After it’s first season on TV, FX’s Atlanta is catching some of Hollywood’s eye as it has been now announced that the new series joins the list of nominations at this year’s Critic Choice Awards. Not only is the series up for Best Comedy Series but it’s star Donald Glover is up for a nomination as Best Actor In A Comedy Series.

Black Hollywood made its mark in this year’s categories, with Black-ish and FX’s new series Atlanta nabbing nominations for Best Comedy Series, as well as its star Donald Glover making the Best Actor in a Comedy Series category. Glover joins Black-ish star Anthony Anderson in that category, while Anderson’s onscreen wife, Tracee Ellis Ross, holds her own in the Best Actress in a Comedy Series category. American Crime Story‘s first season, focusing on the O.J. Simpson trial, was recognized in multiple categories again this year as well, including a Best Actor in a Movie Made for Television or Limited Series nom for both Cuba Gooding Jr. and Courtney B.
