The Voice Of TV: Awards shows come in the dozens these days. Every year there seems to be a couple of new awards ceremonies, most simply replicating the major shows like the Academy Awards, Golden Globes and Emmys. We’ve already seen what disasters can be like, see the first annual Comedy Awards. The Critics Choice Television Awards aim to look past playing favorites and choose the shows that rightfully so deserve the awards they are nominated for
The 2015 Critics' Choice Television Awards aired on A&E tonight, live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
Hosted by Cat Deeley, the fifth annual edition of this ceremony honored the very best on the small screen, with awards doled out based on the voting of those who watch the small screen for a living.
