The June 19 broadcast from the Beverly Hilton Hotel will mark the first time the CCTAs will be broadcast live on network television.
Best known for the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, now going into its 20th year, the Broadcast Film Critics Association established the Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) and the Critics’ Choice Television Awards in 2011 on behalf of television journalists working in electronic media to celebrate outstanding work in television. In addition to honoring the best shows and performers from the previous season, the Critics’ Choice Television Awards also spotlights the Most Exciting New Series premiering in the coming months, judging from pilots and early episodes.
One of the best parts of the Critics’ Choice Television Awards is that are CW stars are in attendance and are, usually, nominated for our shows! We can’t wait to see the nominees for this year’s awards and we hope that our stars and shows win over the critics’ hearts!
Tune in to the Critics’ Choice Television Awards on Thursday, June 19th on CW44!
