Nominations in both film and TV will be announced Dec. 10.

The 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards will take place Sunday, Jan. 13, and will once again air live on The CW Network from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. The Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association will hand out awards in both film and TV, with the show to air live from 7 to 10 p.m. on the East Coast and tape-delayed on the West Coast.

“The BFCA and BTJA are delighted to continue our successful partnership with The CW,” BFCA president Joey Berlin said in announcing the date. Added Gaye Hirsch, executive vp development for The CW, “We’re thrilled to serve once again as the exclusive home of the Critics’ Choice Awards, and to help honor some of the biggest stars in film and television. “The CCA is one of the most anticipated events in Hollywood, and we’re delighted to partner with the BFCA and BTJA again this year to share the star-studded celebration with our viewers.”

The BFCA bills itself as the largest film critics' organization in the United States and Canada, representing more than 300 television, radio and online critics. BTJA comprises journalists who regularly cover television for TV viewers, radio listeners and online audiences.

The awards show will be produced by Bob Bain Productions and Berlin Entertainment. The BFCA and BTJA are represented by WME and Dan Black of Greenberg Traurig.

The BFCA and BTJA also announced timelines for the upcoming awards season.
