2012 Critics' Choice Television Winners

A pretty good list, although in many ways, particularly the acting races in for Drama and Comedy, could be the exact same at the Emmys, or pretty close. That being said there were a few surprises especially Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch. Maybe Downton Abbey has paved the way for another British invasion, and it will be interesting if it repeats at the Emmys against American productions like Game Change and Hatfields & McCoys. On a personal note, I loved the win for Archer, as it is one of the most clever and interesting shows on television.

  1. Not bad list, but why Community for Best Comedy? I'm mystified. But it is good to see Zooey Deschanel win something for New Girl :)
