After missing out on a best picture nomination, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will get to compete for best picture at the Critics Choice Awards with "Mad Max: Fury Road," which has a leading 13 nominations. The awards will be presented on Sunday, Jan. 17, 2016, in Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES — "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" might have been shut out of the Oscar best picture race, but the box office behemoth will get a shot to compete with heavyweights like "The Martian" and "The Revenant" at the Critics' Choice Awards on Sunday night.

"Mad Max: Fury Road" has a leading 13 nominations.

Nominees and winners are voted on by the Broadcast Film Critics' Association, and winners have often reflected the Academy's choices.

This is the first year the Critics' Choice Awards will combine movies and television nominees into one ceremony, similar to the Golden Globes.

"Silicon Valley" star T.J. Miller is hosting the ceremony, which will air live on A&E, Lifetime and LMN beginning at 8 p.m. Amy Schumer is getting the Critics' Choice MVP Award.
