"Lights," "Heroes," "Sopranos" Headline TCA Awards

The Primetime Emmy Award nominations may have been all the talk among TV critics last week, but that didn't stop the group from giving out a few honors of their own.

The TCA Awards, presented Saturday night, shared some things in common with the Emmy nominations — lots of love for "The Sopranos," "Heroes" and Alec Baldwin — but the critics also gave top honors to "Friday Night Lights" and Michael C. Hall of "Dexter," both of whom were snubbed in the Emmy voting. "Friday Night Lights" won for Outstanding New Program, while Hall was recognized for Individual Achievement in Drama.

I'm told there were a couple of funny "Sopranos"-related moments — one when David Chase used a cryptic Beatles reference to joke about the finale, another when Alec Baldwin expressed his dismay at "The Sopranos" ending "because now I won't be able to be on the show." To see the complete list of winners,

Thank goodness FNL got some recognition! After not getting anything decent Emmy-wise, this is a relief. Happy about The Office and Heroes, too.
