It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, silly, we’re not talking about the holidays; who can concentrate on those when it’s officially Awards Season? While we’re still a month or so away from learning who the nominees for the 82nd Annual Oscars will be, the awards race was jumpstarted this morning when we announced the list of actors, actresses and films that were chosen as the nominees for the 2011 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. This program, which will air live on VH1 on Friday, January 14 at 9pm ET, has developed a reputation as being the most accurate predictor of Academy Award nominations of any award show out there. And, as you’ll see from the complete list of 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards nominees, the evening promises to be a star-studded affair with many interesting subplots that will make a huge difference once the Oscars roll around. Follow along as we highlight the Top Five Races To Watch For at this year’s ceremony!
