Cat Deeley to host new Critics' Choice TV Awards
The inaugural ceremony will be streamed live at VH1.com and rebroadcast in edited format by ReelzChannel cable network many times starting June 22. VH1.com will also provide celebrity interviews, behind-the-scenes reports and opportunities for fans to interact with stars on its "fan cam" stream.
On June 6, nominations will be announced in more than a dozen categories, including best comedy and drama series and most exciting new series. It'll be interesting to see if "So You Think You Can Dance" will be nominated for best reality-competition show and if Cat Deeley makes the list for best reality host. Neither has ever broken through into the equivalent races at the Emmys.
The awards are determined by the new Broadcast Television Journalists' Assn., an offshoot of the Broadcast Film Critics Assn., which bestows the Critics Choice Movie Awards. See a list of BTJA here.
