Martin Scorsese will be honored with the Music+Film Award at the 17th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards on January 12. The award recognizes a filmmaker who "has touched audiences through cinematic storytelling, and has heightened the impact of films through the brilliant use of source and original music." The Broadcast Film Critics Association notes the director's "Hugo," "Mean Streets," "The Departed," "Shine a Light" and "George Harrison: Living in the Material World," among others, for their unforgettable use of music and documentation of the artform. BFCA president Joey Berlin says "We look forward to a truly spectacular show highlighted by the presentation of the Music+Film Award to Martin Scorsese, one of the greatest filmmakers of all time." Here's TOH's live reporting of the winners from last year's ceremony.
