The Macavity Awards er kriminallitterære priser som utdeles årlig siden 1987 av Mystery Readers International, en USA-basert organisasjon for lesere, fans, kritikere, redaktører, utgivere og forfattere av kriminallitteratur med medlemmer i 19 land (2007). Foreningens medlemmer nominerer og stemmer fram vinnerne.

Prisen har fått navn etter the Mystery Cat i T.S. Eliots Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats (og musikal Cats).

Prisklassene har variert noe, men var i 2009:

  • Best Mystery Novel, for årets beste krimroman
  • Best First Mystery Novel, for årets beste debutarbeide
  • Best Nonfiction, for årets beste sakprosabok om kriminallitteratur eller relaterte emner
  • Best Short Story, for beste krimnovelle
  • The Sue Feder Historical Mystery Award, for beste historiske krimroman
