    If they’re general, sure, why not. The thing is that writing and directing on TV is episodic instead of the whole season. Also, doesn’t there need to be two for each? One for series and another for limited series/movies? There are already 11 TV categories. Though at the same time it could equal with the pictures categories.

    I think they should. Directors/Writers should be awarded but they will probably make really laughably embarrassing choices. But that might be the fun of it too.

    The fact that there are no directing/writing categories tells me the HFPA do not actually watch these shows but they just vote based on who they like the most and popularity

    There’s a potential six writing/directing categories that could be added in comedy/musical, drama, and limited series/made for television film. I doubt they would ever want to add that many categories, and sadly it’s not like they take the television categories all that seriously. If they did, they would divide up the supporting catch-all categories better than what they currently do. The concept is worthy, but the execution is another matter.

    I mean I would rather them break up their weird catch-all supporting categories first (mostly because they are impossible to predict lol)

    GG mainly exists for film awards and acts as Oscar precursor. TV awards are just accessory anyway.

    But Critics Choice Awards need to add writng and directing categories soon. And if they worry about going over the time limit, they can present these categories or guest acting/longform supporting ones before the real ceremony starts.

    No. They don’t have time to add more categories.

    No. Leave the prestige to the Emmys, Directors/Writers guilds.

    What 24Emmy and mikeboy898 said! This clocks at 3 hours and there’s already 20+ of these things being handed out. There’s no need for it. They don’t check for TV like they do films, case and points the mash up supporting categories and the seating arrangements.

    Yes. I think they should.  But I don’t see the need for 8 categories. I’d like to see some combined categories such as

    Writing for a TV Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie

    Directing for a TV Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie

    Writing for a Motion Picture—Drama

    Directing for a Motion Picture-Drama

    Writing for a Motion Picture-Musical or Comedy

    Directing for a Motion Picture-Musical or Comedy

    They could nominate Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Ricky Gervais, Will Forte and
    Louis C.K. for writing and for directing without repeating anyone, they
    could do Robin Wright, Don Cheadle, William H. Macy, Lena Dunham and
    Melissa McCarthy.
