There are a number of multiple award nominees, led by Alfonso Cuarón who could take home four awards for his work on “Roma” including Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Editing.  Bradley Cooper is nominated for his first turn as director for “A Star Is Born” along with nods for Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay.  In the latter two categories, Cooper is up against Spike Lee for “BlacKkKlansman.”    Adam McKay’s work on “Vice” earned him nominations for both Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.  Several actors have been recognized in multiple categories this year including Christian Bale for “Vice,” Emily Blunt for “Mary Poppins Returns,” Olivia Colman for “The Favourite,” and newcomer Elsie Fisher for “Eighth Grade.”  Costume Designer Sandy Powell is nominated for her creations for “The Favourite” and “Mary Poppins Returns.”

In the television field, Julia Garner is nominated for her roles in both “Dirty John” and “Ozark.”

Amy Adams stands out as a nominee in both film and television for her roles in “Vice” and “Sharp Objects,” respectively.

HBO and Netflix lead the networks with 20 nominations each, followed by FX with 17, Amazon with 12, and NBC with 11.  Topping the list of nominated series are The Americans (FX), The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (FX), and Escape at Dannemora (Showtime) with five each.  The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon) and Sharp Objects (HBO) follow close behind with four nominations.  A Very English Scandal (Amazon), Atlanta (FX), Barry (HBO), Better Call Saul (AMC), Genius: Picasso (National Geographic), The Good Place (NBC), Homecoming (Amazon), Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert (NBC), Killing Eve (BBC America), One Day at a Time (Netflix), and The Tale (HBO) all received three nominations.  Other multi-nominated series include Dirty John (Bravo), The Good Doctor (ABC), The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu), The Kominsky Method (Netflix), Notes from the Field (HBO), Pose (FX), Succession (HBO), This Is Us (NBC), Will & Grace (NBC), and Young Sheldon (CBS) each with two nominations. 

“The films of 2018 have been some of the most culturally impactful in recent history,” said BFCA President Joey Berlin.  “They’ve portrayed stories from every walk of life, from all different perspectives, and have touched audiences and inspired conversations that we will continue to have for years to come.  We are so excited to have the opportunity to celebrate all of them, and the people who made them, on January 13 on The CW!” 

“The extraordinary wealth of talent and growing number of platforms makes narrowing down each television category an unenviable task,” said BTJA President Ed Martin.  “Despite that, we are thrilled with this year’s nominees and look forward to recognizing their outstanding achievements.”

Fred Saxon

October 9th, 2018

Longtime BFCA member Fred Saxon, a fixture on San Diego television for nearly two decades, Fred died on Sept. 27th of a heart attack. He was 76.

“Fred was a vital, genuine, multi-dimensional ball of energy,” said Lori Dang Saxon, his partner who frequently accompanied Fred to screenings, press junkets and the Critics Choice Awards. “Best of all, he was a good guy with a kind heart.”

“Fred was extremely bright and a wealth of information about Hollywood,” said friend and fellow critic Steve Oldfield. “He was so humble and unassuming, I’m sure many on the junket circuit had no idea everything he had accomplished.”

Fred was CNN’s first Hollywood-based entertainment reporter, where he produced and hosted his own show. He was a featured contributor on the Tonight Show and reported by satellite for two programs in Australia. Fred covered entertainment for San Diego’s KUSI for nine years and also worked for three other stations in the market. In 1994, he received the Emmy Award for ‘Outstanding Achievement’ in the Performance/News category and received his second Emmy in 2002 for his “Fred Saxon’s Inside Entertainment,” which he produced for FOX 6 San Diego (the former XETV).

Fred played a radio announcer in The Prize Fighter and he appeared as a newscaster in the movie Death Wish 2 and the TV shows Dark Skies, Silk Stockings and The Incredible Hulk, among others.

Fred came to Los Angeles after receiving an Emmy nomination for his work as an entertainment reporter at WXIA-TV in Atlanta. Before beginning his career in television, Fred worked in the music business, as a writer, producer and promoter.

Fred learned to play the saxophone when he was 9 years old and as a teenager and young adult, he toured with his band, The Sunliners, including a 10-week stint in New York City performing an off-Broadway show called “Hey Let’s Twist” at the famed Peppermint Lounge.

As a fan of all aspects of movie-making, Fred usually referred to himself as a “movie reviewer,” instead of a movie critic. One of his typical observations about poorly-rated films: ‘When you think of the hundreds of people involved in the making of a movie, how many of them actually want it to fail? Don’t you think they try to do the best work they can?’

One of Fred’s favorite films was Forrest Gump. Lori says Fred’s life followed a similar story arc, returning to his native Michigan last year. “He was able to reconnect with his many friends and family,” she said. “He finally was able to realize his dream of living on a lake and he knew that Michigan was where he wanted his life to end – full circle.” Lori reports that half of Fred’s ashes have been spread over the lake he lived on in Michigan; the other half will rest in Hawaii – two places close to Fred’s heart.

Annual BFCA Election – President

May 12th, 2018

As specified in the BFCA By-Laws (Article V, Section 2), it is again time for the BFCA presidential election. This article is the official call for nominees for a two-year term, beginning on July 1, 2018.

As described in the By-Laws, the BFCA President is the general manager and chief executive officer of the Association, responsible for the general supervision, direction and control of the business of the Association, working out of the BFCA office at 9220 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. The annual salary for serving as BFCA President remains $180,000.

The BFCA has continued to grow in recent years. It has a full and part-time staff of 10, plus outside lawyers, accountants, consultants and marketing reps. Under the fulltime leadership of the president, BFCA plays a significant role in our industry, while also funding scholarships, film festival grants and other charitable endeavors. Our Critics’ Choice Awards show is well established on television and a central part of the president’s job is dealing with the domestic and international television networks that have licensed or seek to license the rights to broadcast our shows, including the nominations and red carpet specials, in addition to our prestigious awards shows. This involves innumerable and year-round meetings, conference calls, site visits, etc. Working with sponsors and other marketing partners is also critical, along with planning for other BFCA events such as parties, receptions, and our second awards show, the Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards. Maintaining relationships with such important organizations as SAG, WGA, DGA, MPAA, AMPAS, ATAS and every studio and film marketing and distribution company is also crucial. All this is on top of general oversight of the BFCA and our website (www.criticschoice.com), coordinating with BTJA leadership, supervising all BFCA Committees, being available to all members with questions or concerns, and serving as spokesperson for our Association in the media and the industry.

It is the unanimous recommendation of the BFCA Board of Directors that Joey Berlin be reelected as BFCA President for another two-year term. He has confirmed his strong desire to continue to lead the BFCA. He is currently involved in executing our broadcast deal with The CW for CCA and planning for the launch of the Critics’ Choice Reality Awards. We believe maintaining consistent leadership is vital to this process.

If any other member or members wish to run for President, they should signify intention to do so by sending an email to BFCA Secretary Sara Voorhees ([email protected]) by May 25, 2018. The nominating process will close on that date. A new discussion board will be opened on May 28, if necessary, in preparation for an election the week of June 11. Voting will be by secret ballot, tabulated by the accounting firm of Gregory A. Mogab. If no one chooses to oppose the current president running for re-election, there will be no voting and the current president will continue to serve.

Update: Joey Berlin has officially been reelected without opposition

“We are absolutely thrilled to have Olivia hosting this year’s ceremony, and know that she will deliver an entertaining and sharp-witted evening to everyone in the room, and the viewers at home,” said BFCA President Joey Berlin. “Beyond her skills as an actress, Olivia’s work as an activist within the industry gives her a powerful voice, making her the perfect candidate to lead this night honoring the best and brightest in film and television.”

Olivia Munn is an actor, author and activist and will next be seen on film, as the lead in the action-thriller Hummingbird and starring in Shane Black’s The Predator opposite Keegan-Michael Key and Sterling K.

GAL GADOT TO RECEIVE #SEEHER AWARD

December 21st, 2017

GAL GADOT TO RECEIVE
#SEEHER AWARD
AT 23RD ANNUAL CRITICS’ CHOICE AWARDS 

Wonder Woman” Director Patty Jenkins Will Present to Gadot
During Gala Event on Thursday, January 11, 2018
Live on The CW Network 

(Los Angeles, CA – December 21, 2017) – The Association of National Advertisers (ANA) and The CW Network will partner at the 23rd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards to honor “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot with the #SeeHer Award. “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins will present Gadot with the award at the star-studded Critics’ Choice Awards gala on Thursday, January 11, 2018, live from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif., on The CW Network 8-10 p.m. ET (delayed PT)

Earlier this year, “Wonder Woman” became the highest-grossing live-action film to be directed by a woman (Jenkins), helping Warner Bros. Pictures cross the $5 billion mark at the global box office in 2017. With Jenkins at the helm and Gadot leading the cast, “Wonder Woman” was more than a financial success, it was also a worldwide phenomenon. Audiences of all ages and genders embraced the character and her fight for justice and humanity in the war to end all wars.

The #SeeHer Award recognizes a woman who embodies the values set forth by the #SeeHer movement — to push boundaries on changing stereotypes and recognize the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape. Gadot broke through this year as a powerful voice advocating for women, not only on screen as the iconic Wonder Woman, but in life as well, using her platform to encourage those in the entertainment industry and beyond to strive for fairness and parity across genders. Viola Davis received last year’s inaugural #SeeHer Award.

The #SeeHer movement is spearheaded by the ANA, the largest marketing and advertising association in the United States. The initiative was launched in early 2016 by the ANA’s Alliance for Family Entertainment (AFE). #SeeHer’s mission is to lead a movement to accurately portray all women and girls in media so that by 2020 they see themselves reflected as they truly are. 2020 is the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote.

“We’re honored to recognize Gal this year with the second annual #SeeHer Award,” said ANA CEO Bob Liodice. “Not only was she able to challenge stereotypes in film and find success by starring in one of the biggest blockbusters this year, she also used that success to shine a light on her own industry, and push the boundaries on gender equality in real life.”

“Having critics once again recognize the importance of #SeeHer and including the award in the broadcast is another key milestone for the movement,” added ANA AFE #SeeHer Chair Stephen Quinn. “Entertainment plays such a large part in influencing culture. There has never been a more important time to lean in and support our #SeeHer mission of increasing accurate portrayal of girls and women in media. Gal and Patty are role models for our #SeeHer mission, and we are delighted to have them recognized by the critics and the industry.”

Gal Gadot starred in Patty Jenkins’ smash hit Wonder Woman, one of the year’s most successful films and the highest grossing film of Summer 2017, earning more than $820 million worldwide.  Both the film and Gadot have received praise from audiences and critics alike, with Gadot and Jenkins recently receiving the National Board of Review’s Spotlight Award.  Gadot will also be honored in early 2018 with the Rising Star Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.  She debuted the character of Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and reprised the role in this fall’s Justice League.  Born in Israel, Gadot made her film debut in Fast & Furious, as well as its sequels Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6.  She appeared in the 2010 action comedy films Date Night and Knight and Day, the 2014 Israeli film Kicking Out Shoshana, and the 2016 films Triple 9Criminal and Keeping Up with the Joneses.

Patty Jenkins became the most successful female director in history with her blockbuster film Wonder Woman, which lead the Summer 2017 box office, taking in more than $820 million worldwide, and was one of the most successful films of the year.  Jenkins’ bold take on the superhero garnered both commercial and critical acclaim, most recently highlighted when she and star Gal Gadot received the Spotlight Award from the National Board of Review.  Jenkins, an alumna of the American Film Institute Conservatory Directing Workshop, received their Franklin J. Schaffner Award, as well as the 2004 Independent Spirt Awards’ Best First Feature, for her film Monster, which she wrote and directed.  The film also made AFI’s list of the Ten Best Films of the Year.  She also received the Directors Guild of America’s Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Dramatic Series for her work on the pilot episode of the acclaimed AMC series The Killing.  She was also co-nominated for a DGA Award for Five, a series of short films about breast cancer for Lifetime.  Jenkins began her career as a painter at New York City’s The Cooper Union before transitioning to filmmaking.

Dues-paying members are entitled to two complimentary tickets to the CRITICS’ CHOICE AWARDS gala (member + guest) on Thursday, January 11 at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.  Tickets are going to be extremely tight this year – and definitely not transferable.

To reserve your tickets you must RSVP by December 22 to:  [email protected]
To avoid a check-in bottleneck, you may NOT pay your membership dues at the event.

Thank you.
