With our big event falling on the very day that Oscar nominations are announced, we know everyone is going to be watching our star-studded celebration of the biggest and best movies of the year."

"As host of the '18th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards,' The CW gets the opportunity to throw one of the first major events of the Hollywood awards season with all of the biggest, A-list stars right here on our network," said Sherman. "We're working very closely with the BFCA to give this telecast a cool, current party vibe that both celebrates the year's best films and fits perfectly with our young adult brand."

BFCA members are the primary source of information for today's film going public. The very first opinion a moviegoer hears about new releases at the multiplex or the art house usually comes from one of its members.

Since its inception in 1995, the Critics' Choice Movie Awards has been a must-attend bellwether event of the movie awards season. Among the attendees at last year's show were George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron, Bob Dylan, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg.
