Critics Choice Television Awards Nominations Announced: ‘Luther’ Picks Up 2, ‘Scandal’ Gets None

Critics Choice Television Awards Nominations Announced: 'Luther' Picks Up 2, 'Scandal' Gets None

Sorry Scandal fans, no nominations for that show at all, in any category. The main criteria is that the programs must have aired between June 1, 2011 and May 31, 2012, so Scandal certainly qualifies.

Is this in any way a foretelling of what the upcoming list of Emmy Award nominations might look like? Well, comparing both winners lists from last year, 2011, they are quite similar, matching in several categories, so we'll see.

Of note on the second annual Critics Choice Television Awards nominations list, some familiar faces like Regina King (Southland, though in the supporting actress category, not lead actress, as several of you have been calling for), Idris Elba (lead actor movie or miniseries, Luther), Giancarlo Esposito (supporting actor drama, Breaking Bad), Loretta Devine (guest performer, Grey’s Anatomy), Don Cheadle (lead actor comedy, House of Lies), Damon Wayans Jr. (supporting actor comedy, Happy Endings), Nick Cannon (host reality TV, America’s Got Talent), and RuPaul (host reality TV, RuPaul’s Drag Race).

So we've got some representation, especially in major categories. Luther also picked up a nomination for best movie/miniseries; so that's 2 for our man Idris to be happy about. And yes, I know the above photo is from the Golden Globes.

The second annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards ceremony will be held on Monday, June 18, 2012, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
