Critics Choice Movie Awards

The Critics' Choice Awards is the second of the major awards ceremonies to take place in 2013, following the evening after the People's Choice Awards. It is being held this year at the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport, which is exactly what it sounds like, although it has been impressively converted to host events like this - the high vaulted ceilings are noted to really help with the acoustics of the location and it is often used to host concerts as well as awards and trade shows.

These awards are hosted by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and have been held every year since 1985. The BFCA represents over 200 top industry critics so I guess you would have to lend a decent amount of weight to their opinions, although personally I think if I was an actor I would get more satisfaction from winning a People's Choice award - I think there's a certain impression you get of movie critics that perhaps they are a little "up themselves" and give more credibility to films based on perceived artiness rather than general public acclaim.

Having said that, it has been noted that the Critics Choice Movie Awards (sometimes abbreviated to CCMA) do actually have a higher correlation in picking winners with the most prestigious awards of all, The Oscars. I guess this would make sense if you think that it's the same sort of groups of people represented. The Hollywood Reporter recently noted that at the 2012 awards the 9 films selected for the CCMA Best Picture nominations were all also nominated for the Academy Awards, compared to only 7 of those chosen by the people as part of the people's choice awards.

There is an argument I suppose that the opinion of the people should be the main factor, and this is effectively monitored by box office success, but the counter-argument would then be that this discriminates against the smaller, independent film makers who don't have the budget and big name stars to reach the masses in the same way.

Either way, this is sure to be a great night out - the guest list may not be quite as glittering as some of the larger awards, but names such as George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron, Bob Dylan, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg were all at the event last year so there will certainly be no shortage or red carpet paparazzi appeal!

Nominations and Predictions

 

The full list of nominations was announced on 11 December 2012 and is below. As is our (newly decided upon) tradition we're having a stab at predicting the winners, and you'll find our selections noted in italics.

You may note that in some categories we haven's made a selection - where this is the case it's simply because we haven't seen enough of the nominees to make an informed decision, or in the case of some of the artistic categories we freely admit to simply lacking the required level of expertise. Which is any level really!

Streaming & Video

 

In previous years the CCMA have been broadcast by VH1, but this year have made the move to the CW Network. This network isn't broadcast live online anywhere that we can find (please contact us if you know different) but there is a streaming section on their website that we would expect to have a copy of the show posted on afterwards:

CW Network Watch Now

One interesting feature this year is that the BFCA have joined with GoWatchIt to create an online channel where you can watch all the nominated movies - check it out here:

Go Watch It Critics Choice Movie Awards

This is an excellent idea which should catch on with some of the other big awards.

Hotels & Accommodation

 

If you're in Santa Monica for the awards and looking for somewhere to stay you can search for hotels, check availability and make reservations for local hotels here.
