"Inglourious Basterds" garnered nods for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Ensemble, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Editing, Best Costume Design and Best Action Movie. "Nine" received nominations for B est Picture, Best Supporting Actress, Best Ensemble, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Editing, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup, Best Sound and Best Song.

Fifteen-year-old Saoirse Ronan earned nods in both the Best Actress and Best Young Actor/Actress categories, among the six nominations for "The Lovely Bones". "Up" received nominations for Best Picture and Best Animated Feature and this year three of the Best Action Movie nominees are also up for Best Picture - "Avatar," "Inglourious Basterds" and "The Hurt Locker".
The 15th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards also marks the addition of seven new award categories - Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Editing, Best Costume Design, Best Visual Effects, Best Make up, and Best Sound. Additionally, the BFCA has returned to separating the screenwriting category into Original Screenplay and Adapted Screenplay.

"The expansion of categories from 17 to 25 has given the members of the BFCA the opportunity to fully express our critical acumen," noted BFCA President Joey Berlin. "Most members watch hundreds of movies each year and report back to millions of moviegoers each week. We are proud of our role in helping audiences find the best movies - culminating in the Critics' Choice Movie Awards in January."
The 235 members of the BFCA, the largest film critics' organization in the United States and Canada, representing television, radio and online critics, selected nominees in each of 25 categories. The awards are bestowed annually to honor the finest in cinematic achievement. Eligible films were released in 2009. The accounting firm of Gregory A. Mogab tallied the written ballots. Historically, the Critics' Ch oice Movie Awards are the most accurate predictor of the Academy Award nominations.
Today, VH1 also announces the launch of its Critics' Choice Movie Awards Web site at CriticsChoice.VH1.com. The site offers movie fans detailed information about the show and this year's nominees. The site also gives users a chance to weigh in on who they think should rise to the top in each Critics' Choice category. In the coming weeks the site will launch a fashion section dedicated to the best red carpet looks of the year, as well as a real-time graph of Twitter activity surrounding the Critics' Choice Movie Awards.
The 15th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards is executive produced by Bob Bain, Joey Berlin, Jesse Ignjatovic and Lee Rolontz. Paul Flattery serves as producer and Kelly Brock as co-producer.
