Last night, "Orange Is the New Black" and "Fargo" took home most of the gold at the Broadcast Television Journalists Association's 4th annual Critics' Choice Television Awards--an important precursor to today's deadline for Emmy Awards nomination ballots (they are due by 10 PM Pacific).

Top honors went to "Breaking Bad" for Best Drama Series and "Orange Is the New Black" for Best Comedy Series.  "OITNB" also took home a Best Supporting Actress award for Kate Mulgrew and Best Guest Performer for Uzo Aduba.  

"Fargo" was lauded with the Best Mini-Series award, as well as acting honors for Billy Bob Thornton--who beat favorite Mark Ruffalo for "The Normal Heart"-- and Allison Tolman.  The BTJA this year made two separate categories for Best Mini-Series and Best Movie, which allowed "The Normal Heart" to nab the latter award.  Matt Bomer also received an award for Best Supporting Actor in a Movie or Mini-Series for his role in the HBO AIDS drama.

FX was the most awarded network, with five wins, followed by HBO with four.  Here's the complete list of the major winners from last night's gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel:
