    I’ve always liked these. They have done a much better job than the Emmy’s, and they’re only 3 years old. They nominated Regina King last year, and Christina Hendricks has won here. They always come up with good nominees and great winners.

    One of their twelve guest nominees matched up to the Emmys last year.

    Five
    of the twenty winners matched up, so they still have a bit of a ways to
    go before they are like their film equivalent, which matched nine of
    nineteen winners to the Oscars.

    Southland, Community, Justified and Sons of Anarchy did much better here than at the Emmys last year.  New Girl, Raising Hope and Parks and Recreation also picked up some extra nominations.

    Maybe Enlightened will get some love here since it was mostly critics beating the drum for it this past season.

    Does anyone know how much overlap in voting bodies there is for these and the TCAs?

    Except, unlike the terrible Critics Choice Awards for Film, I hope they continue to simply award based on preference instead of trying to predict the Emmys.

    It would be nice if they got rid of the dead weight (Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Modern Family, Good Wife) that Emmy relies on too much and open the tent to more of what’s on basic cable as well.  The best drama you’re not watching is running roughshod north of the border in getting nominations for various groups. Fingers crossed.

    Drama Series predictions:
    Breaking Bad (AMC)
    * Game of Thrones (HBO)
    Homeland (Showtime)
    House of Cards (Netflix)
    Justified (FX)
    The Americans (FX)

    I hope these awards are televised or at least receive webcast treatment (like 2 years ago).

    Keep in mind that, with only 77 voting members and only 6 nominees in each category, you would only need 13 votes to win. While this group has made some great choices in the past, they are hardly a gauge of the Emmys.

    ^Which is a good thing. I wanted this to be an alternative to the Emmys. They pretty much won my respect when they gave props to Fringe’s third season. I would hate for it to move towards the tendencies its film voting counterpart. Also, it’s impossible for any awards group to be a gauge of the Emmys, because of the very specific way they vote within the academy. And they don’t receive the amount of press as the Globes, SAGs or even the TCAs, so their winners and nominees don’t effect the race that much.

    I’m curious to see how comedy will turn out, especiallly in terms of Modern Family’s nominations. They critics have already been pretty good about limiting their recognition for the show, so it remains to be seen if its total will be the same here as it was last year (only getting nominated for Series, Supporting Actor (Ty Burrell), Supporting Actress (Julie Bowen), and Guest Actor (Bobby Cannavle), with only Burrell and Bowen winning).
