Yet it’s the inclusion of HBO’s True Detective that’s the major headline-making presence here. Everybody expects the acclaimed, noir-soaked drama series to swamp awards season, and these nominations are the first indication the show could do just that. True Detective is nominated for outstanding actor (Matthew McConaughey), miniseries (though the show submitted in the drama category for the Emmys), outstanding new program, and the TCA Awards’ top category, »

A glut of great TV shows makes it hard to recognize every show worth of it, but the members of the Television Critics Association did our best in picking the nominees for this year's TCA Awards. So "Breaking Bad" got three nominations, and will have to tussle with "True Detective" in two of those categories (Bryan Cranston vs. Matthew McConaughey for Individual Achievement in Drama, and for Program of the Year), but "Mad Men" didn't get any nominations this time out.(*) Great new shows like "True Detective," "Orange Is the New Black" and "Fargo" got multiple bits of recognition, though there was at times category confusion. the movies/minis category, for instance, includes "True Detective," "Fargo" and "American Horror Story: Coven," all of which are telling season-long stories but will likely continue with new stories and characters next year, but also "Broadchurch" and "The Returned," which are producing sequel seasons »
