And let me tell 'ya, forget the Golden Globes...when it comes to predicting the Oscars? The Critics' Choice Movie Awards is waaaay better!

Click here to see the nominees of the Critics' Choice Movie Awards, and here for the VH1 complete coverage.

Here's the latest EXCLUSIVE from VH1 about the Critics' Choice Movie Awards...and don't forget to watch!

The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards isn’t known for drama. It’s known for its uncanny tendency to predict Oscar winners. That’s why Adam Lambert and Sarah Silverman presenting an award together at the show might feel like a wolf pack of two casing a herd of fenced-in sheep. Need we remind you that “Good Morning America” recently cut an upcoming Adam Lambert performance after his same sex AMAs kiss? Remember Sarah dissing both Paris Hilton and Hollywood at the MTV Movie Awards? Now we have two of America’s most provocative mainstream personalities on the same stage at the same time talking to a captive group of Hollywood’s elite. And we haven’t even mentioned that Tracy Morgan is also presenting!

Additional higlights of the show: Nick Jonas & The Administration will serve as the Critics’ Choice house band; special tribute will be paid to recently deceased director John Hughes by John Krasinski, Amy Poehler and Death Cab for Cutie, which will perform “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” from “The Breakfast Club”; and Kevin Bacon will be presented with a philanthropic award by no less than Meryl Streep. Additional presenters include Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Kristen Bell, Emily Blunt, Cedric the Entertainer, Bradley Cooper, Rob Corddry, Abbie Cornish, Josh Duhamel, Zac Efron, Vera Farmiga, Heather Graham, Ed Helms, Samuel L. Jackson, Ken Jeong, Tobey Maguire, Amy Poehler, Craig Robinson, Zoe Saldana and Susan Sarandon.

Hosted by Kristin Chenoweth, Critics’ Choice will air live on VH1 Friday, Jan. 15 at 9:00PM ET. Check back here as we live-blog the show with our partner sites, including AOL’s Moviefone, The Envelope, The Huffington Post, BestWeekEver and fashion experts Refinery29. Sign up below for an e-mail reminder for our Critics’ Choice Live Blog Party.

Why "Twilight" Producers Think "Breaking Dawn" Could Begin Shooting This Fall 


Many twihards have been wondering when the fourth installment of the super-popular "Twilight" franchise will go on production. Well, apparently, scriptwriter Melissa Rosenberg (who wrote all the "Twilight" films) is currently busy adapting "Breaking Dawn" and producers believe the film could being shooting this fall.

But there are two bigger questions -- first, will the fourth film be divided into two parts ala "Harry Potter" and second, how will the character Renesmee be portrayed?

For die-hard "Twilight" book lovers, they all know that Renesmee is the half-human/half-vampire daughter of Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) who grows super-quick than the average human kid.

Wyck Godfrey, one of the producers of the "Twilight" films said the answer to the Renesmee dilemma lies in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."
