The Critic's Choice Awards were announced this morning, and with a few exceptions ("Glee" "The Office") and omissions ("Cougar Town" "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"), the critics got most of it right (Courteney Cox and Busy Phillips were nominated, fortunately, and I have to assume that "Breaking Bad" was not eligible this year, otherwise heads will be broken).

Of course, the critics also cheated a little by handing out ten nominations in each the Best Comedy and Best Drama categories, which diminishes the prestige of a nominee by giving practically everyone a gold star (after all, "Fringe" was nominated). But any awards ceremony that sees fit to honor the likes of Connie Britton, Kyle Chandler, and Ron Effing Swanson gets a thumbs up and a knowing wink from me.
