Arm Chair Critics Unite – the Official Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Nominees Announced – What Say You?

It’s interesting to see all the commentary by my Facebook friends on who’s going to this movie, or could you believe how horrible that movie was and then to be at events like this, where a group like the BFCA make talking about how good a movie is – an official event.

The Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards, also known as the Critics’ Choice Awards, are bestowed by the Broadcast Film Critics Association to honor the finest in cinematic achievement at the annual Critics’ Choice Awards ceremony in January. The awards are currently broadcast live on the VH1 television network.

This year’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards ceremony will take place on January 12, 2012 at the Hollywood Palladium. Mingle Media TV is hoping to be there on the Red Carpet reporting – so stay tuned!!
