Be Sure to Watch the Critics Choice Awards on Thursday

posted by Nell Minow

I love the Critics Choice Awards, and not just because I get to vote.  The critics are the only ones who sit through most of the movies released each year and who have no ties to the industry to influence our votes.  This year’s Critics Choice Awards will include special tributes to Forest Whitaker, who will be presented with the Joel Siegel Award, by his co-star in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.”  Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke and Richard Linklater will receive this year’s Critics’ Choice LOUIS XIII Genius Award at the 19th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. The rest of the night’s winners will be announced live at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards ceremony on Thursday, January 16, 2014 from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif.  Hosted by Aisha Tyler, the star-studded awards gala will be broadcast live on The CW Network at 8:00 PM ET/PT. Red Carpet Pre-show coverage will also air in various local markets immediately before the awards ceremony.
