The TV awards season is upon us and Netflix is looking to continue its slow-moving rise as a studio, on top of being the number one streaming service, with hit after hit taking home awards. Last night, Cedric the Entertainer hosted the Critics' Choice Television Awards, which saw eagerly anticipated wins for shows like Breaking Bad, Orange is the New Black, and Fargo push them into Emmy voters radars. Emmy nominations are just weeks away, so Critics' Choice wins are a good sign.

Orange is the New Black was the show everyone was watching out for. Besides winning in the Best Comedy category, the show also took home a few individual awards for performances, including Kate Mulgrew (who tied with Alison Janney) and Uzo Aduba.  

Breaking Bad, the hit AMC show that finished its stellar run earlier this year, took home the top prize, Best Drama.
