Anime Is Finally Tackling the 2023 Hollywood Critics Awards

Anime continues to shatter barriers, solidifying its remarkable growth over the past decades, and its global appeal shows no signs of waning. Major brands, from Netflix to Disney, have embraced the medium, and now Hollywood is also taking notice. Two popular anime titles are vying for recognition at the prestigious Hollywood Critics Awards, further highlighting anime's rising prominence.

Crunchyroll, the renowned streaming service, has confirmed that the 2023 Hollywood Critics Awards have expanded their nominations to include anime. This significant development was evident when the nominees for Best Streaming Animated Series or TV Movie were announced. While several American-made shows also received nominations, all eyes were on the anime selections for this year's awards.

Crunchyroll has submitted Attack on Titan and My Hero Academia for nominations at this year's Hollywood Critics Awards. These two anime titles are now competing against Animaniacs, Harley Quinn, Central Park, and Star Trek: Lower Decks for the coveted award. The decision rests with the judges of the Hollywood Critics Association, who will deliberate and determine the winner. Anime enthusiasts are eagerly hoping that one of the Crunchyroll picks will emerge victorious, but the announcement of the decision is yet to come.

If you're unfamiliar with these nominated anime series, fret not, as they are easily binge-watched. Attack on Titan, which is approaching its finale, offers all its seasons for binge-watching on Crunchyroll. Likewise, My Hero Academia, with its six seasons already available, can be enjoyed in its entirety before the upcoming premiere of season seven.

For more information on the two Hollywood Critics Awards nominees, here are their official synopses:

"Attack on Titan: In this post-apocalytpic sci-fi story, humanity has been devastated by the bizarre, giant humanoids known as the Titans. Little is known about where they came from or why they are bent on consuming mankind. Seemingly unintelligent, they have roamed the world for years, killing everyone they see. For the past century, what's left of man has hidden in a giant, three-walled city. People believe their 50-meter-high walls will protect them from the Titans, but the sudden appearance of an immense Titan is about to change everything."

"My Hero Academia: Middle school student Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero more than anything, but he hasn't got an ounce of power in him. With no chance of ever getting into the prestigious U.A. High School for budding heroes, his life is looking more and more like a dead end. Then an encounter with All Might, the greatest hero of them all, gives him a chance to change his destiny..."
