Critics In Lock Step With Emmy Voters
It was like the Emmys all over again as Man Men won the best drama award and Modern Family the best comedy award at the Critics' Choice Television Awards in Beverly Hills on Monday. The two shows took top Emmy honors last September and are expected to dominate the field when this year's Emmy nominees are announced on July 14. Mad Men also won awards for best actor in a drama (Jon Hamm) and best supporting actress in a drama (Christina Hendricks). Although it was nominated in six comedy categories, Modern Family won only the top award. The awards ceremony was not carried by any broadcast or cable network but was streamed on the Internet.
