Critics Choice Television Awards The Big Bang Theory Game of Thrones Breaking Bad"The Big Bang Theory" was the big winner at the Critics' Choice Television Awards bestowed Monday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles taking three races. (See full list of winners here)

The top-rated laffer won Best Comedy Series, Supporting Actor (Simon Helberg) and Supporting Actress (Kaley Cuoco -- she tied with "The Middle" star Eden Sher).

However, Jim Parsons did not repeat as Comedy Actor with that honor going to Louis C.K. ("Louie") while Bob Newhart lost his guest bid to Patton Oswalt ("Parks and Recreation"). Newhart was feted by the 86 members of the Broadcast Television Journalist Assn. who bestow these awards for his lifetime of achievement. 

"Game of Thrones ruled as Best Drama Series but it had to share its crown with "Breaking Bad," which also won Bryan Cranston his second consecutive Best Drama Actor award.

"Homeland" -- which won both the drama series and lead actress (Claire Danes) prizes last year --was shut out.

With her win for Best Drama Actress coupled with her nomination Monday from the rival TV Critics Assn., Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black") is suddenly a frontrunner for an Emmy nod. 

Also getting a bid boost in her quest for her first Emmy nomination is Drama Supporting Actress champ Monica Potter ("Parenthood"). Michael Cudlitz may have a harder time translating his supporting actor win for the cancelled "Southland" into Emmy recognition.

Guest performer champ Jane Fonda ("The Newsroom") is likely to contend at the Emmys, especially as those top TV kudos have separate categories for men and women. 

Despite a leading six bids, "American Horror Story: Asylum" lost Best Movie/Mini to the telefilm "Behind the Candelabra" which also won for star Michael Douglas. While "AHS" leading lady Jessica Lange was bested by Elisabeth Moss ("Top of the Lake"), Sarah Paulson and Zachary Quinto won the newly added supporting races edging out, among others, co-stars Lily Rabe and James Cromwell

"The Voice" repeated as Best Reality Competition Series while Best Reality Series was shared by "Duck Dynasty" and "Push Girls." 

Tom Bergeron ("Dancing With the Stars") had to share Best Reality Host last year with Cat Deeley ("So You Think You Can Dance") but won the award solo this time around. 

Perennial Emmy champ "Daily Show with Jon Stewart" won Best Talk Show besting, among others, last year's winner "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." 

And "Archer" repeated as Best Animated Series.

Want to win an Emmy? Try playing tipsy or act the lush or even full-blown alcoholic. 

Normally, the high-strung and introverted Dr. Sheldon Cooper on "The Big Bang Theory" would never have a drink. However, in the 2010 episode "The Pants Alternative," he is very nervous about accepting an award so starts knocking back the booze to loosen up and ends up removing his pants. Jim Parsons submitted that episode to Emmy judges and won Best Comedy Actor for the first time.
