So it’s hot news from the Critics Choice Awards. Chelsea Handler has agreed to host the show on the CW Network set for January 15th, 2023.
Handler is a big ‘get’ for the CCAs, which are on the upswing in the last couple of years as one of the few awards shows with integrity. There are about 500 members of the CCA, all vetted professionals and multicultural to say the least.
“We are thrilled to have Chelsea Handler joining us at the 28th annual Critics Choice Awards,” said CCA CEO Joey Berlin. “We all know and love her work as a standup comedian, a best-selling author, a podcast host, and actress – and now as host of the Critics Choice Awards! I know this will be the best year yet and can’t wait for everyone to see what we have in store.”
More and more the CCAs have grown to be an Oscar predictor, as well. Also, this year, the Critics Choice Association will also hold the 5th annual Celebration of Black Cinema & Television on December 5, 2022 at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel, the 2nd annual Celebration of Latino Cinema & Television on November 13, 2022 at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel and the inaugural Celebration of Asian Pacific Cinema & Television on November 4, 2022 at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel.
