Due to a number of scheduling issues, the Jan. 7 awards show for the Chicago Film Critics Association has just been axed, and also the announcement of the actual recipients of the 2007 CFCA awards is being moved up a day. The winners will be broadcast at 6:45 and 7:45 a.m. Thursday by Dean Richards on WGN-Channel 9.
John Travolta’s Vision Award for Artistic Excellence — announced yesterday — will now be sent to him. Travolta is the first actor to receive the Vision Award — only presented twice before, to filmmakers Robert Altman and William Friedkin.
