Critics’ Choice Television Award Nominations Led by HBO with 21, Surprising Omissions

Critics’ Choice Television Award Nominations Led by HBO with 21, Surprising Omissions

Nominations are in for the third annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards, which will be held the evening of Monday, June 10, 2013 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) nominates and votes for the awards. For the first time the show, hosted by “Parks and Recreation” star Retta, will be webcast live on UStream.

It’s not surprising that usual critics’ fave HBO dominated the networks in nominations with 21, but FX came on strong with 19.  “American Horror Story: Asylum” (FX) and “The Big Bang Theory” (CBS) led the field with six nominations each, followed by “Parks and Recreation” (NBC) and “Top of the Lake” (Sundance) with five each, and “The Americans” (FX), “Breaking Bad” (AMC), “Game of Thrones” (HBO), “The Good Wife” (CBS), “Louie” (FX), “New Girl” (FOX) and “Political Animals” (USA) with four each.

Steven Soderbergh is having a good week as his well-reviewed Cannes competition film “Behind the Candelabra” landed a nom as best movie, along with best actors Michael Douglas and Matt Damon.

Shocking omissions include Best Drama Series, “Newsroom” and “Mad Men” (only Elizabeth Moss was nominated as best actress drama, along with best actress for mini-series “Top of the Lake”) and Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) as best actor drama. And on the comedy side, the much-lauded “Girls” was neither nominated as Best Comedy nor was the final season of “30 Rock.”

Really? News Room isn't even worth to be on TV, much less garner awards. One of the final episodes of the season starts with an argument while the men talk about the movie RUDY. They talk about how there isn't a dry male eye in the house when they put their jerseys on the Coach's desk and say, "Let Rudy play for me." Sorkin is so out of touch he doesn't even know the movie he parodies as that is not the place in the movie which touches men. It's when RUDY, after a four year struggle, plays ONE play. THAT'S when the men cry. Sorkin-script = Emporor's new clothes.
