Guillermo del Toro's wondrous Cold War fairytale The Shape of Water may have dominated this morning's Critics' Choice Awards nominations (14!), but the Broadcast Film Critics Association still showed some love to two of 2017's superhero gems: Logan and Wonder Woman. Feud: Bette and Joan leads the pack on the TV front with six nominations, including Best Limited Series and acting honors for stars Jessica Lange, Alfred Molina, Stanley Tucci, Judy Davis, and Jackie Hoffman. The awards are voted on by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association.

Saoirse Ronan, who was tipped for stardom by "Hot Press" all the way back in 2007 when we were the first magazine in the world to put her on the cover, has been nominated for Best Actress for her role in "Lady Bird". Unsurprisingly, Ragnarok and Wonder Woman made the cut for Best Visual Effects - Chris Hemsworth even got a nod for Best Actor in a Comedy - but perhaps most exciting of all, Dafne Keen (X-23) and Patrick Stewart received nominations for their powerful performances in Logan. James Franco was nominated for best actor and best actor in a comedy for The Disaster Artist, and Tiffany Haddish was nominated for best supporting actress and best actress in a comedy for Girls Trip. It earned six nominations, while HBO's "Big Little Lies" and FX's "Fargo" series each earned five.
