Awards season may look a bit different this year, but that isn’t stopping the film and TV industry from commemorating hard work. On Sunday, March 7, stars will gather both virtually and in person to celebrate the 26th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards.
While nominees will join the ceremony virtually, the awards will mainly take place at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. Host Taye Diggs and certain presenters are appearing in person.
“We are so thrilled to be celebrating the incredible work that was released during this extended season,” said Critics’ Choice Association CEO Joey Berlin. “In a year when the need for entertainment was undeniable, the industry rallied to deliver beautiful series that delighted us, educated us, challenged us, and most importantly, brought us all together.”
During the show, Zendaya will be honored with the SeeHer Award. Established in 2016, the annual award recognizes a woman who defies stereotypes and acknowledges the importance of authentic portrayals of women across the entertainment landscape.
