2012 Critic's Choice TV Winners Announced


The second annual Critic's Choice Television Award winners were revealed last night, with the big winners being Showtime's espionage drama Homeland, AMC's series of drug-fueled misadventures known as Breaking Bad, and the struggling NBC comedy Community. In what may be a preview for this year's Emmy broadcast, Zooey Deschanel and Amy Poehler tied for the Best Actress in a Comedy award. Last year's Emmy winners for Best Supporting Actor and Actress in a Comedy, Modern Family's Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen, picked up those same trophies last night.
