The Critics' Choice Movie Awards were established by the American-Canadian Critics Choice Association (CCA) to recognize excellence in cinematic achievement.

Nominees are selected through a week-long balloting process, with announcements made in December. 

In 2010, "Movie" was added to distinguish it from the Critics' Choice Television Awards. 

A partnership with TBS was announced to increase viewership. 

From 2006 to 2012, the ceremony moved between the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium and the Hollywood Palladium. 

NBC boycotted the Golden Globes in 2022, leading to a simulcast agreement with TBS for the Critics' Choice Awards. 

The event has been broadcasted by E!, The WB, VH1, A&E, and currently, The CW. 

Typically aired in the second week of January after the Golden Globes.
