The actor, author, and activist will be hosting the annual award show held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have Olivia hosting this year’s ceremony, and know that she will deliver an entertaining and sharp-witted evening to everyone in the room, and the viewers at home,” said BFCA President Joey Berlin. “Beyond her skills as an actress, Olivia’s work as an activist within the industry gives her a powerful voice, making her the perfect candidate to lead this night honoring the best and brightest in film and television.”
In addition to Munn hosting, this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards will honor Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot with the #SeeHer Award, which is an award that recognizes a woman who embodies the values set forth by the #SeeHer movement — to push boundaries on changing stereotypes and recognize the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape.
The Critics’ Choice Awards are bestowed annually by the BFCA and BTJA to honor the finest in cinematic and television achievement.
The 23rd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards air live from Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar on Thursday, January 11th @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
