The Critics' Choice Movie Awards air Friday night on VH1 at 9 pm EST, and you can join the live blog party. It's worth tuning into for the presenter line-up alone: Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Susan Sarandon, Amy Poehler, Tobey Maguire and more will take the stage. Someone allowed Adam Lambert and Sarah Silverman to present together, and Tracy Morgan is always a wild card. Kristin Chenoweth hosts and Death Cab for Cutie will tribute John Hughes.
'Nine' and 'Inglourious Basterds' lead the contenders with ten nominations each, followed by 'Avatar' with nine.
The awards show is the first major televised one of the season and may start to predict the Oscar horse race. The Golden Globes air Sunday night and the SAG Awards are January 23.
We'll be live blogging the entire show so come back at 9 to watch with us and participate in the interactive live blog.
