I am a longtime member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, a group representing more than 300 critics in the U.S. and Canada, and today the organization announced nominees for the 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards. As usual, some of my personal favorites made the cut and others did not (I’m only one voter among hundreds). Regardless of my personal preferences, it’s a strong field of movies, and you can use the nominee list (below) to seek out the best in film. This year’s awards are slated for broadcast Jan. 17 at 5 p.m. (PT) on A&E, Lifetime and LMN. This event will be particularly special because — for the first time — the movie awards are being combined with honors doled out by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association.
NOMINATIONS FOR THE 21st ANNUAL CRITICS CHOICE AWARDS
The Big Short
Bridge of Spies
Mad Max: Fury Road
“The Grand Budapest Hotel” won the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for best comedy.
The 20th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards were handed out at the Hollywood Palladium Thursday, Jan. 15. The show was broadcast live on A&E, but as a longtime member of the presenting organization — The Broadcast Film Critics Association — I received a couple tickets. The life of an entertainment journalist (particularly one who spends much of his time teaching) is relatively low on glitz and glamour, but it’s nice to spend at least one night a year checking out the sights and sounds in Hollywood.
Traditionally, the Critics’ Choice Awards have been a good predictor of the movies and filmmakers who go on to win Oscars. Of course, that’s not always the case. For instance, “The Lego Movie” won the Critics’ Choice award for best animated feature Thursday, but did not receive an Oscar nomination.
Following is the full list of winners …
The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards are broadcast live at 6 p.m. (PT) today (Jan. 15) on A&E. Be sure to tune in.

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.
