A Full Winners List For the Critics’ Choice Television Awards 2014

orphan

The Critics Choice Television Awards took place last night, and honestly, it’s a winners list that’s produced more interesting results than anything the Emmys have come up with as of late.

As expected, Breaking Bad won best drama, but Matthew McConaughey beat out Bryan Cranston for Best Actor for his work as Rust Cohle in True Detective. Emmy-snubbed (even for a nomination) Tatiana Maslany won Best Actress for playing six or seven different version of herself in Orphan Black, an obvious pick to most besides other TV awards shows, it seems.

Check out the full list of winners for yourself below. I think you’ll agree with many of the picks here.
