This fourth edition of the Critics’ Choice TV Awards caused an uproar in our forums. While some of the winners were well-received by our readers (yes, you Jessica Lange), others incited incendiary reactions (Allison Janney, you might not want to read any further!).
Below, just a sampling of their caustic comments.
Zdog123: It was irritating that like half the winners weren’t in attendance. I know some were probably filming, but I seriously doubt all of them were.
moviefan61794: I was expecting critics to give True Dectective the series win since they adored it, so BB’s win might be a sign of things to come.
Atypical: Yay for Matthew McConaughey! I didn’t think he would win, so cheers to him! Surprised he showed up to accept something like this though.
Halo_Insider: Hooray for Tatiana! Fantastic win. It’s going to be a shame if she gets omitted from the Emmys again.
Emmys2011: As much as I love Parsons and specially Dreyfus, I really wanted this group to think outside the box not just with nominations but winners, picking Middleditch and Rossum.
montana82: Big ole eye role with the continuation of the Allison Janney love fest circa 2000-2004. Apparently there is some written rule that she needs to win for anything she’s nominated for.
eastwest: The mini/movie wins are amazing! Loved how they went off script with 3/4 acting wins there with Allison, Billy Bob, and Jessica rightfully winning.
Gabriel: Allison Tollman deserves that win. Well done to the Critics Choice for NOT doing what the Emmys will inevitably do: rubberstamp Julia Roberts’s nothing performance in the Normal Heart.
