Critics Choice TV Awards nominations: Complete list of contenders

The 2023 Critics Choice TV Awards nominations were announced on Tuesday, December 6 with ABC’s elementary school sitcom “Abbott Elementary” leading the field with six nominations. Next in line with five bids was AMC’s dearly departed drama series “Better Call Saul.” The critics’ group also fell in love with four-time nominees “Gaslit” (Starz), “Reservation Dogs” (FX), and “The Good Fight” (Paramount+). See the complete list of 2023 Critics Choice TV Awards nominations below.

The trophies for television and film will be handed out Sunday, January 15, 2023 at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. The ceremony will air live on CW from 7-10 p.m. ET (delayed on the West Coast). As always, the awards are voted on by members of the Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA).

Ed Martin, Critics Choice Association TV Branch co-president, said in a statement, “As we embark on holding the 28th annual Critics Choice Awards, we are amazed by the wealth of remarkable television programs that were considered to become this year’s nominees. Clearly, the industry has rebounded in a big way. We look forward to honoring the year’s finest shows and performances at the upcoming awards ceremony.”
