'Breaking Bad' and 'True Detective' Among Winners at 2014 TCA Awards


Other winners at the Television Critics Association Awards include 'Veep', 'Orange Is the New Black', 'The Good Wife', and 'Louie'.

The 30th annual Television Critics Association (TCA) Awards announced winners Saturday night, July 19 at the Beverly Hilton hosted by Terry Crews ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine"). AMC's "Breaking Bad" and HBO's "True Detective" were among the winners at the event.

"Breaking Bad" won the coveted Program of the Year. "It's a little sad saying goodbye. This is the last time we'll be up here," main star Bryan Cranston said after accepting the kudo, before jokingly adding, "Unless you create the category of newly departed show."

"True Detective" grabbed two awards, Outstanding Achievement in Movies, Miniseries and Specials and Individual Achievement in Drama for main actor Matthew McConaughey. HBO added two wins, thanks to "Veep" which got Outstanding Achievement in Comedy. Main actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus also earned Individual Achievement in Comedy.

That's why many thanked HBO at the event. Cranston even said, "Everyone's thanking HBO, so thank you, HBO." He added, "Early on, you turned us down. That's OK, I'll be working for you soon," referring to the adaptation of his hit Broadway play, "All the Way", which was just picked up by HBO Films.

Additionally, the executive producer of FX's "Louie" gave a shout-out to HBO in his acceptance speech after the show tied with "Veep" as the winner of Outstanding Achievement in Comedy. He thanked the network for canceling "Lucky Louie." "Otherwise, we wouldn't be here," so he said.

Special honorees were "Saturday Night Live" (Heritage Award) and legendary writer/producer James Burrows (Career Achievement Award). "SNL" head writer Colin Jost applauded Lorne Michaels, "Lorne's never afraid to lose great performers and replace them with completely untested performers like myself." Burrows joked, "I know you guys write stuff I don't always agree with, but I agree with this."
