critics choice awards nominations 2014 cbs fx Critics Choice Awards 2014 nominations: 'Big Bang Theory', 'Fargo', 'The Good Wife' and more

The 2014 Critics Choice Awards nominations for TV are out and the favorites shows among critics are clear. “The Big Bang Theory” takes top comedy honors with five nominations, including Kaley Cuoco and Mayim Bialik both getting nods for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
“The Good Wife” similarly earned five nominations in the drama category, which includes one for Josh Charles, whose character was killed off this past season. “Masters of Sex” was also met with five drama nominations. Newcomer “Fargo” and HBO’s “The Normal Heart” both earned five nominations each in the Movie or Mini-Series categories.
One interesting thing to note is neither “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” nor Andy Samberg were nominated for their respective comedy categories, after both won Golden Globes (though Andre Braugher was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series).
