The Big Bang Theory won awards for best comedy series, best supporting actor (Simon Helberg), and best supporting actress (Kaley Cuoco) during Monday nights Critic’s Choice TV Awards.
While that top rated CBS comedy series was an obvious selection in the comedy category, it wasn’t the only big winner.
As fans tuned in for the Game of Thrones finale and the final season of Breaking Bad, those shows managed to share a joint best drama win.
Game Of Thrones and Breaking Bad managed to beat out other crowd pleasers including Downton Abbey, Homeland, The Americans, and The Good Wife.
On the British side of the awards ceremony, The Hour received three nods including best mini-series, best actress (Romola Garai), and best actor (Dominic West).
If you didn’t have time to watch the Critics Choice TV Awards last night, don’t fret: we have the full list of winners. Some of the choices probably won’t surprise you, such as Louis C.K. for his FX show Louie.
The comedian turned TV showrunner had an amazing year, at one point earning $1 million from a “pay what you want” comedy album release.
