The Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) has announced the nominees for The 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.

The show will be broadcast live on The CW Network at 8:00 PM ET/PT. Two hour pre-show coverage will also air in various local markets before the awards ceremony.

Aisha Tyler will grace the show as this year’s host. Tyler, who is not new to the duties that come with hosting a show, serves as the new host of the critically acclaimed improv show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” on The CW Network. Tyler is also currently a co-host of Emmy-nominated show “The Talk.”

“I am truly honored to be hosting the 2014 Critics’ Choice Awards,” Tyler stated. “It was an incredible year for film and actors. The field of nominees is diverse and robust, the talent represented extraordinary. Also Coldplay was nominated, so you know the night’s gonna end in a bar fight. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen Meryl Streep throw them ‘bows. Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em; it’s going to be an epic night.”

“12 Years a Slave” and “American Hustle” tie this year with thirteen nominations each. “12 Years a Slave” has been nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor, Best Supporting Actor for Michael Fassbender, Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong’o, Best Acting Ensemble, Best Director for Steve McQueen, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Editing, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Best Score for Hans Zimmer.

Russell, Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup, Best Comedy, Best Actor in a Comedy for Christian Bale, and Best Actress in a Comedy for Amy Adams.

“Gravity” also impressed with ten nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress for Sandra Bullock, Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Editing, Best Visual Effects, Best Actress in An Action Movie for Sandra Bullock, Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie and Best Score.

“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Her,” “Captain Phillips,” and “Nebraska” all received six nominations while “The Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug” received five. “Inside Llewyn Davis,” “August: Osage County,” “Enough Said,” “Saving Mr. Banks,” “Iron Man 3,” and “Rush” received four nominations. Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock were both nominated for their comic performances in “The Heat,” with two more acting nominations for Bullock for Best Actress and Best Actress in an Action Movie for “Gravity.” Jennifer Lawrence also has multiple acting nominations for Best Supporting Actress in “American Hustle” and Best Actress in an Action Movie for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” Christian Bale and James Gandolfini both also have multiple acting nominations.

“Everyone acknowledges that 2013 has been a truly great year for films so our Critics’ Choice Movie Awards voters had an embarrassment of riches to choose from,” notes BFCA President Joey Berlin. “BFCA members have loved covering all these terrific films all year long and now revisiting them before we filled out our ballots.  And we’re thrilled to have the lovely and talented Aisha Tyler hosting our gala awards ceremony.  We can’t wait for January 16th, when the Academy Award nominations will be announced in the morning and so many of their honorees will then make their first public appearance as Oscar nominees on our Red Carpet.”

Also announced this year is BFCA’s two year contract with Defy Media’s #1 digital entertainment news brand, Clevver, to become the first digital media partner for the 2014 and 2015 awards shows. The partnership expands the reach of the long-standing awards show by tapping into Clevver’s multi-platform digital network and significant online audience of young entertainment enthusiasts. As an official partner, Clevver will power the CCMA’s audience vote for the year’s “Hottest Star” award to be announced during the live broadcast. Fans can cast their vote at www.Clevver.com/Vote. Clevver will also participate in the two-hour live pre-show, delivering up-to-the-minute coverage and social media updates, as well as a “Clevver Lounge” backstage during the awards show where correspondents will gain backstage access to the evening’s winners.

About Aisha Tyler:
Aisha Tyler serves as the new host of the critically acclaimed improv show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” which features the return of cast members Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie. She is also currently a co-host of Emmy-winning show “The Talk,” and voices the character of sexy superspy Lana on the hit animated series “Archer.”
Tyler’s talent and versatility sparked her rapid ascent in Hollywood.  Her hot-streak stint at the head of E! Entertainment’s “Talk Soup” landed her firmly in the Hollywood spotlight and revitalized the Emmy-winning show, which she was the first woman and African-American to captain.  After leaving “Talk Soup,” Tyler moved quickly into television and film roles, enjoying another first — the first African-American to play an extended character arc on “Friends.”  She co-starred with Jennifer Love Hewitt in the hit drama “Ghost Whisperer,” had extended roles on two of television’s top dramas “CSI” and “24,” and has made numerous appearances on other series, including, “Nip/Tuck,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Reno 911” and more.

Tyler is the creator and host of an award-winning podcast, “Girl on Guy.”  Chosen as a best new comedy podcast of 2011 by iTunes, “Girl on Guy” is a show about stuff guys love, brought to you by the ultimate guy’s girl.  The podcast has over 8 million downloads since its inception in July of 2011, and it is 5-star rated by thousands of fans on iTunes.  It is also frequently the number one comedy podcast on iTunes.
Tyler’s second book, “Self Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation,” was an immediate NY Times best seller. Based on a recurring element of the podcast, the book is a series of comic essays.

In 2009, Tyler returned to her stand-up comedy roots, starring in a hilarious one-hour special for Comedy Central, “Aisha Tyler is Lit:  Live at the Fillmore.” Tyler has had roles in Adam Sandler’s hit “Bedtime Stories,” the crime drama “Death Sentence,” opposite Kevin Bacon, and the Universal comedy “Balls of Fury,” with Christopher Walken.  She completed filming “Black Water Transit,” a film set in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, directed by iconic Brit Tony Kaye and starring Lawrence Fishburne.  She also had roles in “.45,” opposite Milla Jovovich, and “Santa Clause III,” with Tim Allen.
