Will the awards show be streaming anywhere?
Unlike other ceremonies, unfortunately the Critics Choice Awards 2024 will not be streaming on any platform live or on-demand. Many times the network adds new episodes of shows on The CW app the next day they air for free. But unfortunately, the event will not be streaming on the app or any other platform. So you'll really want to make sure to try and tune in live to see it all!
Critics Choice Awards 2024 categories
Other than the typical awards that will be handed out, there's two special ones for two special actors. Harrison Ford will be honored with the Career Achievement Award. He's known for so many iconic films including the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises. On TV, his most recent roles are in Yellowstone prequel 1923 and Apple TV+'s Shrinking. He's also nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy series for Shrinking.
Barbie actress America Ferrera will be the recipient of the 8th annual SeeHer Award. This is given to women who advocate for gender equality, portray characters with authenticity, defy stereotypes and push boundaries, per a press release. She's known for her roles in Ugly Betty, Superstore, and Gentefied on Netflix.
When it comes to making a change, she's done so through her podcast Poderistas, which is meant to "inform, affirm, and inspire Latinas." She also co-founded HARNESS, which is a community " artists, influencers, and grassroots leaders" who use art and storytelling to try and create a "more equitable world." The star is also up for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Barbie.
