Critics' Choice TV Awards: The winners list

At the Critics’ Choice Television Awards on Thursday, Allison Janney nabbed two prizes — but she had to share one.

The veteran actress won for Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her work on Showtime’s Masters of Sex, and she split Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series with Kate Mulgrew (Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black) for her work in CBS’ Mom. Other big winners included FX’s Fargo, which won for Best Mini-Series, Best Actor in a Movie or Mini-Series (Billy Bob Thornton), and Best Supporting Actress in a Movie or Mini-Series (newcomer Allison Tolman), and HBO’s The Normal Heart, which took home Best Movie and Best Supporting Actor in a Movie or Mini-Series (Matt Bomer, above).

Ryan Murphy to be honored as a 'Genius' at Critics' Choice TV Awards

Emmy-winning writer and director Ryan Murphy will be honored with the Louis XIII Genius Award at this year’s Critics’ Choice Television Awards. The fourth annual ceremony, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer, will air on the CW on Thursday, June 19, at 8 p.m. Murphy is best known as the creator of the Fox series Glee and the FX miniseries American Horror Story and most recently directed the HBO film adaptation of The Normal Heart. The latter two projects are nominated for three and five CCTAs, respectively.

“From poignant reality-based movies to dark and twisted horror to musical theater, Ryan Murphy’s creativity knows no bounds,” said Joey Berlin, Broadcast Television Journalists Association President.  “It is a privilege to be able to recognize the incredible talent and breadth of work that he has developed for television viewers thus far in his career, and we look forward to seeing what lies ahead.”

Previous winners of the award include Judd Apatow (2013) and Ethan Hawke, Richard Linklater, and Julie Deply (2014), all for their film work at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. Murphy is the first recipient of the award for his work in TV.

'Big Bang Theory' and HBO are big winners at Critics' Choice Television Awards

Two TV juggernauts won extra accolades at last night’s 3rd annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards, presented by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association at the Beverly Hilton Hotel Monday night.

CBS’s The Big Bang Theory — the most-watched comedy both on network TV and on cable — snagged three prizes, including the honors for Best Comedy Series, Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy (Simon Helberg), and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy (Kaley Cuoco, who tied with The Middle‘s Eden Sher), making it the awards’ single-most celebrated series.

Cable powerhouse HBO, meanwhile, was cited five times for three different series (Veep, Game of Thrones, and The Newsroom) and one TV movie (Behind the Candelabra), making it the awards’ most celebrated network. With four awards of its own, though, FX is nipping at HBO’s heels. And though Game of Thrones was named Best Drama Series at the awards, it wasn’t the only show to win that title; the fantasy shared the prize with AMC’s Breaking Bad.

A full list of winners — including the BTJA’s picks for this fall’s “most exciting new series” — follows.
