'Breaking Bad', 'True Detective', 'Orange Is the New Black' and 'Veep' scored big at the 30th Television Critics Association Awards (TCAs) on Saturday (19th July). But can the awards give us any hint as to who will win at the Emmys in August?
The 30th Television Critics Association Awards (TCAs) was held on Saturday (19th July). The ceremony was held at the Beverly Hills Hilton in Los Angeles. With the 66th Primetime Emmys looming, have the TCAs given us some clues as to who is likely to win on 25th August?
Breaking Bad won Outstanding Achievement in Drama for the second year in a row.
Breaking Bad won Program of the Year, for the second year in a row. The program won the TCA award against stiff competition including True Detective, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife and Orange Is the New Black. Bryan Cranston was also nominated for Individual Achievement in Drama. The series has also been nominated for the Outstanding Drama Series at the Emmys; Cranston is up for the Lead Actor in a Drama Series Emmy; and Aaron Paul has been nominated for Supporting Actor. Whilst this is the last time Breaking Bad is up for an Emmy, it is up against stiff competition for Best Drama Series including Game of Thrones, True Detective, Mad Men and House of Cards.
Taylor Schilling in Orange Is the New Black.
True Detective, which starred Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as Louisiana detectives, is likely to clean up at the Emmys. At the TCAs, the HBO show won the award for Outstanding Achievement in a Miniseries and also the Individual Achievement in Drama with McConaughey. At the Emmys, the show is up for Outstanding Drama Series and both McConaughey and Harrelson have been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor.
Orange Is the New Black is nominated for 12 Emmys including Outstanding Drama Series. At the TCAs, the show was nominated for Program of the Year but losing out to Breaking Bad was no shame. In the end the show took home Outstanding New Program. However, the odds are definitely in the series' favour and it is likely to take home at least a few of the 12 Emmy awards it is nominated for.
True Detective won two awards at the TCAs.
