The Critics Choice Awards 2022 will have Taye Diggs and Nicole Byer as hosts for the ceremony. It will be an in-person event  at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, California. 

In a statement, while announcing the delay, The Critics Choice Association said, “Following the science and tracking the course of the omicron variant, we believe that March 13th will be the right day to properly honor the finest achievements in film and television during the past year. We could have proceeded with our original date with limited attendance or switched to a virtual awards show like we did last year, but we decided to wait until we could safely gather in person and truly celebrate with the creative community, industry leaders and our CCA members all together in one beautiful setting for all the world to see.”
