The Nominees for the Second Annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards were announced today. When the award season seems over they pull you back in. This is obviously a different block of voters though. I think they have gotten it right. As a matter of fact, Community is the most nominated show of the year — I still can’t believe NBC almost cancelled the show that was nominated for Best Comedy Series, Best Actor (Joel McHale), Best Supporting Actor (both Danny Pudi and Jim Rash), and Best Supporting Actress (Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs).

 

Interestingly, American Horror Story got nominated for best mini-series, which seems odd. I know its an Anthology, but mini-series? I guess I’m okay with it as long as it doesn’t beat The Hour. Sorry, I love AHS, but The Hour was flat-out special. It’s great television. Watch it if you haven’t. The rest of the nominee are are fairly standard. Lots of Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Game of Thrones. Though Becky Ann Baker from HBO’s Girls got a nod. So did Peter Scolari.
