Game of Thrones, Friday Night Lights honored at Television Critics Association Awards
Fresh off of its series finale, Friday Night Lights has snagged a Television Critics Association Award. Read on to see what award they claimed.
The Television Critics Association Awards were held on Saturday night (Aug. 6) and Friday Night Lights walked away with quite an honor for its final season -- Program of the Year.
Who needs tons of past Emmy nods when you can do it big in the final season? Friday Night Lights got a few Emmy nominations this year, but was shunned in the past.
Game of Thrones was also a big winner. The show scooped up an award for Outstanding New Program, which was not surprising considering all the chatter the show has gotten.
The Television Critics Association Awards were held at The Beverly Hilton hotel in part with the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
