Critics Choice: Ted Lasso, Succession Lead TV's Big Winners; Squid Game and Yellowjackets Among First-Timers

Critics Choice Winners

The Critics Choice Awards — after being pushed back two months in the wake of the COVID omicron surge — were handed out on Sunday night at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, and hosted for The CW and TBS by Taye Diggs (All American) and Nicole Byer (Grand Crew).

Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso led the TV pack with four wins, including for Best Comedy and lead actor Jason Sudeikis. HBO’s Succession followed with three wins (including Best Drama), while Squid Game, The White Lotus and Mare of Easttown were among the night’s other multiple winners.

In addition to White Lotus, first-time winners included Showtime’s Yellowjackets and Disney+’s What If…?
