Voted on by television critics from across the United States of America, it’s great to see such a wide selection of winners; something summed up by outgoing TCA President, Amber Dowling.
She commented: “This was one of the most diverse seasons in recent memory, offering a wide range of programming that truly had a little something for everyone. It also treated us to some incredible performances and eclectic plotlines that challenged us, moved us, and thrilled us, reinvigorating the television landscape with bold and innovative subjects that we had rarely seen before.”
