Justin Timberlake and nominees Nicole Kidman and Amy Adams are just a few of the celebrities who will present at the 22nd Critics' Choice Awards. 

Presented by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, the awards show honors movies and TV shows that were critical and commercial hits over the past year. The event, which normally takes place in January, will be held Sunday, Dec. 11 at 8 p.m. Eastern at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA. 

Who is hosting? 

T.J. Miller, who hosted the 21st annual awards, will return to host again. The comedian was noted for his lighthearted hosting style in 2016, which included a performance with four life-size puppets.


Even before hosting, Miller had made his opinion of awards shows public. In 2015, he won the CCA Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series award for his performance on Silicon Valley, and said in his acceptance speech, "I would say that awards are for children because children need a tangible representation of their achievement." Miller said when he was offered the hosting job, he thought it was a joke
