Critics' choice

The Broadcast Film Critics Association will be holding their 18th annual Critics’ Choice Awards this year on Jan. 10 at 6 p.m. You can watch it live right here on KWGN.

Our very own Chris Parente is a member of the BFCA, and will be broadcasting live from the event in the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif.

“Lincoln” is looking to score big at this year’s awards, receiving a record-setting 13 nominations, including nods for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress. The 13 nominations beats out previous record holder “Black Swan,” which had 12 nominations in 2011.

“Les Misérables” just missed logging 12 nominations. The musical adaptation received mentions in the Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Acting Ensemble categories.

The only other film to receives double digit nominations was “Silver Linings Playbook,” which came in with 10.
