The Critics’ Choice Television Awards took place in Beverly Hills last night, coaxing some of TV's heavy hitters into pretty dresses and onto the red carpet. Because it's a fairly relaxed event — not even close to awards season and mostly an industry affair — attendees gussied themselves up, but not overly so. Stars like Christina Hendricks and Ginnifer Goodwin got to dominate the red carpet, which they attempted to do in some questionable black ensembles, while some lesser-known newcomers like Sarah Hyland and Ariel Winter looked appropriately pretty. Click through our red-carpet analysis of Lucy Liu, RuPaul, Allison Brie, and more in our slideshow.
Wearing a flattering "illusion" dress, that clever woman — not that she needs any help in the silhouette department.
She's so beautiful, yet so consistently dowdy on the red carpet. Also, sheer voluminous shoulder shrouds aren't a good look on anyone.
Her dress is pretty, plus she's one of the few women not wearing tacky platforms on the red carpet, so bravo to her.
A little too trapped between curtains and bed skirts, but flattering nonetheless.
This fairylike dress would be so much prettier without those mammoth platforms.
Oh look, Marchesa sent a package for you! Oh, wait ...
Beige-pink tiers would be a recipe for disaster on just about anyone else. In other news, that bustle-tail is awesome.
That awkward bit of fabric covering up her décolletage seems unnecessary.
If anyone can pull this off, it's Ginnifer, but even she has trouble with this one. She lost us somewhere between the fishnet panel, the hairy-looking gold print, and the puffy bow.
Quite possibly the best dressed of the evening. Just feast your eyes on that impeccable fit.
Maude and Judd Apatow
Judd told Vulture this week, "I think of it as a lifelong assignment to try to be there for my kids." Here's his plan in action with 14-year-old Maude.
This looks like a dress version of her CFDA Awards outfit, but she looks hot, so props for consistency.
After watching her bustle around the Campbell household in violently colored peignoirs for the last few months, seeing her in some sophistocated black is a nice change.
We're not totally sure why this dress makes Emmy's lower half look so oddly stunted — maybe it's the placement of that scary sash-ruffle? In any case, her dress appears to have an extra tail that's trying to escape.
Oh dear, she usually looks so pretty. But really, what's the point of that waist-tie if it doesn't actually cinch anything?
In case you were wondering what Carrie Preston's dress would've looked like without the mesh panel.
The three-quarter length of the flowy sleeves and skirt make this whole outfit look depressingly 75 percent. Bones, can Angela dress you next time?
Yet another outfit that would be improved with more delicate shoes.
No one can pull off yellow quite like a redhead, but this dress could've used less volume on top — she's getting dangerously close to sparkly wings territory.
See! Walking proof that looking great in white does not necessitate several agressive rounds with the spray tanner.
This is what Zooey Deschanel's dress would look like if you cut off the skirt and glued it the chest area.
