Some people may have argued that Orange Is the New Black is not a comedy series. Others may have argued that it is not a television series at all, but a series for the Internet that lacks many of the restrictions that television executives are forced to impose. But none of that seemed to matter very much to the nation’s TV critics as they awarded the Netflix series trophies for Best Comedy Series along with best supporting actress in a comedy series for Kate Mulgrew (in a tie with Mom’s Allison Janney) and Best Guest Performance in a Comedy for Uzo Aduba. Other awards handed out by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association included: Best Drama Series: Breaking Bad (HBO); Best Actor in a Drama: Matthew McConaughey: for his performance in True Detective; Best Actress in a Drama: Tatiana Maslany" for her performance in Orphan Black; Best Actor in a Comedy series: Jim Parsons, for his role in CBS’s The Big Bang Theory; Best Actress in a Comedy Series: Julia Louis-Dreyfus for HBO’s Veep.
