McConaughey scoops top Critics’ Award


Matthew McConaughey was among top winners at the 2014 Television Critics Awards.

The annual prize-giving presented by America’s Broadcast Television Journalists Association got underway at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California Thursday night, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer.

Matthew took home Best Actor in a Drama Series for his role in HBO’s True Detective, beating out heavy-hitters like Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Hugh Dancy (Hannibal), Freddie Highmore (Bates Motel), Matthew Rhys (The Americans) and Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex).

The cast of Breaking Bad was celebrating later in the evening, however, as the show took home the coveted award for Best Drama Series, a category with stiff competition from Game of Thrones, True Detective, The Americans, The Good Wife and Masters of Sex.

Masters actress Allison Janney got some attention for the show, however, turning heads as she told the crowd, “I just came,” when she accepted the award for Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series for the Showtime programme.

The actress also shared the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series with Orange is the New Black’s Kate Mulgrew.
