We didn't see this coming in a million light years!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens may be the most popular movie of all time judging by its box office numbers, but the sci-fi epic is actually a hit with critics as well.

In fact, even though the nominations for the 21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards were revealed on December 14… the J.J. Abrams flick managed to score a late entry on Tuesday!

According to a press release, voters decided to add the 7th film in the franchise to their list, saying:

"The film was not screened for BFCA voters in time for the initial nominations balloting, but after members of the nation's largest film critics group saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens last week it was decided to hold a special referendum yesterday to determine if it would have been nominated if the BFCA membership had been able to consider it."

Apparently, this means the movie as a whole was the only possibility — so no acting awards for Daisy Ridley or John Boyega — but we're sure this news is more than enough for them right now!

Make sure to see what wins big when T.J. Miller hosts the Critics' Choice Awards January 17 at 8 p.m. EST on A&E, Lifetime, and LMN!
