As a founding and voting member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA), I’m happy to report that our organization of America’s most influential film critics is thriving after 15 years of existence.
We’re partners with VH1, which airs our Critics’ Choice Awards every January (stay tuned!), and we’ve teamed up with them to announce our choices for this summer’s hottest and most anticipated movies and performances of the summer blockbuster season. The Broadcast Film Critics Association is the largest film critic’s organization in the United States and Canada, representing more than 200 television, radio, and online critics. Since its inception in 1995, the Critics’ Choice Awards has become a star-studded bellwether event of the movie awards season. The BFCA consistently picks nominees and winners that go on to garner more Academy Award nominations and wins than any other movie awards show.
In other words, we want to help all you movie fans out there to narrow down your choices to the ones most likely to be talked about straight into awards season. The three categories that the BFCA critics’ voted on are below, along with the top results in each category.
– “Star Trek”
– “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”
– “Away We Go”
– “500 Days of Summer”
– “The Hurt Locker”
Outstanding Performances of the Summer:
– Johnny Depp in “Public Enemies”
– Meryl Streep in “Julie and Julia”
– Brad Pitt in “Inglorious Basterds”
