'Glee' leads North American TV critics' award winners
Monday 02 August 2010
In a night that might forecast the winners at the upcoming Emmy Awards on August 29, the Television Critics Association (TCA) handed out 11 awards for its favorite shows on July 31, in Beverly Hills. The hit Fox series
Glee took three of the top prizes.
The event's biggest winner, Glee, received Program of the Year award and Outstanding New Program. The Individual Achievement in a Comedy recognition went to Glee actress Jane Lynch. The show is nominated for 19 Emmys.
The 26th annual awards happen during the "summer press tours," July 28-August 8, when the television networks promote fall programming with presentations including footage, stars of the shows and executives.
In votes similar to some of this year's Golden Globes, other series that were honored included ABC's Modern Family and in the drama category, actress Julianna Margulies won the award for her role in the crime drama CBS's The Good Wife.
There was a tie in the drama category with the sci-fi adventure series Lost, which ended this year, and Breaking Bad starring Bryan Cranston as a drug-dealing man with cancer from AMC, the network that airs another acclaimed series, Mad Men.
Other winners include HBO's World War II miniseries The Pacific, Discovery Network's nature series Life for Outstanding Achievement in News and Information, and for youth programming, Nick Jr.'s Yo Gabba Gabba.
Also, M*A*S*H received a Heritage Award for the cultural and social impact the program has had on society, and veteran actor James Garner ( The Rockford Files) was honored for his Career Achievement on the small screen.
