2015 Critics Choice TV Awards- The Winners

Taraji P. Henson with her Critics Choice Award for Best Actress in a TV Drama Series for her role on Empire as Cookie Lyon.
The 2015 Critics Choice Awards took place in Los Angeles  last night and while they are sadly not precursors for the people we can expect to win or be nominated at the upcoming 68th Primetime Emmy Awards in September, they still celebrate the best performances of the past TV season. 

It was a big night for Amazon's Transparent, HBO's Silicon Valley and AMC's Better Call Saul, all three winning two awards each. HBO's Olive Kitteridge walked away with three. It was great to see Bessie walk away with the Best TV Movie and what a triumph for Taraji P. Henson, finally getting an award for her brilliance, after her amazing turn as Cookie Lyon on Empire.
