The Broadcast Television Journalists Association have made their nominations for the 2nd annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards. Winners will accept their prizes on Monday, June 18th at the BTJA awards dinner at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

NBC led the broadcast network field with 14 nominations, with six for "Community," followed by ABC with 13 and Fox with 12. HBO dominated the cable networks with 12 nominations, followed by AMC and FX with 11 nominations apiece.

Among my fave shows, most were represented except for notable shutouts, NBC's Broadway musical drama "Smash," AMC's controversial "The Killing," starring the great Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnamon, and "The Walking Dead," which is more than its zombie content, as well as Showtime's "The Borgias," Neil Jordan's gorgeously mounted, entertaining and yes, sexy, historic biodrama that can't get no respect. I'd argue that it's more coherent than HBO's sprawling "Game of Thrones."

The Critics’ Choice Television Awards voters looked at programs that aired between June 1, 2011 and May 31, 2012. Bob Bain will executive produce the show for Bob Bain Productions.
