On Instagram, John shared his thoıughts and feeling about this unexpected nomination and said that he’s grateful for this nomination. Also, he thanked the director of ‘Small Axe’ Steve McQueen and his team.
Here’s what he said:
“Such amazing news to receive !! Grateful for this nomination! Congrats to the @smallaxeseries team and the our big boss Steve McQueen ❤️ #criticschoiceawards”
This year, nominations included a new short-form category, which was dominated by Quibi in its first and only season. Meanwhile, there was not an animated series category, unlike last year.
The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards also announced that Taye Diggs will host the live show, which will air live on the CW on Sunday, March 7 from 7-9 p.m. ET/PT. Film nominees will be unveiled on February 7, as well as the format of this year’s ceremony.
