Hey Legion! I was lucky enough to attend the 5th Annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards last night, which ran on A&E. What a night! We ended up sitting between Mae Whitman from Parenthood and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Lady Sif herself, Jaimie Alexander from Thor and  and the upcoming series, Blindspot on NBC. There was some serious geeking out at our table! I have the list of winners for you, including the one voted on by the audience, Most Bingeworthy Series. The awards are handed out by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, of which I am a very proud board member.

Highlights of the evening were Charlize Theron handing out the Critics’ Choice LOUIS XIII Genius Award to Seth McFarlane, Jeffrey Tambor’s wonderful acceptance speech for Transparent and getting to meet Face Off judge Ve Neill after the show. Check out the list of winners below.
