The critics love “The Office,” “My Name Is Earl,” “The Sopranos” and “24.” The two NBC comedies and the two drama series earned three nominations apiece Wednesday for the 22nd annual Television Critics Assn. Awards.
“The Office” earned TCA Award bids for program of the year, comedy series and an individual achievement in comedy for star Steve Carell. “Earl” snared noms for comedy series, new program of the year and individual achievement in comedy for star Jason Lee.
HBO’s “Sopranos” and Fox’s “24” earned program of the year and drama series bids. “Sopranos” star James Gandolfini was recognized for individual achievement in drama, as was “24’s” Kiefer Sutherland.
Rounding out the program of the year category for the awards covering the 2005-06 season are ABC’s medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy” and last year’s best drama series Emmy winner “Lost.” MORE
