2016 Critics’ Choice Awards: ‘Fargo,’ Mayim Bialik, Idris Elba among TV winners

Fargo season 2Tonight, the Critics’ Choice Awards are airing on A&E, and for those of you looking for reaction and results, we’ve got them for you below! This post (with analysis) is going to be updated throughout the night, so refresh the page as we go along to get some further information. For the most part, we have a lot of faith about this show and some of their choices, mostly because they do have a tendency to get it right more often than not.

Limited Series / TV Movie – “Fargo.” No shocker here, given that this was the undisputed favorite going into the show.

Actor, Limited Series / TV Movie – Idris Elba, “Luther.” Also no major surprise here, given the fact that Elba is super-popular. We know some were clamoring still for Oscar Isaac.

Actress, Limited Series / TV Movie – Kirsten Dunst, “Fargo.” Redemption following the Golden Globes disappointment.

Supporting Actor, Limited Series / TV Movie – Jesse Plemons, “Fargo.” No surprise here.

Supporting Actress, Limited Series / TV Movie – Jean Smart, “Fargo.” Or here.

Comedy Series – “Master of None.” Think of this as a nice nudge towards a second season.

Actor, Comedy Series – Jeffrey Tambor, “Transparent.” Call it a streak! The Globes is an exception.

Actress, Comedy Series – Rachel Bloom, “Crazy Ex Girlfriend.” She won the Globe, and therefore her streak continues.

Supporting Actress in a Comedy – Mayim Bialik, “The Big Bang Theory.” Given the source material this season, it’s hard to argue with the choice very much.

Supporting Actor in a Comedy – Andre Braugher, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” It’s nice to see the show is still getting some love!

Guest Actor / Actress in a Comedy – Timothy Olyphant, “The Grinder.” Really funny role. No surprise.

Drama Series – “Mr. Robot.” There’s quite a bit that everyone loves in the USA series right now.

Actor in a Drama – Rami Malek, “Mr. Robot.” We expect Rami to get an Emmy very soon, as well.

Actress in a Drama – Carrie Coon, “The Leftovers.” Finally, the HBO series manages to get a win.

Supporting Actor in a Drama – Christian Slater, “Mr. Robot.” We were rooting more for Christopher Eccleston, but he’s a worthy choice.

Supporting Actress in a Drama – Constance Zimmer, “UnREAL.” It’s nice to see this show getting some love.

Guest Actor / Actress in a Drama – Margo Martindale, “The Good Wife.” Another victory for Character Actress Margo Martindale!

Unstructured Reality Series – “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.” One of the most underrated series on TV.

Reality Competition Show – “The Voice.”

Talk Show – “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.”

Animated Series – “BoJack Horseman.” This news makes us ridiculously happy.

Reality Host – James Lipton, “Inside the Actors Studio.” A little random, but okay.
