Plot Synopsis

Each year since 1996, the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) has honored the finest in cinematic achievement from the previous calendar year. Originally known simply as the CRITICS' CHOICE AWARDS, the BFCA changed the name of this awards program in 2011 to CRITICS' CHOICE MOVIE AWARDS, because the organization began conferring awards in television in a separate ceremony the following year. In 2016, the BFCA combined its movie and television awards into a single event called the CRITICS' CHOICE AWARDS. In recent years, the BFCA began conferring two special awards to honor career achievements and philanthropy: the LOUIS XIII Genius Award, which recognizes "an unprecedented demonstration of excellence in the cinematic arts"; and the Joel Siegel Award, which, as a tribute to founding BFCA member Joel Siegel, "spotlights the leadership role so many great stars undertake to help solve the world's most pressing problems."

On Sunday, January 12, 2020 from 7-10pm ET (live)/PT (tape delay), The CW presented a live broadcast of the 25th Annual CRITICS' CHOICE AWARDS, hosted again by Taye Diggs at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.

The Association of National Advertisers (ANA) and The CW Network partner at the 24th Annual Critics' Choice Awards to honor actress, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Kristen Bell with the fourth annual #SeeHer Award. The #SeeHer Award recognizes a woman who embodies the values set forth by the #SeeHer movement -- to push boundaries on changing stereotypes and recognize the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape. Viola Davis received the inaugural #SeeHer Award, with subsequent winners including Gal Gadot (2018) and Claire Foy (2019).

Eddie Murphy receives this year's Critics' Choice Lifetime Achievement Award.
