerwig, Bong Joon Ho and Tarantino were all honored with directing and screenwriting nominations.

The Critics Choice Awards allow for up to seven nominees in the acting categories, though on-the-bubble movies like Richard Jewell, Just Mercy and Dark Waters were all shut out.

TV - Side - Us - Schitt - Creek

On the TV side, When They See Us, This Is Us and Schitt’s Creek led the way, as Ava DuVernay‘s limited Netflix series picked up six nominations, while the other two shows landed five noms each.

Dual acting nominees include Laura Dern from Marriage Story and Big Little Lies, and Asante Blackk from When They See Us and This Is Us.
