Winners will be announced live at the Critics' Choice Awards gala on Jan. 11. The ceremony is slated to air live on The CW Network.
"2017 has proved to be an incredibly exciting year in movies -- and one of the most wide-open in terms of awards possibilities," Broadcast Film Critics Association President Joey Berlin said in a statement.
"The mix of legendary filmmakers and performers along with vibrant new voices representing fresh and varied styles and perspectives has entertained and challenged critics and audiences alike. It's been a joy to experience these films and we can't wait to celebrate them all on Jan. 11."
"Choosing a handful of outstanding programs or personalities to nominate in any category is a daunting task given the sheer volume of high quality options today on broadcast and cable television and streaming services," added Broadcast Television Journalists Association President Ed Martin.
"But after much careful consideration and thoughtful debate I believe we have filled all of our categories with the most deserving nominees."
