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!
