It's not an Emmy, but it's a start. On Monday, June 18, the Broadcast Television Journalists Association awarded their Best Drama and Best Comedy Series Critics' Choice Awards to Homeland and Community, respectively. Keep reading for all of the award winners.
These awards mark the first prominent wins for both series -- freshman drama Homeland
hasn't had much of a chance for awards yet, while Community
has been consistently ignored by the fools who hand out such trophies. The voters are not exactly the same for the Emmys and the Critics' Choice Awards, but these wins still can't hurt Community
when the big prizes come along.
Other big winners at the Critics' Choice Awards ceremony were Breaking Bad
, Parks and Recreation
and Modern Family
, each of which scored two awards.
Of course, no respectable awards bash could be complete without the air of controversy. And of course Community
was willing to provide it. Series creator and recently-fired Community
executive producer Dan Harmon was absent from the show. Harmon tweeted a brief explanation after the win
: "Congrats, Community, and thank you, critics. Sorry I was unable to have been invited!"

folks in attendance didn't exactly forget Dan Harmon though. Star Joel McHale accepted the award while saying, "I want to thank Dan Harmon, who created the greatest show on television."
