CW to Broadcast the Critics Choice Awards on January 10th

posted by Nell Minow

I’m thrilled to be attending the Critics Choice Awards on Thursday evening — be sure to watch it on the CW network at 8:00 pm (ET/PT) and see if you can glimpse me in my fabulous blue ball gown!  And cast your vote for one of our new categories, best film franchise!  The Critics Choice Awards are frequently a good predictor of the Golden Globes and Oscars.  And they are always very glamorous, filled with big stars, and a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to Judd Apatow’s special award — presented by Rebel Wilson!  And we hear all the nominees for Best Actor, Actress, and Director will be there!

“The BFCA is thrilled that our awards show has an exciting new broadcast partner that reaches the same audience that most frequently goes to the movies and will most enjoy our glamorous Hollywood party,” Joey Berlin, president of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, said in a statement Monday. “The CW is breaking out this fall and we expect The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards to help continue the network’s surge. With our big event falling on the very day that Oscar nominations are announced, we know everyone is going to be watching our star-studded celebration of the biggest and best movies of the year.”

Interview: Ted Melfi of "St. Vincent"
Writer/director Ted Melfi got Bill Murray to appear in his first film by calling him. Murray does not have an agent or a manager. He has an 800 number. And Melfi left message after message until Murray finally called back and asked Melfi to pick him up at the airport. Apparently his pitch skills (an

What Do Critics Think About Watching Film That Is Not What the Makers Intended?
Thanks to Indiewire for including me in their survey of critics about how important it is to watch a movie as it was filmed. If it was made on film stock, is it unfair to the artists' vision to watch a digital version? Here was my answer: [caption id="attachment_30587" align="alignright" widt
