TCA Awards 2015 - Complete List of Winners

Fox freshman hit Empire, snubbed in Emmy nominations by the TV Academy, was named Program of the Year at the TCA Summer Press Tour’s annual trophy-dispensing ceremony. And AMC’s new Better Call Saul, a spinoff of critics’ darling Breaking Bad, was named Outstanding New Program of the Year. Leave it to critics to split hairs to honor two shows that both happen to be new.

John Oliver’s new HBO series Last Week Tonight was named the year’s Outstanding News & Information program. HBO also picked up the win for Outstanding Achievement in Movies, Miniseries and Specials for its controversial crime documentary The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst.

But Amy Schumer may be the night’s biggest winner, nabbing the win for Individual Achievement in Comedy, while her Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer was crowned Outstanding Achievement in Comedy.

FX’s spy thriller The Americans won for Outstanding Achievement in Drama.

Jon Hamm, still seeking Emmy recognition for his portrayal of ad exec Don Draper, took home his second TCA Award for Individual Achievement in Drama.

Starz’ filmmaking competition series The Chair received the award for Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming. ABC Family’s The Fosters was picked as Outstanding Achievement in Youth Programming for the second consecutive year.

The TCA also gave its Heritage Award to the combined Late Show/Late Night with David Letterman, which wrapped in May after 33 years on NBC and CBS. The group’s Career Achievement Award went to James L. Brooks for his work across five decades, including The Simpsons, Taxi and The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

The results were determined from votes cast by the TCA’s membership, comprised of more than 220 TV critics/journalists from the United States and Canada.
