Longtime readers know that I am a voting member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA), which hosts the nationally televised Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. Each year, the BFCA (consisting of more than 280 television, radio and online critics) honors the best in film. Our nomination ballots were cast Friday and tallied over the weekend. That means the nominees represent a critical consensus from the group.
Next, BFCA members will vote for our favorites among these nominees. Winners will be crowned live Jan. 16 at our awards show in Santa Monica, Calif. The show will be broadcast on The CW Network at 8 p.m. PT/ET.
Following is a complete list of nominees:
