21st Critics’ Choice Movie Awards- Predictions

Possibly the most ignored of the major precursors, the Critics’ Choice Awards still have quite a big say on who will be a hit with the Academy. This year, for the first time ever, they are combining the Movie and TV awards into one mega show, a la the Golden Globes and SAG Awards. I feel that this is a mistake, as the Movie Awards are still too long as it is, and the TV awards is the only real precursor to the Emmys that people actually care about, considering that it includes all the shows up for Emmy consideration, and is held just a couple of months before the main ceremony. At this stage, it’s probably too difficult to predict the TV awards, so lets do the Movie awards, but only a select number of categories, as some are being got rid of so they can fit in the TV awards. This is just a first draft, a first stab at who will be nominated. It will become clearer once GoldDerby open up the Predictions Centre for the Critics Choice Awards.
