Here Are The 2021 Critics Choice Awards Nominations!


It’s been a busy morning, as far as the Awards Season is concerned.  The Critics Choice Award nominations have been announced!  Usually, I feel safe ignoring the Critics Choice Awards but this year, they could be important because the Golden Globes will not be televised, leaving a void that the Critics Choice Awards are hoping to fill.

The Critics Choice Awards will be stepping into the void on January 9th, 2022.
