The Critics Choice Real TV Awards were launched in 2019 when the CCA and NPACT joined forces to create a large-scale awards platform dedicated to giving the robust, ever-evolving unscripted genre critical attention and support. The awards celebrate programming across broadcast, cable and streaming platforms, and also recognize industry leaders with special awards highlighting career achievements.
NPACT General Manager Michelle Van Kempen said, “The last two years have required unprecedented ingenuity and creativity from nonfiction producers who led the industry in rising to the challenge – creating and safely producing exceptional content that continues to proliferate across streamers and networks. We are thrilled that our annual celebration can return in earnest, and we look forward to honoring the outstanding stories and storytellers of unscripted.”
