Critics Choice TV Awards go to “The Americans,” Taraji, “Bessie,” “Olive Kitteridge”

Share

Awards handed out last night. Winners, losers, people who weren’t even nominated (Mad Men, Grace and Frankie). Why? Who knows why? Does it all matter? No. But it kept an audience at home on Sunday night in good air conditioning. In Columbus Ohio there’s a 10pm curfew. Did you know that? So these shows pacify the public until they fall asleep. Congrats to everyone. I don’t know who T.J. Miller even is, but congrats to him/ her too.
