HBO’s “Succession” and FX’s “The Bear” were the top winners at the 39th annual Television Critics Association (TCA) awards. In the past, these awards were presented in a ceremony on the closing weekend of the semi-annual press tour. But due to the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, the winners were announced online instead.
Both “Succession” and “The Bear” were the only series to walk away with multiple awards this year.
“Succession” took home the prestigious Program of the Year award. As well as its 3rd win for Outstanding Achievement In Drama, which it previously won in 2022 and 2020. While “The Bear” nabbed the Outstanding New Program and the Achievement in Comedy awards.
Netflix’s “Beef” got the award for Outstanding Achievement In Movies, Miniseries, Or Specials. Another Netflix series, “ I Think You Should Leave With Tim Robinson,” got Outstanding Achievement In Variety, Talk Or Sketch, for its 2nd year in a row. Rival streamer Disney+ also walked away with two awards, Outstanding Achievement In Family Programming for “Ms. Marvel.” The other is for Outstanding Achievement In Children’s Programming for their series “Bluey.”
Freevee’s new breakout hit “Jury Duty” took home the Outstanding Achievement In Reality Programming award. PBS’s series “The U.S. and The Holocaust” was awarded for Outstanding Achievement In News and Information. A Heritage Award was also given to CBS’s influential “The Carol Burnett Show.”
As for individual awards, Rhea Seehorn won the Individual Achievement In Drama award for the final season of AMC’s “Better Call Saul” (yay!). Natasha Lyonne walked away with the Individual Achievement In Comedy award for Peacock’s “Poker Face” (also yay!). The legendary Mel Brooks was also a Career Achievement Honoree.
“This was a landmark year for television, as we said goodbye to several powerhouse series while welcoming a new generation of shows and stars into this highly competitive landscape,” outgoing TCA President Melanie McFarland said. “Whether established hits or first-year favorites, our honorees exemplify the strength of television and the unique depth that it allows creators to explore. Though we are unable to gather in 2023, we sincerely congratulate each of this season’s winners, and we hope to celebrate in-person in 2024.”
