    Our Story:

    http://www.goldderby.com/news/10522/critics-choice-awards-movie-television-13579086.html

    R.I.P. Critics’ Choice Television Awards — we hardly knew you. After five years of being a separate entity from its granddaddy the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, both kudos will combine into one main event for the first time beginning Sunday, January 17, 2016. “We are thrilled to bring the two Critics’ Choice Awards shows into one super-show,” said President Joey Berlin during a breakfast reception at the W Hotel in Hollywood. “Bringing all these stars together in one room is going to create an incredible night of entertainment.”

    The upcoming ceremony — dubbed simply the 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards — will expand to three hours to accommodate all those extra categories and it will be preceded by a live one-hour red carpet pre-show. For the first time, the new gala will be trimulcast on three networks: A&E, Lifetime and LMN.

    Despite the combination of all the movie and TV races, Berlin assures that no categories will be eliminated, though some of the smaller awards will be handed out before the live show begins. “Members will make all the nominations and vote for all the winners in the same categories as we have in the past,” he detailed. “And we’ll be presenting all the major film and television categories live on air in one glamorous and star-studded TV special.”

    Regarding eligilibity for this year’s kudos, Gold Derby exclusively confirmed that movie eligibility is the 2015 calendar year, while TV eligibility for this year only will be June 1 through December 31.

    What about eventual comparisons to the Golden Globe Awards, which already combine film and television? “Our voters are perhaps less star-struck and a bit savvier than our foreign peers,” Berlin remarked. “While the Globes have long been the party of the year, we believe the Critics’ Choice Awards are a little smarter, a little more in touch with American and Canadian tastes, and ultimately more useful to the viewers and ticket buyers.”

    The Critics’ Choice Awards are bestowed by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association to honor the best in cinematic and TV achievement. The BFCA is comprised of almost 300 members while the BTJA has almost 100 members.

    Here’s the updated timeline for the 21st Critics’ Choice Awards following today’s announcement:

    December 7, 2015 – Film nominating ballots go out to BFCA members; TV nominating ballots go out to BTJA members

    December 11, 2015 – Deadline for returning all nominating ballots

    December 14, 2015 – Critics’ Choice Awards nominees announced

    January 14, 2016 – Final film ballots go out to BFCA members; final TV ballots go out to BTJA members

    January 15, 2016 – Deadline for returning final ballots

    January 17, 2016 – The 21st annual ceremony airs live on A&E, Lifetime and LMN from Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California


    ——————————-OFFICIAL RELEASE———————————-

    A+E NETWORKS EXPANDS PARTNERSHIP WITH THE BROADCAST FILM CRITICS ASSOCIATION AND THE BROADCAST TELEVISION JOURNALISTS ASSOCIATION TO COMBINE ‘THE CRITICS’ CHOICE TELEVISION & MOVIE AWARDS’ INTO ONE UNFORGETTABLE SHOW 

     

    THE 21ST ANNUAL CRITICS’ CHOICE AWARDS’ TO SIMULCAST LIVE ON A&E, LIFETIME AND LMN ON SUNDAY, JANUARY 17 AT 8 PM ET/PT

     

     

    New York, NY—September 30, 2015 — A+E Networks, home of “The Critics’ Choice Television Awards” and “The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards” for the past year, will combine the two shows into one star-studded three-hour event.  Together, the network and its continued partnership with the Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) and the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) will showcase the achievements of some of the biggest names in television and film today. The announcement was made jointly today by Elaine Frontain Bryant, Executive Vice President of Programming for A&E, and Joey Berlin, BFCA/BTJA President. “The 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards” will air live on A&E, Lifetime and LMN on Sunday, January 17 at 8PM ET/PT immediately following a live Red Carpet show at 7PM ET/PT.

     

    Last year’s movie and television award shows were hosted by Michael Strahan and Cat Deeley respectively, joined by the industry’s biggest stars. The host for this year’s combined award show will be announced at a later date.   

     

    “We are thrilled to bring the two Critics’ Choice Awards shows into one super-show,” said Berlin.  “At a time when there are so many great movies and television shows to choose from – and so many spectacular performances – it is logical, appropriate and useful for America’s leading film and television critics and reporters to collectively honor the best of the best at the start of the new year.  Bringing all these stars together in one room is going to create an incredible night of entertainment.”

     

    “Combining the television and film communities within one telecast of ‘The Critics’ Choice Awards’ even further elevates this star-studded gala event,” said Frontain Bryant.  “We’re thrilled to be able to give viewers an up close look at so much talent together under one roof with this unique and enhanced awards show.”

     

    “The Critics’ Choice Awards” are bestowed annually by the BFCA and BTJA to honor the finest in cinematic and television achievement. The BFCA is the largest film critics’ organization in the United States and Canada, representing almost 300 television, radio and online critics. BFCA members are the primary source of information for today’s film going public. BTJA is the collective voice of almost 100 journalists who regularly cover television for TV viewers, radio listeners and online audiences. Historically, “The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards” are the most accurate predictor of the Academy Award nominations.  

     

    “The 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards” will be produced by Bob Bain Productions and Berlin Entertainment.  BFCA/BTJA were represented by WME and Dan Black of Greenberg Traurig on this deal.

    But why?? Critics Choice allowed itself to be a comparison to the emmys by being held in June, now its trying to compare itself to the GG, which in its TV choices it bares some similarities to (i.e. new, criticially acclaimed), which means, being held after the GG they’ll be a true after thought, deemed to perhaps copy GG choices. More importantly when they make choices such as Lorraine Toussaint or Jonathan Banks they can’t be easily compared to poor emmy choices such as Aduba (sorry Ralph) and Dinklage, if compared to poor Globe choices people will say ‘who cares it GGs anyway’, so they’re allowing themselves to stand next to a less respected awarding body which they’ll always be beneath, further reducing their impact. This indicates its all down to a financial advantage merging it together, but I’d rather the TV bit didn’t exist now as its reputation which it built it will lose!

    So, the Critics’ Choice Awards have moved away from Oscar nom day. No more awkward interviews and host gags about snubs. Now they’re the week afer the Golden Globes.

    That is a very interesting desicion. No The Americans. No Game of Thrones. No Mad Men. No House of Cards(though they already don’t like the show) No Better Call Saul.
    So what will win the biggest program awards? Critics are so over Downton. Homeland and OITNB are losing their support each year. Will it go to The Good Wife or Empire? Or will new shows Mr. Robot& Sense8 would prevail?
    The comedy side is even emptier. I believe only Modern Family will be eligible for Critics Choice among this years Emmy nominated comedies.
    How will they even fill Miniseries and Movie slots for only covering 6 months? They already have two different categories for this genre. And the Producer said they wouldn’t eliminate any past categories.

    Maybe they should decrease the nomination slots from 6 to 3 or 4 just for this year. Because I don’t want to see mediocre shows such as True Detective, TBBT or AHS among nominated shows because of the lack of competition.
     
    A- If this would deactivate or reduce Globes importance I’m more than okay with it. I’m still baffled by how those 94 nobodies preferences would make so much difference in the popular culture. Some of them are even barbers, lol. At least these guys are the real tv critics. And both ceremonies are being given out in Beverly Hilton Hotel. So people just have to get used to it.
    B- If this would make them even more Globe-ish in the long term; in terms of star-worshipping and desire to please big names instead of unknown and deserving ones to grow more audience, please come back before it’s too late BCJA!

    Wow. Thanks for this list TVFan. It’d be very useful.
    OITNB should be eligible, though. Season 3 aired on June 11.
    I forgot that Downton would be ineligible because the foreign shows would have to air on an USA network first to become eligible for award shows.

    Also all Critics Choice TV winners from last ceremony(including two program winners Silicon Valley and The Americans) would be ineligible this time except for two names: Allison Janney and Taraji P.Henson.

    I didn’t know Scream Queens was an anthology series. Oh and let’s not forget True Detective!

    Keep in mind that all of the shows mentioned here WERE eligible already at this summer’s Critics’ Choice Awards. The cutoff was May 31 for those kudos, so June 1 starts a new cycle. But I also agree with the above statements that with only seven months of eligibility now, the TV nominees might be lacking at the 21st Critics’ Choice Awards.

    Hopefully they scratch this idea. It doesn’t make any sense.
