Stars lit up the Beverly Hilton on Thursday for the fourth annual Critics' Choice Television Awards, presented by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. Stars and series creators who worked hard creating brilliant works of art gathered to receive recognition for their efforts.
However, even the most talented and celebrated celebs have to get some negative reviews once in a while. But how do they handle it? Do they even pay attention? ET talked to some of the biggest names in television to see how they dealt with critics.
"I try to avoid [reading reviews] because it's just not worth it," said acclaimed Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany, who ended up winning the award for Best Actress In A Drama Series.
Salem star Shane West agreed with Maslany saying, "I'm 36, I started [acting] when I was about 19 or 20, I learned a long time ago no to do that anymore. You'll eat yourself alive looking at that stuff."
Check out the video for more from the night's biggest stars about how they deal with reviews, both good and bad in the press.
