Smallscreen stars come by ‘Choice’

TV 'Community' delights in honors

Whether it was the lure of making a public appearance during the Emmy nominations, or simply a bunch of TV stars ready to come out of their end-of-season cocoons, turnout was strong Monday at the second annual Critics Choice Television Awards.

Particularly giddy were Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs and Danny Pudi of NBC’s “Community,” which won the comedy series award from the Broadcast TV Journalists Assn. Accepting despite the noticeable absence of departed showrunner Dan Harmon — who later tweeted he was “unable to have been invited” — McHale held the trophy in admiration.

“We really appreciate this crystal representation of an ejaculation of stars,” McHale enthused.

Supporting drama actor champ Giancarlo Esposito of “Breaking Bad” delivered the most inspirational acceptance speech, while movies-mini winner Julianne Moore, who played 2008 veep candidate Sarah Palin in “Game Change” ripped the top quip.

“Mostly, I’d like to say you can’t give any kind of performance without a great story,” Moore said, “so I’d like to thank the Republican Party for an amazing, American political story.”
