Broadcast Film Critics Love "Hugo," "The Artist!" Andy Serkis Scores Acting Nod! Check Out Full Nominations of Critics' Choice Movie Awards! 


The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) has announced the nominees for the 17th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards. I'm a proud voting member of the BFCA and 250 of us turned in our ballots last Sunday. And honestly? I'm very happy with the final nominations. "The Artist" and "Hugo" led the pack with 11 nominations each including Best Picture. "The Help" and "Drive" received 8 nominations each, while "The Descendants" and "War Horse" gathered 7 nods a piece.

My favorite part of the nominations? Andy Serkis, the heart of any movie he's starred in, finally received a nomination for his wonderful performance in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes!" Motion Capture be damned! Serkis was brilliant in the film!

Winners will be announced live on VH1 on Thursday, January 12th at 8pm ET/PT, and I will be attending!
