The Critic’s Choice TV Noms love Breaking Bad, Parks and Rec, and Community!

Today’s Critic’s Choice TV Award nominations gave a big ole finger to the Emmys with nominations for a ton of newbies and deserving shows that are always ignored by the Academy. Among those who are often snubbed that the Critic’s supported today are Community which lead with 6 nominations plus performers from Happy Endings (Casey Wilson & Damon Wayans Jr., yay!), Fringe (John Noble), Sons of Anarchy (Katey Sagal, Charlie Huffman, Maggie Siff), SouthLAnd (Regina King, Lucy Liu), and Shameless (Emmy Rossum, Chloe Webb). New show grabbing a lot of love include New Girl with 3 nods including Zooey Deschanel and the hilarious Max Greenfield, Girls, Homeland, and Veep… Following Community (a show I don’t really like, but totally like several of its performers, most notably Allison Brie and Jim Rash), Parks and Recreation and Breaking Bad both totaled 5 nods with The Good Wife and Modern Family nabbing 4 mentions… Big ups to Cheryl Hines from Suburgatory, Michelle Dockrey from Downton Abbey, Cat Deely and So You Think You Can Dance, and RuPaul who are all in the running as well… For more on the show and the nominees which will be announced June 18th, head here, and take a look at all the contenders below.
