On Saturday, the 30th annual TCA Awards named Breaking Bad program of the year for the second year in a row. However, Bad did not face off against True Detective—its biggest rival in the upcoming Emmy race—which instead took home the award for outstanding miniseries. Matthew McConaughey was also honored for his work in True Detective.
Netflix hit Orange is the New Black won for best new program, and the Emmy-snubbed The Good Wife was named top drama.
In the comedy category, Veep tied with Louie for best comedy, while Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus was also honored.
Other winners included Saturday Night Live, which snagged the Television Critics Association’s Heritage Award, Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey, which won for news and information, and RuPaul’s Drag Race, which was honored in reality programming.
Finally, ABC Family’s The Fosters won for youth programming, and James Burrows took home the Career Achievement Award.
All in all, HBO came out on top with the most awards of any network.
