Jack Garner

July 12th, 2020

Jack Garner, film critic and longtime member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, died on Sunday July 3, 2020 at the age of 75. 

He was the chief film critic for Rochester New York’s Gannett Newspapers and the staff critic at Rochester’s Democratic and Chronicle for 30 years. He was famous for writing reviews that challenged harsher critics and informed movie lovers’ tastes. He began reviewing films at the Democrat & Chronicle in 1977 — starting with the original Star Wars. In 1987, he was appointed chief film critic of Gannett News Service, and his writing regularly appeared in Gannett newspapers nationwide, and in journals worldwide. He continued to write for the paper as a freelancer, doing a weekly film and entertainment column that included work as a film and DVD commentator with Rochester’s WHAM-TV. He was Rochester’s Hollywood connection.

Garner was also hard to miss in a crowd:  he was six foot nine inches tall, and his laughter was frequent and infectious.

He and his wife Bonnie would have celebrated their 50th anniversary in August.


Winners of the 2nd Annual Critics Choice Real TV Awards

June 30th, 2020

“CHEER” AND “QUEER EYE” LEAD WINNERS OF THE SECOND ANNUAL CRITICS CHOICE REAL TV AWARDS

Jeff Probst Receives Critics Choice Real TV Impact Award

Netflix Tops Networks with Eight Awards

Los Angeles (June 29, 2020) – The Critics Choice Association (CCA) and nonfiction producers’ organization NPACT unveiled today the winners for the second annual Critics Choice Real TV Awards, which recognize excellence in nonfiction, unscripted and reality programming across broadcast, cable and streaming platforms.  

“Cheer” and “Queer Eye” led the winners, each taking home two awards – “Cheer” for Unstructured Series and Male Star of The Year Jerry Harris, and “Queer Eye” for Lifestyle: Fashion/Beauty Show and Ensemble Cast in an Unscripted Series.  The Culinary Show category resulted in a tie, with both “Chopped” and “Top Chef” honored.     

Netflix, which led the networks in nominations, also won the most awards, topping eight categories.  

“Survivor” host and executive producer Jeff Probst received this year’s Critics Choice Real TV Impact Award, for his ongoing contributions to the unscripted television industry.  Probst is a four-time Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Reality Host.  He has traveled the world serving as both host and executive producer for “Survivor,” which won the first-ever Outstanding Non-Fiction Program (Special Class) Emmy Award in 2001.  This year marked the 20th anniversary of “Survivor” and its 40th season!  His acceptance speech can be viewed HERE.

Though this year’s ceremony was not held in person due to the ongoing pandemic, special acceptance videos from each of the winners can be found linked in each category below.  For a special welcome and introduction from virtual emcee and Travel/Adventure Series winner Phil Rosenthal, please click HERE.

To download ALL of the acceptance videos, please click HERE.

To learn more about the Critics Choice Real TV Awards, see the full list of nominees, and all winners’ acceptance speeches, visit http://www.criticschoice.com/2020realtvwinners/.

The honorees for the two peer-voted awards (Outstanding Achievement In Nonfiction Programming By A Network Or Streaming Platform and Outstanding Achievement In Nonfiction Production) are selected by the members of NPACT, the US association for nonfiction production companies.  While the shows themselves are recognized by critics and the public in the other Real TV Awards categories, these awards celebrate the excellence and innovation that happens behind the scenes to create, develop, produce, and deliver every show to the viewing public.  Each show begins as a creative spark that is fueled by a collaboration between producer and programmer to ultimately become the finished program that’s enjoyed by viewers.  The nonfiction production community has come together, through NPACT, to acknowledge and celebrate the best of their colleagues and collaborators with these two awards.

For the Critics Choice Real TV Awards, Bob Bain and Joey Berlin serve as Executive Producers.  Michelle Van Kempen is Executive Producer for NPACT.

Annual BFCA Election – Branch Presidents

May 19th, 2020

As specified in the BFCA By-Laws (Article V, Section 2), it is time for our presidential elections.  This article is the official call for nominees for two-year terms to lead our three voting branches – Film, TV, and Documentaries – beginning July 1, 2020.

As the BFCA has evolved into the Critics Choice Association, the CCA CEO, Joey Berlin, is responsible for the general supervision, direction and control of the business of the Association, working out of our office at 9220 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, and is appointed by the Board of Directors.  Each of the Branch Presidents is responsible for overseeing Critics Choice Awards voting in their specific area, including the nominations process, and other matters of concern to their Branch as they arise.

It is the unanimous recommendation of the BFCA Board of Directors that our three current Branch Presidents, who were initially appointed by the Board, be now formally reelected by the membership to new two-year terms.  They are Pete Hammond (Film), Ed Martin (TV), and Christopher Campbell (Documentaries).  They are each established and respected leaders in the industry and have served our organization extremely well for years.  Maintaining strong consistent leadership is vital to the CCA’s ongoing success.

If any other member or members wish to run for President of any of the three Branches, they should signify intention to do so by sending an email to BFCA Secretary Sara Voorhees ([email protected]) by May 29, 2020.  The nominating process will close on that date.  A new discussion board will be opened on June 1, if necessary, in preparation for an election the week of June 15.  Voting will be by secret ballot, overseen by the accounting firm of Duffy Kruspodin.  If no one chooses to oppose the current presidents running for re-election, there will be no voting and the current presidents will continue to serve.

Critics Choice Association (CCA) and NPACT announce new timeline for “Critics Choice Real TV Awards” in response to Coronavirus Pandemic

March 30th, 2020

Awards Honor Nonfiction and Reality Content

(March 30, 2020) – LOS ANGELES – The Critics Choice Association (CCA) and nonfiction producers’ organization NPACT have announced a new timeline for the second annual “Critics Choice Real TV Awards,” amidst the current coronavirus pandemic.  Submissions will now be accepted through May 15, and nominations will be announced on June 8.  Winners will be announced on June 29, with the final event format still to be determined.  

New Schedule:

  • Submissions open: Wednesday, February 19
  • Deadline for early submissions (with fee discount): Monday, March 9
  • Deadline for submissions: Friday, May 15
  • Nominations announced: Monday, June 8
  • Critics Choice Real TV Awards winners announced: Monday, June 29

Bob Bain and Joey Berlin will serve as Executive Producers. Michelle Van Kempen is Executive Producer for NPACT.

The Critics Choice Real TV Awards were conceived last year when the CCA (then known as the Broadcast Television Journalists Association) and NPACT joined forces to create a large-scale awards platform dedicated to giving the robust, ever-evolving unscripted genre critical attention and support. The awards celebrate programming across broadcast, cable and streaming platforms, and also recognize industry leaders with special awards highlighting career achievements.

Shows are eligible for nomination if at least six (6) episodes premiered between June 1, 2019 and May 31, 2020 to at least 50% of the total potential U.S. television market. 

The Critics Choice Association will monitor all awards submissions and select the nominees in all competitive categories. NPACT will lead the selection of non-competitive discretionary awards. A blue-ribbon nominating committee made up of CCA members with expertise in nonfiction, unscripted and reality programming will determine the nominees. Winners will be chosen by a vote of the CCA membership and announced at the Critics Choice Real TV Awards.

About the Critics Choice Association (CCA)
The Critics Choice Association is the largest critics organization in the United States and Canada, representing more than 400 television, radio and online critics. It was organized last year with the formal merger of the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, recognizing the blurring of the distinctions between film, television, and streaming content. For more information, visit: www.CriticsChoice.com.

About NPACT
NPACT, the trade association for non-fiction production companies doing business in the U.S., includes 100+ member companies comprised of production companies of all sizes, as well as allied services companies. Collectively, NPACT members produce the majority of all nonfiction content for U.S. broadcast, cable television and streaming platforms. NPACT serves as the voice for the non-fiction creative community, providing a forum for producers as they tackle challenges and business issues in this age of media disruption.
