Parenthood's Monica Potter took home the best supporting actress in a drama series award tonight at the Critics' Choice Television Awards after a season that hit especially close to home. Monica, who had a breast-cancer scare last year, portrayed her character Kristina's battle with the disease this year on the drama. See what Monica told us about the "incredible" opportunity to bring awareness to the disease and how women who have been touched by breast cancer reacted to the show's treatment of the illness.
Monica Potter and Peter Krause got into beach gear to film Parenthood in Maui on Tuesday. Peter went shirtless for the sandy day of filming, while Monica covered up in a black swimsuit. The costars are on location for the series, which is currently in its fourth season and is exploring a variety of story lines, including Monica's character Kristina Braverman's battle with cancer and her onscreen sister-in-law's love life. Parenthood was one of your favorite family-themed TV show's of 2012, though it wasn't up for any awards at Sunday's Golden Globes. It may, however, be recognized at the NAACP Image Awards on Feb. 1, as Joy Bryant is up for best supporting actress in a drama.
