Jaw-Dropping Critics’ Choice TV Awards Nominations- Reaction and Predictions

With the Emmys another 4 months away, the normal precursor The Critics’ Choice TV Awards have thrown a massive curveball, leaving out the frontrunners in almost every category. That means no nomination for Modern Family, Louie and The Big Bang Theory in Best Comedy Series, while House of Cards, Mad Men, Downton Abbey and The Affair all miss out in Best Drama Series. In the leading actor categories, Jim Parsons, Louis C.K., William H. Macy, Billy Crystal and Matt LeBlanc all miss out in Comedy and Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Kyle Chandler, Dominic West and Terrence Howard all are snubbed in Drama. On the Best Actress side, there is no Amy Poehler, Edie Falco, Ellie Kemper, Jane Fonda or Lily Tomlin in Comedy, while in Drama there is no Ruth Wilson, Claire Danes or Robin Wright. The number of major omissions are shocking, something that makes predicting the winner seemingly easier, but does it mean that we can’t take this precursor seriously? I would say so.
