Kaley Cuoco, Big Bang, Josh Charles, Good Wife, Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black, Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad CBS/BBC/AMC

It's the usual suspects...and we're not complaining!

The nominees for the 2014 Critics' Choice Television Awards were announced on Wednesday morning, and plenty of awards season darlings found themselves on the list, including Breaking Bad (Yeah bitch!), The Good Wife and Game of Thrones, as well as The Big Bang Theory. And we weren't too surprised to see True Detective and The Normal Heart each earn noms. But there were some surprises, like the multiple noms for Mom and Lifetime's Flowers in the Attic (Seriously!).

In addition to some first-time nominees, including Scandal's Bellamy Young (Yay Mellie!), The Mindy Project's Chris Messina (Hip choice!) Broad City's Ilana Glazer (Hipster choice!), several stars from now-canceled series landed noms, like Robin Williams (The Crazy Ones), Albert Tsai (Trophy Wife) and Keith David (Enlisted). Plus, a few actors whose characters we've lost this past TV season (RIP!) were recognized, including stars from The Good Wife and Sons of Anarchy.
