Critics’ Choice TV Awards: What time does the show start?

The Critics’ Choice TV Awards take place on Sunday (May 31) at the Beverly Hilton and airs on A&E at 5:00 pm PT/ 8:00 pm ET. This is the fifth annual edition of these kudos bestowed by Broadcast Television Journalists Assn. (BTJA).

Looking for a handy cheat sheet before entering our contest to predict the winners ? You could win $100 as well as a place of honor on our leaderboard. Take a look at our racetrack odds below with the predicted winners  highlighted in gold (be sure to click on each category title for an in-depth look at that race).

These official odds are based on a combination of three sets of forecasts at Gold Derby: Editors, the Top 24 Users (at predicting the winners of last year’s awards) and All Users. Last year, Gold Derby’s Users and Top 24 were right 73.91% of the time, while our Editors trailed with 69.57%.

Why did Critics’ Choice snub past favorites like ‘Game of Thrones’ & ‘Orphan Black’?

Our Users are hoping stay ahead of us again this year, and you can help. If you think you know who will win this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards, click here to make your predictions. Your picks will be pooled together to generate our official racetrack odds, and if you have this year’s best predictions, you’ll win a $100 Amazon gift card (if you qualify according to our contest rules).

In order to win our contest, you must have the highest accuracy at predicting the winners in all the categories. But you may need more than that. If more than one user has the best percentage, the tie will be broken by most game points. So, remember to place your three super bets when making predictions. Each user gets one super bet of 500 points and two of 200 points with all the other categories worth 100 points. Strategy is key. Place those super bets wisely and they could crown you our winner.

Last year, our top User was Jacob D., who predicted 83% of the winners. Do you have that kind of special insight into this year’s contest? If so, there’s still time to make your predictions before Sunday’s live telecast. Click here to visit our predictions center, where you can enter your picks, or use the easy drag-and-drop menu at the bottom of this post to get started.
