Quentin Tarantino To Be Honored at Critics' Choice Movie Awards
The all new Critics' Choice Music+Film Award was created to honor a single filmmaker who has not only inspired moviegoers with his cinematic storytelling, but has heightened the impact of film through the brilliant use of source and soundtrack music. Maroon 5 will perform a special musical tribute from one of Tarantino's most memorable movie scenes. The ceremony will air live on VH1 on Friday, January 14 at 9:00 PM ET/PT from the Hollywood Palladium.
The inaugural Critics' Choice Music+Film Award will honor director Quentin Tarantino who, throughout his career, has truly harnessed the power of a single song and created unforgettable, heart-breaking, exhilarating, and always dynamic moments that remain in the minds of his audience. His mastery of the artful integration of music and film can be seen in such classic movies as "Pulp Fiction," "Reservoir Dogs," "Kill Bill: Vol 1 & 2," and most recently, "Inglourious Basterds."
Counting down to the live premiere of the Critics' Choice Movie Awards, VH1 and MTV will air the 16th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards Red Carpet Pre-Show live on Friday, January 14 at 8:00 PM ET/PT. Covering the excitement of the celebrity arrivals on the red carpet will be co-hosts Tim Kash and La La Vazquez. The pre-show will also be available on CriticsChoice.VH1.com.
