The Critics’ Choice Television Awards and Critics’ Choice Movie Awards have announced a major change in their procedures, combining the two sets of awards into a single ceremony.
The combined ceremony is set for Jan. 17, 2016, when it will be simulcast live on A&E, Lifetime and LMN.
The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards have been going for 20 years, presented by the Broadcast Film Critics Association. The TV Awards are a relative newcomer, with five years under their belt. The TV Awards are bestowed by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, an offshoot of the BFCA.
