Allison Janney, Orange Is The New Black And Fargo Among Winners At 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Awards

20 June 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first major awards ceremony honoring this past year’s accomplishments on the small screen took place last night as Cedric the Entertainer hosted the 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Awards from the Beverly Hilton. I’ve always preferred the Critics’ Choice Awards to the Emmys, just because my views tend to line up more with the members of the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. This year was no different, as a number of highly deserving actors, actresses and shows were honored.

Allison Janney was the clear winner last night, taking home two Critics’ Choice TV Awards. The actress won Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her devastating work on Showtime’s Masters of Sex and also tied with Orange is the New Black actress Kate Mulgrew for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance as the title character on CBS’s Mom.

FX’s Fargo also had a great night, »

HBO, FX and Netflix Duke It Out At Critics' Choice TV Awards: Who Won?

19 June 2014 7:35 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Some of the biggest shows on television went head to head. Here's who came out on top.

All the hottest names in TV turned out for the 2014 Critics Choice Television Awards on June 19, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Cedric the Entertainer hosted the gala event presented by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, and the night was really a battle between two cable channels.

Premiere pay-cable network HBO had a whopping 18 nominations, but in a show of strength for a smaller cable channel, FX topped that with 19. Meanwhile, the big contenders for individual shows were the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, the CBS drama The Good Wife, FX's crime dramedy Fargo, Showtime's drama series Masters Of Sex and HBO's The Normal Heart, all getting five noms each.

Also, Netflix struck a blow against the traditional television hierarchy with their original series Orange Is The New Black competing in several key categories.

Looking, Ep. 1.08: “Looking Glass” is more than half empty

9 March 2014 11:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Looking, Season 1, Episode 8: “Looking Glass

Directed by Andrew Haigh

Written by Michael Lannon & Tanya Saracho

Airs Sundays at 10:30 Pm on HBO

Looking’s season finale ends where it all began, with Patrick and Richie living together as roommates, watching The Golden Girls on their laptop in bed. For a relationship that has been framed as the central one of the show, the writers seem not to be very interested in it. Patrick’s season long arc was to get himself into a half-hearted love triangle with a hot British video game designer and an even hotter Mexican barber. Agustín spent most of the season moping around and being casually racist before being brutally dumped by a blank slate of a character whom I’ve just now learned is named Frank. It would have really served the show to focus just one episode on Patrick and Agustín’s friendship, »
