VH1 CONFIRMED AS MEDIA PARTNER FOR INAUGURAL AWARDS SHOW HONORING NONFICTION AND REALITY CONTENT

Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards Takes Place Sunday, June 2 in Beverly Hills

 

Los Angeles (May 6, 2019) – The Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) and NPACT, the trade organization serving the producers of nonfiction entertainment content, unveiled today the nominees for the inaugural Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards, which recognize excellence in nonfiction, unscripted and reality programming across broadcast, cable and streaming platforms.  Additionally, they announced VH1 as their media partner who will air the show on Sunday, June 9.

The awards ceremony takes place Sunday, June 2 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.

“RuPaul’s Drag Race” (VH1) leads this year’s field with five nominations including Competition Series,  Ensemble Cast in an Unscripted Series, Female Star of the Year (Michelle Visage), Male Star of the Year (RuPaul Charles), and Show Host (RuPaul Charles).  Additionally, “RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked!” (VH1) earned a nod of its own for Unstructured Series.

Netflix’s “Queer Eye” follows close behind with four nominations for Ensemble Cast in an Unscripted Series, Lifestyle Show: Fashion/Beauty, Male Star of The Year (Jonathan Van Ness), and Structured Series. Two other Netflix programs, “Our Planet,” and “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” were nominated for three awards each: the former for Animal/Nature Show, Limited Documentary Series, and Male Star of The Year (David Attenborough), and the latter for Female Star of the Year (Marie Kondo), Lifestyle Show: Home/Garden, and Structured Series.  The streaming platform leads this year’s network tally with 33 total nominations.

“There is such a tremendous amount of great reality programming, and we are thrilled to be recognizing this vital segment of the television world alongside our wonderful partners at NPACT,” said BFCA President and Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards executive producer Joey Berlin.  “And to be reunited with our friends at VH1 ensures that this ceremony will be a night for guests, and viewers, to remember!”

Added NPACT General Manager John Ford, “It is beyond gratifying to see NPACT – an organization conceived just five years ago as a voice for the unscripted creative community – now fully engaged with the BFCA in a robust awards program celebrating all facets of nonfiction content, entertainment and production. We’re honored to be in this endeavor with Joey, Bob and VH1 as they deliver this exciting new awards show to the myriad fans of our genre.”

Created to give the thriving, ever-evolving genre critical attention and support, the BTJA- and NPACT-developed awards show is adapted from, and replaces, the NPACT Impact Awards held last year. In addition to the critics’ choices, the show will feature two fan-voted awards, and three peer-selected awards given to those who have made significant contributions to the industry.

Taye Diggs To Host 24th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards

January 3rd, 2019

TAYE DIGGS TO HOST 24TH ANNUAL
CRITICS’ CHOICE AWARDS

GALA EVENT WILL AIR LIVE ON THE CW NETWORK SUNDAY, JANUARY 13, 2019
FROM THE BARKER HANGAR IN SANTA MONICA

(Los Angeles, CA – January 3, 2019) – Acclaimed film, television, and stage star Taye Diggs will host the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards, the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) announced today.  Diggs is currently starring in The CW drama “All American” and was recently seen in the romantic comedy “Set It Up.”

As previously announced, Best Supporting Actress nominee Claire Foy will accept the #SeeHer Award, while Chuck Lorre, creator of such acclaimed TV comedies as “The Big Bang Theory,” “Mom,” “Young Sheldon” and “The Kominsky Method” (which all received Critics’ Choice Award nominations last month), will receive the Critics’ Choice Creative Achievement Award.

The star-studded Critics’ Choice Awards will be broadcast live on The CW Network on Sunday, January 13th, from 7 – 10 p.m. ET (delayed PT).

“I am truly honored and ridiculously excited to be hosting the 24th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, especially since, as an actor, I recognize what a vital role the critics play in the entertainment industry today,” said Diggs.  “We are all looking forward to a big night celebrating the best of the best in TV and film!”

“We are thrilled to have Taye hosting this year’s ceremony,” said BFCA President Joey Berlin.  “Taye is a star of both film and television, plus his illustrious stage career makes him especially qualified to lead our show.  He promises to infuse the Critics’ Choice Awards with his infectious charm and humor, and enrich what already promises to be a memorable night!”

In The CW’s new drama “All American,” Taye Diggs plays Billy Baker, the head coach of Beverly High’s football team, who can’t let go of his glory days in the NFL. He recruits Spencer (Daniel Ezra) from South Crenshaw, maybe because he sees himself in Spencer, maybe because he wants to win, or maybe a bit of both.

Diggs recently starred in the romantic comedy “Set It Up” opposite Zoey Deutch and Lucy Liu. He also completed the independent film “River Runs Red,” featuring John Cusack and George Lopez.

He was most recently seen on season four of “Empire” as Angelo Dubois. Diggs starred in three seasons of “Murder in the First,” alongside Kathleen Robertson. For his role in the series, Diggs earned a 2014 NAACP Image Award nomination in the category of “Outstanding Male Actor in a Drama Series.”

His television credits include “Private Practice” (NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor), “Rosewood,” “The Good Wife,” “Daybreak,” “Kevin Hill” (NAACP Image Award for Best Actor– Television), “Ally McBeal,” “Will & Grace,” “Ed,” “The West Wing,” “New York Undercover” and “Law & Order.”

Earlier this year, Diggs and collaborator Shane Evans released their third children’s book, “I Love You More Than.” This book is a follow up to his first two children’s books, “Chocolate Me” and “Mixed Me!,” through Macmillan Publishers.

An acclaimed stage actor, Diggs was the first African American to star as the title role on Broadway in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” Additional theatre credits include “A Soldier’s Play” (Second Stage Theatre), “Wicked,” “Chicago,” “The Wild Party” (Manhattan Theatre Club), “Rent” and “Carousel.”

Diggs’ film credits include “The Best Man Holiday,” “Baggage Claim,” “Rent,” “Chicago,” “Brown Sugar,” “Equilibrium,” “Basic,” “The Way of the Gun,” “The Best Man,” “Just a Kiss,” “The House on Haunted Hill,” “Go,” “Drum,” “Cake” and “Malibu’s Most Wanted.”

Claire Foy And Chuck Lorre To Receive Special Honors At The 24th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards

December 14th, 2018

CLAIRE FOY AND CHUCK LORRE TO RECEIVE SPECIAL HONORS
AT THE 24TH ANNUAL CRITICS’ CHOICE AWARDS

FOY WILL BE RECOGNIZED WITH THIS YEAR’S #SEEHER AWARD,
LORRE WILL RECEIVE THE CRITICS’ CHOICE CREATIVE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

GALA EVENT WILL AIR LIVE ON THE CW NETWORK SUNDAY, JANUARY 13, 2019
FROM THE BARKER HANGAR IN SANTA MONICA


(Los Angeles, CA – December 14, 2018)
– Actress Claire Foy and producer Chuck Lorre will receive very special honors at the 24
th annual Critics’ Choice Awards gala, the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) announced today. 

Also a Critics’ Choice Awards nominee for Best Supporting Actress in “First Man,” Foy will accept the #SeeHer Award.  The creator of such acclaimed TV comedies as “The Big Bang Theory,” “Mom,” “Young Sheldon” and “The Kominsky Method” (which all received Critics’ Choice Award nominations earlier this week), Lorre will receive the Critics’ Choice Creative Achievement Award.

The star-studded Critics’ Choice Awards will be broadcast live on The CW Network on Sunday, January 13th, from 7 – 10 p.m. ET (delayed PT).

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 authentic portrayals of women across the entertainment landscape.  #SeeHer is spearheaded by the ANA (Association of National Advertisers), the largest marketing and advertising association in the United States.  The mission of #SeeHer is to accurately portray all women and girls in media so that by 2020, the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, they see themselves reflected as they truly are. Previous award recipients are Viola Davis and Gal Gadot. 

“We are very honored to recognize this acclaimed actress with our third annual #SeeHer Award,” said ANA CEO Bob Liodice. “Claire has delivered many powerful, compelling performances on TV and film, including The Crown, The Girl in the Spider’s Web and First Man. Her portrayals of such strong female characters is an inspiration for our movement.”

“It’s wonderful to see Claire Foy receive this award,” said Fiona Carter, chief brand officer, AT&T Communications. “When we shine a light on stories that ring true for all women, and celebrate the creators bringing them to life, we come a step closer to a world in which women are authentically portrayed in media and popular culture. It’s why AT&T, as one of the largest advertisers in the country, is proud to support the #SeeHer movement.” 

The Critics’ Choice Creative Achievement Award recognizes a body of work that stands out for its sustained excellence over a period of decades on programs that have delighted huge audiences with tremendous laughter and clever insights into the human condition.  Chuck Lorre’s creative achievements rank with greatest television producers of all time with an incredible string of hit sitcoms dating back to “Grace Under Fire,” “Roseanne,” “Dharma & Greg,” “Mike & Molly,” and “Two and a Half Men” that shows no sign of letting up.

“`The Big Bang Theory’ has been called the most successful television comedy ever, so it seems like the perfect time to honor Chuck as that show gets ready to ride off into the sunset,” said BFCA President Joey Berlin.  “Thankfully, we still have ‘Mom,’ ‘Young Sheldon,’ and his latest gift to comedy lovers, `The Kominsky Method’ going strong to help us get over the loss.  For a quarter of a century Chuck has been keeping us in stitches with comedies of remarkable hilarity and consistency, delighting viewers and critics alike.”

Claire Foy has a diverse and exceptional range of work across television, film and theater.  In addition to “First Man,” last fall Foy starred as Lisbeth Salander in Sony Pictures Entertainment’s “The Girl in the Spider’s Web.”  Foy was recently seen in Steven Soderbergh’s psychological horror film “Unsane” as Sawyer Valentini.  The entire film was shot on an iPhone 7, and received critical acclaim for both Foy’s performance and for Soderbergh’s fresh vision.

Prior to this, Foy was seen in season two of Netflix’s critically acclaimed series “The Crown” about Britain’s Royal Family.  Starring in the much-coveted role of Queen Elizabeth II, her performance won her a Golden Globe Award, an Emmy and two Screen Actors Guild Awards, along with two British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Television Award nominations.  Foy was also seen in “Breathe” alongside Andrew Garfield in October 2017, directed by Andy Serkis and written by William Nicholson – a remarkable story of Robin and Diana Cavendish, who navigate life after he is struck down with paralyzing polio.

Also well known for her incredible television roles, Foy has been on our small screens since she made a name for herself in the titular role of the critically acclaimed BBC adaptation “Little Dorrit.”  The drama won Outstanding Miniseries at the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2009, and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.  That same year, Foy’s performance earned her a nomination for Best Actor (Female) at the Royal Television Society Awards. 

Chuck Lorre co-created and serves as executive producer of the blockbuster comedy “The Big Bang Theory,” the critically acclaimed comedy “Mom” and the acclaimed hit comedy “Young Sheldon,” all for CBS, and he created/executive produces the new Netflix comedy “The Kominsky Method,” which stars Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin. Lorre also co-created/executive produced the Netflix comedy “Disjointed,” starring Academy Award® and Emmy® winner Kathy Bates. He previously was executive producer of the hit sitcom “Mike & Molly” and co-created/executive produced the long-running hit comedy “Two and a Half Men.” Before that, he created hits such as “Cybill,” “Dharma & Greg” and “Grace Under Fire,” and also served as co-executive producer on “Roseanne.” In 2009, Lorre received the NATPE Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award, was named Television Showman of the Year at the 46th Annual ICG Publicists Awards Ceremony and was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2012, he was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame, and in 2016, he was inducted into the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Hall of Fame.

In 2015, The Chuck Lorre Family Foundation (TCLFF) established “The Big Bang Theory” Scholarship Endowment at UCLA to support undergraduate students in need of financial aid who are pursuing their higher education in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). And in 2018, continuing its commitment to fund innovative efforts in STEM education, TCLFF announced the creation of a new grant program — THE YOUNG SHELDON STEM INITIATIVE — inspired by the hit comedy series “Young Sheldon.” The program was created to foster excitement for learning in STEM fields, specifically in support of our nation’s public schools, teachers and students.

About the #SeeHer Movement
Despite the strides made to accurately portray women and girls in media, an unconscious bias persists against women and girls in advertising, media, and programming. The Association of National Advertisers (ANA) launched the #SeeHer initiative in June 2016 in a partnership with The Female Quotient (TFQ) at the United State of Women. SeeHer’s mission is to increase the accurate portrayals of women and girls in media 20 percent by 2020, the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote in the U.S. The group developed a Gender Equality Measure (GEM™) to track progress and the marketing effect of removing unconscious bias from ads and programming. High GEM™ scores directly correlate to improved ROI. GEM™ won the 2017 ESOMAR Research Effectiveness Award. The methodology became the industry standard in the U.S., which led to a global rollout in 2018. For more information, visit www.SeeHer.com, and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Inaugural ‘Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards’ Honoring Nonfiction And Reality Content

November 16th, 2018

BROADCAST TELEVISION JOURNALISTS ASSOCIATION AND NPACT JOIN FOR INAUGURAL “CRITICS’ CHOICE REAL TV AWARDS” HONORING NONFICTION AND REALITY CONTENT

Awards Show to Take Place Sunday, June 2, 2019

Los Angeles, CA (November 16, 2018) – The Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) and NPACT, the trade organization serving the producers of nonfiction entertainment content, announced today they have joined forces and will spin off the Critics’ Choice Awards “Reality Show” categories to create a brand new, stand-alone awards show dedicated to nonfiction, unscripted and reality television content.

The inaugural Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards will take place Sunday, June 2, 2019 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.  Bob Bain and Joey Berlin will serve as Executive Producers.

Collaborating on an event that gives the thriving, ever-evolving genre its due respect and support, the BTJA- and NPACT-developed awards show recognizes excellence in nonfiction, unscripted and reality programming across broadcast, cable and streaming platforms. Adapted from and replacing the first NPACT Impact Awards held earlier this year, the new event also will recognize leaders in the industry with awards highlighting careers and honoring lifetime achievements.

The Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards categories will be announced in January.

“The time has come for the best nonfiction, unscripted and reality television programming to have its own, large-scale awards show, which recognizes the fact that superlative creative work is being done in this area,” said BFCA President and Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards executive producer Joey Berlin. “The industry has matured over the last two decades, and nonfiction and reality have never been more relevant. They deserve their own night of celebration.”

Added NPACT General Manager John Ford, “The community of creative entrepreneurs that inspired NPACT drives our industry to expand its influence. As the producers of this compelling content across myriad genres, we are honored to work with BTJA to launch this robust awards program.”

To ensure the integrity of the awards, BTJA will monitor all awards submissions and select the nominees in all competitive categories. NPACT will lead the selection of non-competitive discretionary awards. A call for submissions in all competitive categories will take place in early 2019. A blue ribbon nominating committee made up of BTJA members with expertise in nonfiction, unscripted and reality television will determine the nominees, who will be announced in early May. Winners will be chosen by a vote of the BTJA membership and announced at the Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards gala on June 2.  Submission details and official show categories will be announced in January.
