The list of nominees for the 3rd Annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards were announced today by The Broadcast Television Journalists Association.

A hat-tip to Don Cheadle (House of Lies), Regina King (Southland), Angela Bassett (Betty & Coretta), Alfre Woodard (Steel Magnolias), and RuPaul (RuPaul’s Drag Race), who are all nominees this year for their work in their respective categories.

No nominations for Scandal, you ask? Well, no! Sorry.

Cable TV wins again (no surprise) with HBO and FX leading all nominations with 21 and 19 respectively.

The winners will be revealed at the Monday, June 10 event in Beverly Hills hosted by Parks and Recreation star Retta - aka Marietta Sirleaf (her photo above; and yes, she is related to Liberia's first woman president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf).
