Though the Primetime Emmy Awards are the TV honors that everyone’s familiar with, when it comes to clout, the Television Critics Association Awards take the cake.  Voted on by over 200 professional journalists, the TCA Awards honor the very best in television regardless of which networks can afford the most expensive campaigns, and so the list of 2014 winners comes with a considerable degree of weight.  Breaking Bad took the “Program of the Year” title for the second year in a row, while the Outstanding Achievement in Drama award went to CBS’ critical favorite The Good Wife.  The Best Comedy award resulted in a tie between the blissfully explicit Veep and FX’s wholly unique Louie, while True Detective won both Best Miniseries and Individual Achievement in a Drama for Matthew McConaughey.  As for Best New Program, that honor went to Netflix’s swell Orange Is the New Black.
