The Critics' Choice Awards honor films from the past year. The 2009 nominees, which were announced on Monday, include "Avatar," "An Education," "Inglourious Basterds," "Nine" and "Up in the Air."
Recently Nick and the band performed at the Grammy Nominations concert, which he described for MTV News. "It definitely was different," Nick said of performing without brothers Joe and Kevin. "But I think going into it, knowing they were supportive made it all right."
As for his January tour, Nick said he's not sure if he'll have any special guests on the road with him. "I think that this show is all about me expressing myself," Nick said. "So, as far as special guests go, I think we might keep it me and the Administration. I'm up for whatever, but we'll have to see what happens."
