FX Cleans Up At Critics’ Choice Television Awards, Full List Of Winners

What a night of star wattage and surprises at the 2014 Critics’ Choice Awards, and for some actors and shows who are normally shut out of the Emmy Awards process it was a moment to at least be recognized for their exemplary work.

The Critics’ Choice Awards is a less drunken, younger, hipper version of the Golden Globes that focuses solely on TV with a much less pretentious vibe. It was a gorgeous night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, which is about to turn into the home of Television Critics far and wide for about two weeks in early July for the biannual TCA press tour. Tonight it was all Broadcast Television Journalist Association members and their guests along with the PR teams and network bigwigs and stars of the nominated shows.
