Hey everyone! We've been up working almost non-stop since 5:30 Am for the Academy Award nominations and haven't napped yet. That means it's time to live-blog the 2015 Critics' Choice Awards right? Who's excited? Anyone got an over/under for a "Lego Movie" or "Dick Poop" call out? In case you forgot who was nominated, check out this year's honorees here. 6:00 Pm - The show has started and host Michael Strahan is doing some 'Magic Mike Xxl' themed intro number. Whoever thought this was a good idea should probably not come back to the show next year. Strahan explains who the Bfca (the Broadcast Film Critics Association) is without saying those words. Strahan tries to joke with some of the nominees in the audience. We're not sure this is working. Strahan wants a "Birdman-Strahan" sequel. Whew, we're cutting to a 2014 in review montage. 6:05 Pm - Strahan goes »

In March, A&E will take viewers to two different small towns. In the first one, a motel offers a night of rest for some and eternal sleep for others, while in the second, those thought to be dead come back to their loved ones very much alive. We’re a couple of months away from the premieres of Bates Motel and The Returned, but newly released teaser videos offer a look at the creepy onscreen stories to come.

A&E has rewarded loyal viewers of the unsettling "Bates Motel" with a visually stunning and unnerving trailer for its third season. Based on Hitchcock's timeless "Psycho," the prequel series has firmly established its fan base in the first two seasons, with its contemporary setting adding a new flavor to the Oedipal classic. Photographer and artist Steven Sebring used more than 100 cameras to craft the season three preview that physically blends together mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) and obsessive son Norman (Freddie Highmore), foreshadowing Norman's schizophrenic collapse. Emily Wells' eerie "Mama's Gonna Give You Love" underscores this incestuous dance, adding just the right dose of creepiness. One thing is certain: The next installment of the series promises to satiate fan appetite for a twisted mother-son relationship that knows no bounds. "Bates Motel" will re-open for business on A&E, beginning March 9. Read More: »

Following the brief teaser released in December, A&E has released an innovative trailer for Season 3 of Bates Motel, debuting March 9. Artist Steven Sebring created this unique preview, which makes use of over 100 cameras to create a seamless 360-degree shot of stars Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore in several different environments.

Bates Motel returns for a gripping third season filled with family strife, murder and mystery lead by Vera Farmiga (Norma) and Freddie Highmore (Norman). This season focuses on the evolution of the Bates family and dives head first into Norman's waning ability to stay in denial about what's happening to him and the lengths he will go to gain control of his fragile psyche. The dramatic events of last season leave Norma reluctantly more aware of Norman's mental fragility and is fearful of what he is capable of. »

Starting in March, A&E has set up a Monday night of Carlton Cuse-produced spins on genre favorites. A&E announced on Friday (January 9) morning that "Bates Motel" will return for its third season on Monday, March 9 at 9 p.m. "Bates Motel" will be followed by the first season of A&E's remake of "The Returned," which A&E hopes will do better than last spring's short-lived "Bates" lead-out "Those That Kill." "Bates Motel" is, of course, a semi-prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho," while "The Returned" is a very literal English-language take on SundanceTV's acclaimed French zombie-kinda drama "Les Revenants." While both dramas feature "Lost" veteran Carlton Cuse as executive producer, it's worth noting that Raelle Tucker ("True Blood") is running the show on "The Returned," while Kerry Ehrin is steering "Bates Motel." The "Returned" ensemble includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Mark Pellegrino, Jeremy Sisto, India Ennenga, Sophie Lowe, »
