A few days after NBC said it wouldn’t broadcast next year’s Golden Globes, which effectively put the annual show on ice for at least year, another awards show has taken its early January spot on the calendar.

The CW announced it will move up next year’s Critics Choice Awards to Sunday, Jan. 9, 2022 and air them live from 7-10 p.m. ET (west coast will be tape-delayed).

“We are thrilled to be partnering with The CW again and looking forward to gathering in person to celebrate the finest work of this upcoming season,” said Critics Choice Association CEO Joey Berlin.  “The 27th Annual Critics Choice Awards will mark a return to the glamorous, star-studded revelry that make these nights absolutely unforgettable.” 

This year’s edition aired in March.

“We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform. However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly that the HFPA needs time to do it right,” NBC said on Monday, which followed a growing boycott against the HFPA, which puts on the Globes, for its lack of diversity and treatment of Black-led film and TV projects. “As such, NBC will not air the 2022 Golden Globes.”

With the recent bad publicity faced by the HFPA, a growing wave of studio boycotts, time constraints and now no TV network, it is unlikely there will be a 2022 Golden Globe Awards.
