'Big Bang,' 'Good Wife,' Masters of Sex' & 'Fargo' Lead 2014 Critics' Choice Television Award Nominations

 

Believe it or not, it's once again time to start thinking about award shows. Nominations for 2014's Critics' Choice Television Awards have come in and while some old favorites continue to shine, such as CBS' 'The Big Bang Theory' and 'The Good Wife', critics also managed to dole out some love to a few newcomers, including Showtime's 'Masters of Sex' and FX's 'Fargo.'

The four series — along with Ryan Murphy's HBO pic 'The Normal Heart' all scored a leading five nods apiece with 'Big Bang' earning additional noms for four of its actors: Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Mayim Bialik, and guest star James Earl Jones. Meanwhile, 'Good Wife' was recognized for best drama, lead actress Julianna Margulies, supporting players Christine Baranski and Josh Charles as well as guest actress Carrie Preston.

It's also worth noting that three recently cancelled shows — ABC’s 'Trophy Wife,' CBS’ 'The Crazy Ones,' and FOX’s 'Enlisted' — each received one nod, making their demise even more upsetting than before.

Winners will be announced at a June 19 awards gala, which will be broadcast live on The CW at 8/7c. Cedric the Entertainer will serve as host.
