What's the best drama on TV? Is it the darkly personal Breaking Bad ? Or perhaps the epic and blood-soaked Game of Thrones? According to the less-than-aptly-named Critics' Choice Awards, the answer is both. The pair tied for Best Drama, beating out The Americans, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, and Homeland. (Yeah, we're surprised perennial critical darling Mad Men didn't get any love, too.)

Other notable winners:

  • Best Comedy Series: Big Bang Theory
  • Best Actor in a Comedy: Louis CK (Louie)
  • Best Actress in a Comedy: Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep)
  • Best Actor in a Drama: Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad)
  • Best Actress in a Drama: Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black)
