Announcement by Joey Berlin – BFCA President/BTJA President – 9/30/15

Having done this year’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards show and the Critics’ Choice Television Awards show with our new television partner A&E Networks, the BFCA and its sister organization, the Broadcast Television Journalists Association – or BTJA – have all come to the conclusion that the time has come to combine the shows into one. So on Sunday night, January 17th, we’re going back to our old name and simply presenting the 21st annual Critics’ Choice Awards gala. BFCA and BTJA members will make all the nominations and vote for all the winners in the same categories as we have in the past and we’ll be presenting all the major film and television categories live on air in one glamorous and star-studded TV special.

A&E has strongly encouraged BFCA and BTJA to combine their awards shows into one super-show and thinks so much of the idea that it has decided to trimulcast the January 17th Critics’ Choice Awards show on A&E, Lifetime and LMN. This marks the first time the show has been seen live on more than one channel and the first time it will be seen on a Sunday night. To celebrate all this great work properly, the main show will run three hours long, preceded by a live one-hour Red Carpet Pre-Show.

Film and TV awards together in one three-hour show – yes, there will be similarities to the Golden Globes. But we believe it’s meaningful in this age of such abundant high quality film and television for BFCA and BTJA – made up of America’s leading film and television critics and reporters – to offer their well-informed assessments of the best in popular entertainment. While the Critics’ Choice Awards traditionally foreshadow the Oscars and the Emmys, our voters are perhaps less star-struck and a bit savvier than our foreign peers. While the Globes have long been the party of the year, we believe the Critics’ Choice Awards are a little smarter, a little more in touch with American and Canadian tastes, and ultimately more useful to the viewers and ticket buyers.

The 21st annual Critics’ Choice Awards show will again be produced by Bob Bain Productions. WME and Dan Black of Greenberg Traurig put the deal together.

Get 2 PHX screening passes to 99 HOMES via the 99 GOOD DEEDS INITIATIVE


Phoenix Rescue Mission and Other Charitable Organizations in 20 Cities Around U.S. to Benefit

Broad Green Pictures announces the launch of 99 Homes: 99 Good Deeds, a charitable initiative to encourage individuals to perform one good deed to help a member of their community and to underscore the positive impact that even the smallest amounts of assistance can have. The launch comes just ahead of the release of the studio’s upcoming film 99 Homes debuting in theatres on Sept. 25, expanding nationwide Oct. 9. In collaboration with local organizations in 20 cities throughout the United States, Broad Green Pictures will perform 99 good deeds.

In Phoenix, Broad Green Pictures has partnered with non-profit charity Phoenix Rescue Mission. To prepare for the holiday season, the Mission is in desperate need of food, water, blankets, clothing, shoes, sleeping bags and monetary donations.

To help with this effort, the studio will donate 99 (admit two) passes for the advance screening on October 5th to be given to the first 99 people to donate. Broad Green Pictures will also host a canned food drive at the screening where people who bring at least one canned food item will be entered to win a 99 Homes prize pack including promo items from the film, a medium popcorn to enjoy during the screening and two VIP tickets to a future screening of one of their upcoming films.
