Critics Choice Television Awards 2014 Update

May 9, 2014 in btja

The network broadcast has been announced, Cedric The Entertainer has been selected as Host, and the Nominating Committees have begun deliberations in advance of the 4th annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards. Nominations will be revealed on May 28th and the star-studded awards gala will be televised live on The CW Television Network at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on June 19th from the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

All BTJA members in good standing are entitled to one free ticket plus one free guest ticket to the awards ceremony. These tickets are not transferable. Additional tickets for BTJA member guests are available for $500, half off the regular price of $1,000 per seat.

Please RSVP directly to me by email ( or by calling BTJA at 310-860-2665 by Monday, June 2nd.

For the first time we are asking that, to remain a member in good standing and be eligible for tickets to CCTA, all members please send in annual BTJA dues of $100 before June 2nd. For the first three years of its existence, BTJA members have not been asked to pay dues and BFCA (BTJA’s parent organization) has footed the bill for the CCTA events, which have averaged a deficit of $60,000 per year. But now that BTJA has been successfully established and will see its awards show broadcast nationally in 2014 for the first time, the BFCA Board and the BTJA Executive Committee have agreed that BTJA members should join their BFCA peers and help share the costs of running the organization and staging its awards show.

BTJA dues should be paid to BFCA (BTJA’s parent organization) and mailed to: 9220 Sunset Boulevard, Suite 220, LA, CA 90069. Members of both BFCA and BTJA are asked to pay $100 dues for each.

The BFCA Board is sensitive to the fragile financial position that some members find themselves in. Traditionally, members who report that they cannot afford to pay dues have their dues payment waived upon request.

Finally, to arrange for press credentials to cover the CCTA gala, please contact: Andy Gelb at Slate PR by email ( or by calling 310-461-0111.

Onward and upward!
