With Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black" among the biggest winners at the recent Critics' Choice Awards, the ceremony was another reminder that the television model has shifted — ushering in what a number of critics are calling a new golden age of television.
Matthew McConaughey, honored for his work on HBO's "True Detective," appeared to acknowledge the shift when he said in his acceptance speech: “I’ve done film, film, film and people ask, ‘Why did you go to TV?’ Quality. That introduction to character that so patiently unfolds becomes watercooler conversation and anticipation of the next episode — that’s what TV is giving audiences.”
