Scam 1992, Paatal Lok, Aarya, Special Ops and Panchayat have been nominated for the Critics Choice Awards in the Best Series category. 

The awards are organized each year by members of the Film Critics Guild. As 2020 hardly saw any films releasing because of theatres being shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only Hindi series that were released last year are being considered for the awards. 

Last year, Pratik Gandhi bowled over critics and audiences alike with his portrayal of the controversial stockbroker Harshad Mehta in Hansal Mehta’s Scam 1992. He has been nominated for the Best Actor Award. The other nominees in the category are Jaideep Ahlawat for Paatal Lok, Kay Kay Menon for Special OPS, Divyendu Sharma for Mirzapur and Bobby Deol for Aashram. 

As far as the Best Actress Award is concerned, the contenders are Rasika Dugal for Mirzapur 2, Sushmita Sen for Aarya, Shreya Dhanwanthary for Scam 1992, Sumukhi Suresh for Pushpavalli Season 2 and Shweta Tripathi Sharma for Mirzapur Season 2.
