01 15 01 critics choice movie awards Critics Choice Movie Awards: Will You Tune In?

Will you tune in to see if Kristin can deliver? Check out what the show has in store for you.

Kristin Chenoweth is a petit actress, who stands at a whopping 4″11′. So how will she fill the big shoes as the host of the 15th annual Critics Choice Movie Awards? Well with an attitude as big as her Texas accent, it seems that she may be able to hold her own. Kristin not only has a great singing voice which she belted out on an episode of “Glee” last season, she also has a comedic background as being the crazy american sweetheart in “Pushing Daisies.” Plus the promos for the critics choice awards are hilarious….

“Twilight Spoof”

The night isn’t all about the host its really about the Movie Nominees. If your a big fan of Fergie, then the odds are good to see her grace the stage because the movie Nine has received 10 nominations for Critic’s Choice Awards. How exciting! Heading into the night Inglourious Basterds has 10 noms, and the late blockbuster Avatar has 9 Noms,

So who will end up on top?

Also Nick Jonas & The Administration will perform as the house band for the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. Nick said: ‘I’m excited and honored. ..We’ll be performing a lot of covers. Intros and outros to the commercials. I think we have about 25 songs to learn.’ “Good Luck.” Sounds like a fun but tedious gig.

Here are the categories we can look forward to on Friday. Be sure to keep your fingers crossed!
