The Good Wife was named Favorite Network TV Drama, and star Josh Charles was named Favorite Dramatic TV Actor.
Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) of The Walking Dead was named Favorite TV Anti-hero, while the show took home the award for Favorite Cable TV Drama. The Big Bang Theory was also a double winner. It was named Favorite Network TV Comedy, and star Kaley Cuoco was named Favorite Comedic TV Actress.
Vampire Diaries stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder made light of what could have potentially been an awkward moment. The real-life exes won the award for Favorite On-Screen Chemistry for their TVD counterparts, and used their joint acceptance speech as an opportunity to chronicle their relationship. "Our characters are still dating on the show," Somerhalder noted, while Dobrev added: "It's a good thing it's not awkward!" Somerhalder gave Dobrev a friendly peck on the cheek before they left the stage.
Other winners included Ellen DeGeneres (Favorite Daytime TV Host), Stephen Colbert (Favorite Late Night Talk Show Host), Orange Is the New Black (Favorite Streaming Series) and Homeland (Favorite Premium Cable Show).
