Will the Critics' Choice TV Awards Matter?
The journalist group aims to become the indispensable Emmy forecaster.
Broadcast Film Critics Association president Joey Berlin thinks the Critics' Choice awards of his new offshoot group, the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, will do for the Emmy race what the BFCA's Critics' Choice Movie Awards have done for the Oscar race: shape it by predicting it. The Critics' Choice movie awards are by some measures among the most accurate precursor of the Oscars -- better than the Golden Globes or the Screen Actors Guild Awards. "Since 1995, only two movies were ever nominated for best picture without getting a Critics' Choice nomination first," says Berlin. "The best thing you can do if you want an Oscar is to get a Critics' Choice nomination. Now the Emmys have a precursor too."
