TCA Award winners leaked: ‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Orange Is the New Black’

Oops, it looks like Variety accidentally leaked the winners of the Television Critics Association Awards earlier today, then pulled the article off the web. However, trusty Gold Derby poster “SxECanadianFanSxE” spotted the article, grabbed the TCA info and relayed it to our editors a few hours prior to the awards gala being held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Thus, we’re publishing the news before it’s officially announced.

This marks the second year in a row that “Breaking Bad” won Program of the Year, but that came as a bit of a surprise to Gold Derby users, who predicted “True Detective” would prevail. Instead, they picked “Breaking Bad” to win Best Drama Series, but “The Good Wife” pulled off an upset in that race.

  1. It’s a good thing the TCAs have so many categories that mean essentially the same thing so that they can find a way to honor Breaking Bad, True Detective AND The Good Wife as Best Series. And hey, wasn’t there a tie for Best Comedy Series last year too?
