The CCMAs (not to be confused with the Creative Communications Media Awards lol, no?) have long been considered the ultimate Oscar predictors. This year, the CCMAs will be broadcast live on on January 12, 2012 on VH!. This means you can watch Celebrity Rehab Revisited before tuning in.
Who do you hope takes home the prize at the 2012 CCMAs? You don’t care? Comment anyway!
