Critics’ Choice TV kudos add six categories

A year ago, for their first Critics’ Choice Television Awards, the Broadcast Television Journalists Assn. distinguished themselves by creating an award for most exciting new series, nominating eight shows that hadn’t premiered yet or even produced anything more than a pilot.

This time around, the BTJA has decided to push on quantity, adding six categories to this year’s event, which will be held June 18 at the Beverly Hilton.

The new categories are 1) movie or miniseries, 2) actor in a movie or miniseries, 3) actress in a movie or miniseries, 4) drama guest performer, 5) comedy guest performer and 6) animated series.

RingerNominations for these and the existing categories in comedy, drama, reality and talk will be announced June 5.
