‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘True Detective’ Win at TCA Awards

'Breaking Bad,' 'True Detective' Win TCA

For the second year in a row, AMC’s “Breaking Bad” was named program of the year by the Television Critics Assn. at the 30th annual TCA Awards, held on Saturday at the Beverly Hilton.

Its main rival in the Emmy race for best drama, HBO’s “True Detective” took home the prize for outstanding miniseries (the TCA members don’t have to follow Emmy category rules), while Matthew McConaughey was honored for his acting work.

Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” was crowned best new program, while CBS’s “The Good Wife” won a measure of redemption by being named top drama, after being shut out in the Emmy race.

HBO’s “Veep” was a double winner, grabbing awards for Julia Louis-Dreyfus as well as the show itself, which tied for best comedy with FX’s “Louie.”

The night’s other winners included Fox and Nat Geo’s “COSMOS: A SpaceTime Odyssey” for news and information; Logo’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race” for reality; and ABC Family’s “The Fosters” for youth programming.

NBC’s long-running “Saturday Night Live,” which will start its 40th season in the fall, won the org’s Heritage Award, and James Burrows was honored with the Career Achievement Award.

With four total, HBO won the most awards of any network.
