The Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA), a new offshoot of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, today announced the winners of the first-ever Critics’ Choice Television Awards and Mad Men was honored with three wins across the Best Drama, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress categories.
Mad Men faced stiff competition in the Drama category: In addition to AMC’s own The Killing and The Walking Dead, the drama faced down shows like HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and FX’s Justified to win the award. The acting categories were no less fierce: Jon Hamm beat out Boardwalk Empire‘s Steve Buscemi and Dexter‘s (Showtime) Michael C. Hall for the Best Actor statuette, while Christina Hendricks tied for Best Supporting Actress along with Justified‘s Margo Martindale against actresses like The Killing‘s Michelle Forbes and Big Love‘s (HBO) Chloe Sevigny.
