THE CW TO BROADCAST THE "CRITICS' CHOICE MOVIE AWARDS" AND "CRITICS' CHOICE TELEVISION AWARDS" IN 2014

September 16, 2013 (Burbank, CA) - The CW Television Network has partnered with the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) to broadcast the 19th annual "Critics' Choice Movie Awards" for the second consecutive year, and also the 4th annual "Critics' Choice Television Awards" in 2014, it was announced today by Joey Berlin, BFCA/BTJA President and John Maatta, Executive Vice President, The CW.

This marks the first time that the "Critics' Choice Television Awards," which takes place in June, will be broadcast in its entirety in primetime.

The 19th annual "Critics' Choice Movie Awards" gala is slated to air on January 16, 2014, and the nominees will be announced on Monday, December 16, 2013. Locations and hosts for the "Critics' Choice Movie Awards" and the "Critics' Choice Television Awards" will be announced at a later date.

"We are thrilled to expand our partnership with The CW to include the 'Critics' Choice Television Awards' in addition to the 'Critics' Choice Movie Awards," said Berlin. "We believe the phenomenal success of our Movie Awards show on The CW last year was a harbinger of great things to come. Hosting our star-studded event on January 16th - the day the Academy Award nominations are announced and the world is focused on Hollywood - again guarantees that the 'Critics' Choice Movie Awards' celebration will be a must-see highlight of the awards season. And the 'Critics' Choice Television Awards' is poised to become as important to TV audiences as it is already to the TV industry."

"We're very happy to once again be the broadcast home of the 'Critics' Choice Movie Awards,' and to add the 'Critics' Choice Television Awards' to our schedule this season, continuing The CW's commitment to more event programming throughout the year," said Maatta. "With the biggest stars in movies and TV, the 'Critics' Choice Movie Awards' and the 'Critics' Choice Television Awards' are fantastic broadcast events for The CW as we keep adding more original hours to our primetime schedule."

The Critics' Choice Awards are bestowed annually by the BFCA and BTJA to honor the finest in cinematic and television achievement. The BFCA is the largest film critics' organization in the United States and Canada, representing more than 280 television, radio and online critics. 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. BTJA is the collective voice of almost 100 journalists who regularly cover television for TV viewers, radio listeners and online audiences.

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:

Amy Adams, Ben Affleck, Judd Apatow, Christian Bale, Kathryn Bigelow, Jack Black, Jessica Chastain, George Clooney, Bradley Cooper, Marion Cotillard, Daniel Day-Lewis, Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Tommy Lee Jones, Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey, Joaquin Phoenix, Steven Spielberg and Rebel Wilson.

Historically, the Critics' Choice Movie Awards are the most accurate predictor of the Academy Award nominations.

The 19th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards will be produced by Bob Bain Productions and Berlin Entertainment.

The BFCA and Berlin Entertainment were represented by Dan Black of Greenberg Traurig.
