The Amazon show won in all three categories in which it was nominated, the other two being Outstanding Achievement in Comedy and Programme of the Year. HBO secured more wins as its controversial Michael Jackson expose Leaving Neverland that took home the award in the category of Outstanding Achievement in News and Information. John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight (HBO) won the award Outstanding Achievement in Sketch/Variety Show second consecutive time and the Heritage Award was bagged by American Western Deadwood, which aired on the network from 2004 to 2006. “Heartfelt thanks for walking with me on my journey. HBO’s critically-acclaimed limited series Chernobyl was named Outstanding Achievement in Movie Or Miniseries, while Better Call Saul, the beloved spin-off of AMC’s Breaking Bad, took home the prize for Outstanding Achievement in Drama. Here’s hoping I have a few more stories left to tell,” he said. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michelle Williams held up the end in terms of Individual Achievement in Drama for her role in FX limited series Fosse/Verdon. “The dirty secret is how deeply we care what the critics think,” Milch quipped. “A self-lacerating examination of the intersection of love and faith, explorations of private trauma both scripted and unscripted, tales of personal transformation both uplifting and tragic, period explorations of creativity and avoidable tragedy, this year’s TCA Awards winners are united in how different and how ambitious they are.

“… There’s no single formula for excellence, as our honourees include reputation restoring biopics, female-driven half-hours, the rare spin-off to equal its illustrious predecessor and a piece of difficult-to-watch history that couldn’t feel more vital and relevant, making for a special TCA Awards night,” Flenberg said. The Netflix show, starring and co-created by Natasha Lyonne, had received four nominations. Popular Photos
