T.J. Miller Will Be Hosting The Critics’ Choice Awards in Just a Few Hours
The broadcast is live on A&E and it might be worth switching back and forth between the democratic presidential candidate debate.
Amy Schumer to Receive Critics’ Choice MVP Award
(via The Wrap)
Actor are players, so it works, right?
Though Amy Schumer didn’t get a Golden Globe for her unfiltered romantic comedy Trainwreck, she will be getting a special distinction with The Critics’ Choice MP Award. The Critics Choice covers both TV and movies, so the honor is well deserved for Schumer between Inside Amy Schumer, Trainwreck and her HBO special.
Anyone taking bets on whether Schumer will do a bit with Jennifer Lawrence while she’s accepting her award?
Watch These Promos for TJ Miller Hosting the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards
Do keep in mind that they will be broadcast live on Sun. Jan. 17th at 5PM PST on A&E, which we have no doubt that TJ will take advantage of.
Trainwreck, Spy, Transparent, You’re The Worst Are All Comedy Nominees for 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards
The Big Short, though debatable as to whether it’s a comedy, is getting plenty of love this awards season as a comedy. That being said, Paul Feig’s Spy, Stephen Falk’s You’re The Worst, Trainwreck with Amy Schumer, Aziz Ansari’s Master of None, Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s BoJack Horseman, and Will Forte’s Last Man on Earth, getting nods from The Critics Choice are much appreciated.
As you’d expect, Transparent from Jill Soloway continues to be an awards nominations powerhouse, but it’s also a pleasant surprise to see Rachel Bloom for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan’s Catastrophe, the movie Dope, and The Late Late Show with James Corden.

T.J. Miller to Host 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards
(via The Wrap)
For those of you that think Ricky Gervais was going to do something crazy returning as host of The Golden Globes, you probably have no idea what crazy thing Miller is going to do as host of The Critics’ Choice Awards.
T.J. Miller has hosted numerous shows (Mash-Up, Crunchie Awards, and The Golden Trailer Awards to name a few) both as himself and a blue demon and in pretty much every case it’s been an experience that Miller can only conjure up.
That’s why we’re glad to hear that he’s getting bigger and bigger profile awards show to host like The Critics’ Choice Awards, which will encapsulate both The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and The Critics’ Choice TV Awards. The ceremony is set to broadcast on Sun. Jan .17th on A&E, Lifetime, and LMN at 5PM PST.
Critics’ Choice Awards Also Have Birdman and Grand Budapest Hotel Racking Up Nominations
Birdman and Grand Budapest Hotel have already been gathering up a lot of nominations at The Golden Globes and The SAG Awards and the 20th Annual Critics Choice Awards are no different. Between the two, they stacked 24 nominations in various categories, Birdman with 13 and Grand Budapest Hotel with 11.
There’s a weird genre fragmentation at The Critics’ Choice Awards that has gotten both films nominated for Best Picture and Best Comedy. Top Five, 22 Jump Street, St. Vincent, Chef, Neighbors, Obvious Child, The Skeleton Twins, Edge of Tomorrow, Inherent Vice, Guardians of the Galaxy, and The Lego Movie also all got nominations in Comedy and Action categories.
Despite how continually odd it is that awards put drama above everything, Birdman and Grand Budapest Hotel give some hope that there might be happening less and less in the future.
The Critics Choice Awards will be televised live at A&E 6PM PST on Jan. 15th and hosted by Michael Strahan.
Morning Debriefing 6/20/11
“Enter JAIME LANNISTER, an important member of the 92,924,024-person cast. He has just finished elaborately sexing a glimmering satyr with his shimmering be-amuleted penis. P.S. There are 356,753,103 satyrs in this show. They are half-horse/half-sexy horse.”
4) The march for the Onion getting a Pulitzer via their own grassroots organization AFAJP continues with the celebrity backing of Arianna Huffington, Tom Hanks, and Mario Batali. I wonder what Literally Unbelievable will makes of this.
5) Louis CK doesn’t want his show to go on forever. [via Caroline’s on Broadway]

15) As Tracy Morgan’s booked Carnegie Hall because of his credits and now taking into his consideration his latest unfiltered spewing of hate-filled nonsense, I take it that it’s currently much harder to book Largo at the Coronet Theatre in LA.
