We are proud of our role in helping audiences find the best movies – culminating in the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards in January.” The 235 members of the BFCA, the largest film critics’ organization in the United States and Canada, representing television, radio and online critics, selected nominees in each of 25 categories. The awards are bestowed annually to honor the finest in cinematic achievement. Eligible films were released in 2009. The accounting firm of Gregory A. Mogab tallied the written ballots. Historically, the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards are the most accurate predictor of the Academy Award nominations. Today, VH1 also announces the launch of its Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Web site at The site offers movie fans detailed information about the show and this year’s nominees. The site also gives users a chance to weigh in on who they think should rise to the top in each Critics’ Choice category.
