Critics’ Choice Television Awards 2015 Recap

Tonight at the Beverly Hilton Hotel the 5th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards hosted by Ms. Cat Deeley were held and all the stars from our favorite television shows and mini series were in attendance.

HBO lead all the networks with over 25 nominations and FX was a close second with over 15 nominations;the shows that got the most nominations were Justified (FX) and Olive Kitteridge (HBO). both with 5 nominations. Also Charlize Theron presented the Louis XII Genius Award to Seth McFarlane for his outstanding work in comedy. During his speech Seth thanked FOX for all their support through the years; but it wouldn’t be a Seth McFarlane speech unless he went a little to far, he made a jab at A&E ( the network that hosted the award show) and Duck Dynasty for their religious views. 

The Critics’ did release a list of the most exciting new shows that will hit television sets this fall; some of the new exciting shows that the Critics’ liked were: Scream Queens, Aquarius, Unreal, The Muppets, Blindspot, Minority Report, and Super Girl. Also the show that the fans voted the most Bing worthy was The Walking Dead. The big winners on the night were Olive Kitteridge and Transparent!
