The biggest stars of television hit the red carpet for the Critics Choice Television Awards in Beverly Hills. Julianne Moore, Lucy Liu, and Kate Walsh were just a handful of the celebs attending the event. For some, the reason to attend award shows is to hopefully pick up a prize. But for Cloris Leachman, it's to see old friends, and the free food. SOUNDBITE: Cloris Leachman, actress, saying (English): "Seeing people, people I've known, they're nice to see. The food, because as I said I don't go anywhere where they don't feed me." And actor Kevin Costner had the same idea. SOUNDBITE: Kevin Costner, actor, saying (English): "I want to get in out of this sun right here and get a drink." Julianne Moore, nominated for her portrayal of Sarah Palin in the HBO film "Game Change," says the limitations of her role made her job easier. SOUNDBITE: Julianne Moore, actress, saying (English): "Really it was our job to represent who she was during that period of time, during that election. And I was really helped by having certain kind of strict parameters." The Critics Choice Television award winners are chosen by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association.
