EXCLUSIVE: Oscar winner Martin Scorsese, an awards contender this season with Hugo, will receive the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s second Critics’ Choice Music+Film Award at the upcoming 17th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. The ceremony will take place on Jan. 12 at the Hollywood Palladium and will be carried live by VH1 for a fifth consecutive year. Selected by the BFCA Board of Directors, the Music+Film Award recognizes an accomplished filmmaker who has heightened the impact of films through the use of source and original music. In addition to employing music in his acclaimed features, Scorsese also has done a series of documentary/concert films about musicians, most recently George Harrison: Living in the Material World. Quentin Tarantino received the inaugural Music+Film Award this year. The nominees for the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards will be announced next Tuesday.
