VH1 will air the 17th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards live on Thursday, January 12 at 8pm ET/PT. The Critics' Choice Movie Awards is the first televised movie awards show of the year.
Comedic duo Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer will host the show and VH1 You Oughta Know artists Fitz and The Tantrums will rock the stage as the evenings house band. Hugo director Martin Scorsese will receive the 2012 Critics' Choice Music+Film Award. Selected by the Broadcast Film Critics Association Board of Directors, the Music+Film Award honors a single filmmaker who has touched audiences through cinematic storytelling and has heightened the impact of films through the brilliant use of source and original music.
The Critics' Choice Movie Awards are bestowed annually by the BFCA to honor the finest in cinematic achievement. Since its inception in 1995, the Critics' Choice Movie Awards has been a star-studded bellwether event of the movie awards season. The BFCA consistently picks nominees and winners that go on to garner more Academy Award® nominations and wins than the Golden Globes® or any other movie awards shows.
