The Critics’ Choice Awards Loves Themselves Some ‘Community’ and ‘Parks & Recreation’

By

If only the Critics’ Choice Television Awards decided all television decisions. Garnering six nominations, Community was the most nominated show. Parks & Recreation was a close second, with five nominations. This isn’t necessarily surprising as they’ve been consistently the two most critically lauded sitcoms. A little bit more surprising is newcomers New Girl and Girls both got nominated for best series and received four nominations total. Note to TV writers: put “girl” in your title and you’re guaranteed all the acclaim. The winners get announced on June 18. The full list of comedy nominees is after the jump.
