Winners will be announced at the Eclipse Awards ceremony, which takes place at the historic Saenger Theatre in New Orleans, La., Tuesday, Jan. 30.

Winners of the Special Eclipse Award and the Eclipse Award of Merit, as determined by a committee composed of representatives from the presenting organizations, will be announced on Friday, Jan. 5.
