The Broadcast Television Journalists Association and NPACT, the trade organization serving producers of nonfiction entertainment content, will spin off the “reality show” category of the Critics’ Choice Awards into its own standalone show, the groups announced Friday. The inaugural Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards are set for Sunday, June 2, 2019, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
On the TV side, Game of Thrones took Best Drama Series. The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story swept up, as expected, taking Best Limited Series and acting prizes for Sarah Paulson, Sterling K. Brown and Courtney B. Vance. Best Comedy Series went to HBO’s Silicon Valley.
The Broadcast Television Journalists Association has announced the nominations for its annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards, with HBO leading the networks with 27 nominations and FX coming in second with 17 nominations.
The two shows, both critical darlings, took the respective best drama and comedy prizes at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards during a luncheon in Beverly Hills on Monday. In what amounts to a reflection of last year’s Emmys and a bold prediction of this year’s ceremony. Mad Men and Modern Family won the top prizes at a new event organized by television critics.
