2011 Critics Choice TV Awards Nominations Announced!

2011 Critics Choice TV Awards Nominations Announced!

This spring, TVScreener.com was honored to become a member of the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, an offshoot of the Broadcast Film Critics Association. The BFCA hosts the annual Critics Choice Movie Awards that air on VH1, and our TV group will dole out our own set of accolades, via the first Critics Choice Television Awards.

The TV awards ceremony will be hosted by So You Think You Can Dance star Cat Deeley on June 20 at the Beverly Hills Hotel, and VH1.com will stream them live (June 20, 3:30PM ET), while on June 22, the ceremony airs on TV  at the ReelzChannel (8PM ET).

And here, our first class of nominees. I think it’s a great mix of shows, including some truly fantastic series and actors and actresses who have been overlooked at other TV awards ceremonies. I am particularly thrilled that we have nominated It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Charlie Day, one of the funniest guys on TV, and one who’s still flying a bit under the radar, for Best Actor in a Comedy Series, as well as shows and stars of shows like The Middle, Sons of Anarchy, Raising Hope, Archer and Justified, all so deserving of being called out as among the best TV has to offer.

Sound off in the comments about our nominees … do you like the mix? Who would you choose as the winner in each category? Are there shows and stars you think we missed?

And be sure to tune in for the first annual Critics Choice Television Awards on ReelzChannel on June 22!

    I wonder what the nomination timeline was because as promising as The Killing was in the beginning, the last couple episodes have become a chore to watch to the point I am not sure if it can redeem itself.

    And even though the last two seasons were two of the top three worst of the series, bold statement leaving Jeff Probst off the Best Reality Show Host list.

    Also, what does the Broadcast Television Journalists Association have against sports because I would take Pardon the Interruption and Sports Show with Norm MacDonald over any of the Best Talk Show nominees.
