The Critics Choice Association (CCA) has announced that acclaimed actor, director, and producer America Ferrera will receive the 8th annual SeeHer Award at the upcoming 29th annual Critics Choice Awards.

The prestigious award recognizes Ferrera’s significant contributions, advocacy for gender equality, authentic portrayals of characters, and ongoing efforts to challenge stereotypes in the entertainment industry.

The Critics Choice Awards ceremony will be hosted by Chelsea Handler and broadcast live on The CW on January 14, 2024. The SeeHer Award, presented by the SeeHer movement, honors women who advocate for gender equality and break down barriers in the media. Viola Davis, Gal Gadot, Claire Foy, Kristen Bell, Zendaya, Halle Berry, and Janelle Monáe have all previously received the award.

America Ferrera, best known for her Emmy-winning role in “Ugly Betty” and impactful performances in films like “Real Women Have Curves” and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” has consistently defied stereotypes and pushed the boundaries of representation in the industry.

Ferrera’s most recent projects include her role in Greta Gerwig’s groundbreaking film “Barbie,” for which she was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for Best Supporting Actress. Her roles in Sony and Black Bear Pictures’ dramedy “Dumb Money” and the Apple TV+ series “WeCrashed” also demonstrate her versatility and continued impact on the big screen.

Ferrera has established herself as a multifaceted talent outside of her acting career. She executive produced and directed episodes of Netflix’s hit Latinx drama “Gentefied” for Seasons 1 and 2 and executive produced, directed, and starred in NBC’s beloved workplace comedy “Superstore.”

Ferrera is celebrated not only for her artistic accomplishments but also for her activism. She co-founded Poderistas, a digital lifestyle community and non-profit dedicated to empowering Latinas, in 2020. She is also a co-founder of HARNESS, a community that uses art and storytelling to promote social change.

The Critics Choice Awards, which have historically been a good predictor of Academy Award nominations, will honor the best in film and television. Ferrera’s impact on and off the screen continues to shape the industry’s narrative and inspire future generations as she prepares to receive the SeeHer Award.
