2012 Critics’ Choice Television Awards: ‘Mad Men,’ ‘Homeland’ winners

"Mad Men" struck gold.

The 2012 Critics’ Choice Television Awards are being held in Los Angeles, and we’re going to have a full list of winners by the end of the night. This is only the second-annual ceremony designed to highlight the best of TV, and is being looked at in some ways as a precursor to the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards, whose nominations will be announced in mid-July.

Check back soon, as this list will be updated once more winners are announced.

Best Comedy Series – “Community” (NBC)

When it comes to analysis, we want to overall applaud the show for going out on a limb. The wins for “Community” and Esposito were welcome surprises, even if our fellow critics haven’t completely gotten over their “Modern Family” addiction just yet. On a different note, “The Voice” really won? Did any of these people see the show past the blind auditions?

Do you think some of the right people (and shows) were victorious? Sound off in the comment box below!
