BFCA honors Scorsese

'Hugo' director to be feted Jan.12

“Hugo” director Martin Scorsese will receive the Critics’ Choice Music+Film Award at the 17th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, the Broadcast Film Critics Association announced Tuesday. The show will air live VH1 from the Hollywood Palladium on January 12.

Selected by the BFCA Board of Directors, the Music+Film Award honors a single filmmaker for cinematic storytelling and the use of source and original music.

“This year’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards marks another gratifying collaboration with the Broadcast Film Critics Association and our partners at VH1,” states Joey Berlin, BFCA President. “With a very impressive lineup of films featuring the world’s biggest stars under consideration this year, we look forward to a truly spectacular show highlighted by the presentation of the Music+Film Award to Martin Scorsese, one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.”

Historically, the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards are the most accurate predictor of the Academy Award nominations. Last year, for example, all four of the acting category winners at the Oscars – Colin Firth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale and Melissa Leo – first accepted their awards in the same categories at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. In all, 18 of the 20 actors nominated for Oscars were first Critics’ Choice Movie Awards nominees. Quentin Tarantino received the inaugural Music+Film Award in 2011.
