Critics Choice Awards Swoops in and Takes Golden Globes Date for January, Oscars Next to Move Up?


Nature abhors a vacuum. And now that the Golden Globes are off the schedule, in come the Critics Choice Awards.

Formerly the Broadcast Critics, the CCA is swooping in and taking Sunday, January 9th to present its statues. Comprising both movies and TV the CCA has plenty of members of all colors and creeds, and they are all accredited journalists.

The show will air on the CW Network from 7 to 10pm that night. In the past few years it’s been coming from the Santa Monica Airport hangar, but it’s possible it could be moved up to the Beverly Hilton ballroom since it’s available.

Next up will be some kind of announcement moving the Academy Awards up from late February. My guess is they go for no later than the first Sunday in February. We’ll see.
