"This has been a truly spectacular year in filmmaking and our voters had an embarrassment of riches to choose from," said BFCA President Joey Berlin. "To recognize the remarkable achievements across every genre of filmmaking we have added several new categories this year, including often overlooked performances in comedy and action. And to add even more fun, we're letting fans in on the voting in one special category."

Movie fans can indeed vote on their favorite film franchise and watch as the winner is announced live on the Critics' Choice Movie Awards on The CW on Jan. 10. This is the first fan-voted award in the history of the Critics' Choice Movie Awards. The nominees include: "Batman," "Harry Potter," "Indiana Jones," "James Bond"/007, "Lord of the Rings," "Spider-Man," "Star Trek," "Star Wars," "Toy Story" and "Twilight."

Voting is now under way. Fans can vote on the official Critics' Choice Movie Awards site, The CW and many of the Internet's most popular entertainment sites including CELEBUZZ, POPSUGAR, Entertainment Weekly, Rotten Tomatoes, Wonderwall, Summit Entertainment, Warner Bros., AreYouScreening, Awards Circuit, Screen It, Slug Mag, Lights Camera Jackson and Scene Stealers.

The Critics' Choice Movie Awards are bestowed annually by the BFCA to honor the finest in cinematic achievement. The BFCA is the largest film critics organization in the U.S. and Canada, representing more than 270 television, radio and online critics. BFCA members are the primary source of information for today's film-going public. Eligible films were released in 2012. The accounting firm of CMM, LLP tallied the written ballots.

Since its inception in 1995, the Critics' Choice Movie Awards has been a star-studded bellwether event of the movie awards season. Historically, the Critics' Choice Movie Awards are the most accurate predictor of the Academy Award nominations. Among the attendees at last year's show were George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron, Bob Dylan, Martin Scorsese and Spielberg. 

Final ballots for the 18th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards will be sent to BFCA members on Jan. 7, 2013, with a deadline for returning final ballots on Jan. 8, 2013.
