ABC's hit Modern Family was named best comedy series and AMC's Mad Men won the best drama series award today at the inaugural Critics' Choice Television Awards.

Mad Men's Jon Hamm was named best actor in a drama, while Jim Parsons took home the prize for best actor in a comedy series for his work on The Big Bang Theory.

Julianna Margulies won best actress in a drama for The Good Wife, while Tina Fey was named best actress for 30 Rock.

Despite having five of its cast members nominated for supporting roles, Modern Family failed to win any acting awards. Neil Patrick Harris was named best supporting actor in a comedy for How I Met Your Mother, while Busy Philipps of Cougar Town won best supporting actress.

In the drama categories, John Noble of Fringe was named best
supporting actor, while the supporting-actress category ended in a tie between Christina Hendricks of Mad Men and Margo Martindale of Justified.
