Critics Choice Movie Awards on VH1 Tomorrow!

posted by Nell Minow

I’m sorry not to be there in person this year but you can bet I’ll be watching when the Critics Choice Awards are on VH1 tomorrow night.  I admit to some bias as a very proud member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, but for me this is one of the highlights of the movie year.  It is not just a reliable predictor of the Oscars; I believe it is an influencer, as we will see when the Academy Award nominations are announced on January 24.

This year’s show looks wonderful, with “Funny or Die” hosts Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer, a special award presented to Sean Penn by George Clooney, a music and film award to Martin Scorsese featuring a performance by Bob Dylan, music from Fitz and the Tantrums, and a galaxy of glamorous stars.
