Which is the better drama, Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones? That could be the topic of some pretty lively debate, but if you ask the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, they'd come back with a tie. The two cable dramas tied for Best Drama at the Critics' Choice Television Awards this year. The Big Bang Theory managed to come out on top among the comedies, indicating that the critics and the millions (and millions) of TV viewers who watch the comedy are like-minded in that regard.

The Big Bang Theory also won for Best Supporting Actor and Actress in a comedy series, though Kaley Cuoco shares her award with the hilariously underrated Eden Sher, who plays Sue Heck in The Middle. As a fan of the ABC comedy, I'm especially happy to see that Sher was recognized there. Meanwhile, Patton Oswalt won for Best Guest Performer in a Comedy series for his stint on Parks and Rec. I like to think that it was his brilliant Star Wars monologue that secured him that award. Behind the Candelabra won for Best Miniseries, as well as for Best Actor in a TV Movie/Miniseries, for Michael Douglas' starring role as Liberace.

Among the repeat winners, Archer (Best Animated Comedy), The Voice (Best Reality Series - competition), Tom Bergeron (Best Reality Show Host) and Louis C.K. (Best Actor in a Comedy series).
