Trevor Noah, Lupita Nyong'o, Cynthia Erivo & Mati Diop Nominated for 2020 Critics Choice Awards

Check out the full list of 2020 nominees for the 2020 Critics Choice Awards.

This past Sunday, the full list of nominees for the 2020 Critics Choice Awards was announced.

Among the nominees are South African comedian and host of the The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, for his Netflix comedy special Son of Patricia, Lupita Nyong'o for her role in the horror film Us, Cynthia Erivo for her role in the Harriet Tubman biopic Harriet and French-Senegalese filmmaker Mati Diop for her film Atlantics.


Just after scoring a Grammy nomination in the category of "Best Comedy Album" for his Netflix stand-up special Son of Patricia, Noah has now been nominated for a Critics Choice Award in the category of "Best Comedy Special". Joining him on the list is Nyong'o whose nomination is for "Best Actress" for her role in the Jordan Peele horror film Us. Her nomination comes just after she recently took home the win for "Best Lead Actress" in Us at this year's New York Critics Circle Awards.

Additionally, Diop's Atlantics, a "ghost love story centering themes of migration" which was picked up by Netflix, also won "Best First Film" at the New York Critics Circle Awards and has now been nominated for "Best Foreign Language Film" at the 2020 Critics Choice Awards.

Erivo features on the list in the same category as Nyong'o for her role in Harriet. Just yesterday, the actress was nominated for a Golden Globe for the same role.

The Critics' Choice Awards are set to take place on January 12th 2020.

To see who else is on the list of nominees for both film and television, check out the full list below.
