TCA 2017: Handmaid’s Tale, This Is Us, Atlanta Win Top Awards from TV Critics

The winners of the 2017  TCA Awards were announced tonight in Los Angeles. Freshmen shows like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “This Is Us,” and ”Atlanta” took top honors.

The Handmaid’s Tale

Hulu’s dystopian drama “The Handmaid’s Tale” won both the dramatic achievement trophy as well as the top “Program of the Year” honor. while NBC’s family drama “This Is Us” took the prize for new program. On the comedy side, FX’s “Atlanta” took both the comedic achievement trophy and individual achievement in comedy for its star (and creator) Donald Glover.

Coon earned the top honor in dramatic acting, making TCA history for winning for dual performances this year (“The Leftovers” and “Fargo”).

The Television Critics Association., whose 220-plus members vote to choose these winners, does not separate male and female actors into two categories — nor does it separate drama performers from those in limited series or TV movies.

Carrie Coon

Coon not only beat out “Big Little Lies” star Nicole Kidman, “The Crown’s” Claire Foy and “The Handmaid’s Tale’s” Elisabeth Moss, but also “Feud’s” Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon and “This Is Us’s” Sterling K. Brown.
