LOS ANGELES (June 13, 2010) – The Television Critics Association (TCA), a media organization with more than 200 professional TV critics and journalists from the United States and Canada, today announced nominations for its 2011 TCA Awards.  The 2011 TCA Awards recognize outstanding television programming in the 2010-2011 season, honoring both actors and producers in a variety of categories including news and information, youth, drama and comedy achievements. This year’s 27th annual awards show will include for the first time a category to honor the best TV series in reality programming.

The winners of the 27th Annual TCA Awards will be announced at the invitation-only presentation, Saturday, August 6, 2011, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, as part of the group’s bi-annual industry conference.  “Parks and Recreation’s” Nick Offerman serves as host for the non-televised event and is a nominee in the Individual Achievement in Comedy category along with his fellow “Parks and Recreation” cast member Amy Poehler. Both are joined by Ty Burrell (ABC’s “Modern Family), Louis C.K. (FX’s “Louis”), Danny Pudi (NBC’s “Community”) and Jon Stewart, (Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart”) as nominees in this category.

“The Television Critics Association’s yearly awards are a prestigious event where seasoned professional TV writers offer their choices for the people and shows bringing the best to TV audiences,” said Television Critics Association President Susan Young. “We do not accept submissions. Nominees represent the TCA’s version of the All-Star team and we take great pride in honoring them.”

  23. Ladies suits for work

    Service suits. Women’s responsibility suits will fail your co-workers аnd clients certain they cаn tаke you seriously. On your suits to evidence think about а professionаl аttitude: look for stout, neutrаl colors аnd not many embellishments. If you at worst wаnt inseparable or two lаdies’ suits with a view have a job, opt suits in lightweight wool or а cotton blend so you cаn weаr them fully the yeаr. Be stable to hаve skirt suits in your closet for importаnt meetings or after interviews. You cаn аlso аdd women’s pаnt suits to your wаrdrobe.
