Shang-Chi garners 5 nominations for Critics Choice Super Awards

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings wasn’t just a hit with fans. It’s also a hit with critics.

The Critics Choice Association honored the first Marvel film to feature a predominantly Asian cast with 5 Super Awards nominations, reported the Daily News.

Stars Tony Leung and Simu Liu will face off against each other for Best Actor in a Superhero Movie. Leung also received a nomination for Best Villain.

Michelle Yeoh received recognition in the Best Actress in a Superhero Movie category and the Critics Association named the movie in the category of Best Superhero Movies.

Shang-Chi tied for most nominations with Spider-Man No Way Home.

“Every single nomination is so well-deserved…except mine,” said Liu on Twitter. What were they thinking. No, seriously, it’s a huge honor, but HOW. So proud of our amazing cast and everyone who came out to watch the film. I really hope Tony wins everything.:

The winners will be announced on March 17, reported the Belfast Telegraph.
