Critics Choice Television Awards Shows Support to the LGBTQ TV Community

Last Thursday, America’s Critics Choice Television Awards showed plenty of support to the LGBTQ TV community, as several of the top awards went to queer-centric shows and out actors.

Orange Is the New Black, the Netflix series won Best Comedy Series, Best Supporting Actress In a Comedy Series for Kate Mulgrew, who plays “Red,” and Best Guest Performer In a Comedy Series for Uzo Abuda. Abuda, who plays “Crazy Eyes,” was up-graded to series regular on season 2 of the series, which debuted on June 6.

Other LGBTQ winners included Matt Bomer and Jim Parsons. Bomer took home the prize for Best Supporting Actor In a Movie or Mini-series for The Normal Heart. The HBO film also won Best Movie. Parsons won Best Actor In a Comedy Series, a prize he lost to Louis CK last year.

Archer, Orphan Black, Scandal, and American Horror Story: Coven also took home prizes during the ceremony.
