The Awards Will Not Have a Ceremony This Year
Due to the ongoing writers’ strike, this year’s Critics Choice Real TV Awards will not have an in-person ceremony. Instead, the winners will be announced on June 15.
This isn’t the only award show that has been affected by the strike. Earlier this month, Drew Barrymore pulled out of hosting the MTV Movie & TV Awards in solidarity with the WGA. The live show ended up being canceled and replaced with pre-recorded segments.
Meanwhile, the Tony Awards will apparently move forward with an unscripted show after the WGA agreed not to picket the event. The ceremony will take place June 11 and air on CBS.
