The Critics Choice Association has announced its dates for upcoming awards ceremonies and celebrations, which will occur in person.
First and foremost, the 28th edition of the Critics Choice Awards will take place on January 15, 2023, at the Fairmont Century Plaza and will air on The CW from 7 to 10pm EST. No hosts have currently been announced. However, per a press release, the ceremony will “continue its combined film and television awards format honoring the best in cinematic, televised, and streaming achievement.”
The 7th Annual Critics Choice Documentary Awards will take place on November 13, 2022, at the Edison Ballroom in Manhattan. Deadline for submissions are on September 16th, while nominations for the ceremony will be announced on October 17th.
Regarding celebrations, the 5th annual Celebration of Black Cinema & Television will occur on December 5th at the Fairmont Century Plaza, while the 2nd annual Celebration of Latino Cinema & Television will also occur at the Fairmont Century Plaza, but on October 7th. It will be the first time the Celebration of Latino Cinema & Television will have an in-person event.
The Critics Choice Association is also introducing its inaugural Celebration of Asian Pacific Cinema & Television, occurring at the Fairmont Century Plaza on November 4th. From the press release, the event is being described as follows, “With noteworthy performances in projects such as Everything Everywhere All at Once, Turning Red, Squid Game, Pachinko, Never Have I Ever, Station Eleven, and many more, there has never been a better time to launch the inaugural Celebration of Asian Pacific Cinema & Television.”
In a statement, CEO of the Critics Choice Awards Joey Berlin said that the events are “truly […] an embarrassment of riches. We’re thrilled the Critics Choice Awards is returning to its original January date on The CW and has become more popular than ever before. Our Documentary Awards receives more and more submissions every year. And as the CCA membership has grown over the last year and become even more diverse, it gives us great pleasure to respond accordingly with the expansion of our portfolio of events. The addition of our inaugural Celebration of Asian Pacific Cinema & Television along with the success of last year’s first Celebration of Latino Cinema and the 5th year milestone of our Celebration of Black Cinema & Television allows us to continue honoring the finest achievements in front of and behind the camera, and shine a light on underrepresented and underappreciated storytellers.”
