While the Critics Choice Awards honor the best in film and television over the past year, a number of music stars have made the nominations cut.

Keeravani and Rahul Sipligunj.
Elsewhere on the Critics Choice nominees list, Janelle Monáe earned a best supporting actress nod for her role in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Monáe will also receive the SeeHer Award, which recognizes a woman who embodies the values of the SeeHer movement, which advocates for gender equality and accurate portrayals of women and girls in advertising and media.
