The first annual Critics' Choice Television Awards brought together some of TV's best this afternoon at the Beverly Hills Hotel. The shows that took home the biggest wins of the day were best drama series Mad Men and best comedy series Modern Family, but many individual actors were honored for their work as well. Busy Philipps embraced Elijah Wood, who presented her with her statuette for best supporting actress in a comedy, before giving an emotional speech on the podium. Sarah Michelle Gellar also took the stage to dole out an honor as she gears up for her own return to the small screen this Fall. She'll star in the new show The Ringer, which requires her to play dual roles as twin sisters on the CW. Lots of stars took advantage of the chance to catch up and pose for pictures backstage. Busy cracked jokes with The Office's B.J. Novak, Jon Hamm got silly with his best leading actor in a drama award, and Modern Family's Sarah Hyland said hello to Community's Danny Pudi. TV fans who want to see all of today's action unfold can tune into the Critics' Choice Television Awards this Wednesday night at 8 p.m., EDT, on the Reelz Channel.
