‘Thrones’ reigns at TCAs

HBO drama wins top prize – 'Homeland,' 'Louie' score two kudos

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” was named program of the year at the TCA Awards by the Television Critics Assn., while Showtime’s “Homeland” received two honors including top new show.

Claire Danes won individual achievement in drama kudos to make “Homeland” one of two recipients of two awards at the TCAs, handed out Saturday at the Beverly Hilton. FX’s “Louie” earned recognition for top comedy and for individual comedy achievement for Louis C.K.

“Thrones,” honored by the TCA in 2011 as top new program, was the only repeat winner from last year’s kudos.

“Breaking Bad,” starring TCA Awards emcee Bryan Cranston, scored the award for top achievement in drama, while PBS “Masterpiece” showcase “Downton Abbey,” still competing among movies, miniseries and specials, emerged victorious in that category.

Reality supremacy was bestowed upon Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” while ABC Family’s “Switched at Birth” drew youth programming laurels. CBS’ “60 Minutes” tick-tocked its way to the award for news and information skeins.

Two historical honors were presented at the TCAs: the Heritage Award to “Cheers” for its cultural and social impact, and the Career Achievement honor to latenight host David Letterman.

The TCA Awards take place annually during the summer edition of the critics group’s press tour.
