TCA Awards go giddy over 'Glee,' 'Modern Family' and 'Breaking Bad'

June 3, 2010 |  5:14 pm

When the Television Critics Assn. unveiled nominees Thursday, "Modern Family" led with the most (five), followed by "Glee" and "Breaking Bad" (four).

Nice surprises included major notice for rookie series "Sons of Anarchy," "Parks and Recreation," "Party Down" and "The Good Wife." Shocking omissions: recent Emmy sweepers "30 Rock."

As usual, there are lots of inconsistencies and oddities surrounding awards bestowed by quirky TV critics. As our forums poster nicknamed "adamunc" asks, "How can 'Friday Night Lights' be up for Program of the Year but not Drama? That makes no sense." See more forum reax here.

How could 30 Rock not be nominated for ANYTHING? This is just logically flawed! What is "Starz" anyways? Lol

Mod fam would have won, but they blew it with that Brady BUnch hawaii show. why get gimmicky when that's not what got them there. Glee wins.

The beginning of the article states that "Mad Men" was not nominated this year, but yet it is listed under Best Drama.
