The Critics’ Choice Television Awards — created by the recently established Broadcast Television Critics Association — were designed in part to be a counterpoint to the annual Emmy Awards (and the more established TCA Awards). The winners of the first annual CCTAs, however, echoed several Emmy winners of the recent past: AMC’s Mad Men took home Best Drama; ABC’s Modern Family won Best Comedy; Best Actress in a Comedy went to 30 Rock‘s Tina Fey; and The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons earned Best Actor in a Comedy.

The majority of winners, however, have not snagged an Emmy award — or, in some cases, even a nomination — but remain long-standing fan favorites. Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm and Christina Hendricks won Best Actor and Supporting Actress in a Drama, respectively; Hendricks actually tied in her category with Margo Martindale from FX’s Justified. John Noble of Fringe won Best Supporting Actor in a Drama, and Cougar Town‘s Busy Philipps won Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy. Check out the full list of winners below:
