Yesterday’s first annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards was quite the star-studded event, one where objects-of-desire like Jon Hamm and Christina Hendricks both took home prizes. While all the celebs congregated in one room for the luncheon and awards ceremony, the real action took place backstage, where our own Kate Spencer was holding court with virtually all of the winners. She even got a few minutes to chat with Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey and, being the Twi-hard that she is, she asked him if there was a rivalry beginning to brew between himself and fellow lycanthrope Taylor Lautner. “Do I feel a competition?,” he said with a mischievous glint in his eye. “Not really, no, because I know I would win.” Oh SNAP! Ball’s in your court now, Taylor.
Well, somebody’s in a good mood! The inaugural Critics’ Choice Television Awards went down yesterday—airing live on Vh1.com, with trophies going to a mix of familiar and not so familiar names. Mad Men walked away with Best Drama, Best Actor (Jon Hamm) and Best Supporting Actress (Christina Hendricks), though Hendricks actually split the award with Margo Martindale of Justified in a surprise tie. Modern Family won Best Comedy, with Tina Fey, Julianna Marguiles, Jim Parsons, Busy Phillips and Neil Patrick Harris nabbing the other acting awards. Of the stars, only Fey and Parsons have won Emmys for their work, so it’ll be interesting to see what influence these victories have on this year’s ceremony. After all, the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards have always been a strong predictor of Oscar odds. Check out the complete list of winners and check out photos from the event in the gallery below.
