STAR TREK Picks up 8 Nominations at 2023 HCA Awards

The nominations for the Hollywood Critics Association Awards are out and STAR TREK has picked up a cool 8 nominations.



Star Trek: Picard (Prime Video/Paramount+)

Whilst Star Trek always remains a fan-favourite, the franchise has never been one to garner huge award nominations. At the peak of its 90s era, The Next Generation was able to generate Emmy nominations. But for the most part contemporary Trek series like Discovery and Strange New Worlds are recognised more for their technical achievements than their writing, directing and acting.

However the tide is slowly changing. Star Trek: Prodigy has won a slew of awards for its first season and now both Star Trek: Picard and Lower Decks have picked up nominations for the 2023 Hollywood Critics Association Awards.

The critically acclaimed final season of Picard has picked up an impressive seven nominations across acting, directing and writing. Whilst Lower Decks goes up against another of our favourite series, Harley Quinn, in the category of Best Streaming Animated Series Or TV Movie.
