     August 6, 2017

Last night, Kristen Chenowith hosted the 33rd annual TCA Awards, nominated and voted on by the TV Critics Association. As a member, I was especially proud of our list of nominees this year, and how they highlighted such a diverse group of series and actors. The awards aren’t televised, though, which means the world was deprived of a surprise duet between Chenowith and This Is UsSterling K. Brown which was delightful.

As for the winners though, you can find that full list below. But it’s worth noting that Carrie Coon made awards history by being nominated in the same category for two series, and won (of course, as is only right). Atlanta also took home two awards (for Outstanding Comedy, which I was fortunate enough to present as a hometown Atlantan), and Individual Achievement in Comedy for Donald Glover (who was absent, being at the moment in a galaxy far, far away). The Handmaid’s Tale also won two major awards, and ABC’s great new comedy Speechless won for best youth / family program.

Check out the full list, with the winners marked in red.
