The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) has announced the nominees for the 20th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. The winners will be revealed at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, which will broadcast live on A&E from the Hollywood Palladium on January 15th at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT, the day the Academy Award nominations are announced.  This is the first year that the BFCA will partner with A&E to broadcast the show. Legendary Super Bowl Champion Michael Strahan will serve as the show’s host. Strahan is the co-host of the popular morning talk show “LIVE with Kelly and Michael,” and an Emmy-nominated “Fox NFL Sunday” analyst.  He also serves as special co-host for ABC’s top-rated morning program, “Good Morning America.” “I am excited to host a night honoring some of the most talented people in the industry,” said Strahan. “‘The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards’ show paves the way for the upcoming awards season, and the best part is that the winners are selected by the very people who make a living watching and reviewing films. It doesn't get much more competitive than that.” As announced previously, Kevin Costner, Ron Howard and Jessica Chastain will each receive special honors at the ceremony.  Costner, winner of two Academy Awards® and a Primetime Emmy® Award, will be honored with the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ celebrating more than three decades of incredible work in film. The LOUIS XIII Critics’ Choice Genius Award, established to honor an icon who has demonstrated unprecedented excellence in the cinematic arts, will be presented to multiple award-winning director, producer and actor Ron Howard.  Chastain will receive the inaugural ‘Critics’ Choice MVP Award,’ which recognizes an extraordinary actor for their work in several standout movies throughout a single year.  She is being saluted for starring in the films Interstellar, Miss Julie, A Most Violent Year (which also earned her a nomination this year), and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. “Birdman” leads this year with thirteen nominations including Best Picture, Michael Keaton for Best Actor and Best Actor in a Comedy, Edward Norton for Best Supporting Actor, Emma Stone for Best Supporting Actress, Best Acting Ensemble, Alejandro G. Inarritu for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Editing, Best Comedy, and Best Score. “The Grand Budapest Hotel” also impressed with eleven nominations, which include Best Picture, Ralph Fiennes for Best Actor and Best Actor in a Comedy, Tony Revolori for Best Young Actor/Actress, Best Acting Ensemble, Wes Anderson for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Costume Design and Best Comedy. “Boyhood” was nominated for eight awards including Best Picture, Ethan Hawke for Best Supporting Actor, Patricia Arquette for Best Supporting Actress, Ellar Coltrane for Best Young Actor/Actress, Best Acting Ensemble, Richard Linklater for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, and Best Editing. “Interstellar” earned seven nominations, followed by “Gone Girl” and “The Imitation Game” each with six.  “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Into The Woods,” “Selma,” and “The Theory of Everything” were each nominated for five awards, while “Edge of Tomorrow,” “Inherent Vice,” “St. Vincent,” “Unbroken” and “Whiplash” are each in the running for four. “It’s been a great year for movies,” said BFCA President Joey Berlin.  “Filmmakers have demonstrated that riveting, magical and provocative stories can be told in an incredible range of styles and techniques.  The members of the BFCA and our new partners at A&E are proud to salute wonderful films and performances in the traditional categories and a wide variety of popular genres including Comedy, Action and Sci-Fi/Horror.  Audiences love all kinds of movies – and so do we.” “The Critics' Choice Movie Awards” are bestowed annually by the BFCA to honor the finest in cinematic achievement. The BFCA is the largest film critics' organization in the United States and Canada, representing almost 300 television, radio and online critics. BFCA members are the primary source of information for today's film-going public.  Historically, the “Critics' Choice Movie Awards” are the most accurate predictor of the Academy Award nominations.
