For those of you who felt that Battlestar Glactica was unfairly passed over during the last four Emmy seasons, never fear. The Television Critics Association has your back. Battlestar Galactica earned the top program of the year honors at the recent TCA Awards.
Variety is reporting that Syfy’s popular series found many friends at Kudofest, held Saturday night at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, who gave its big prize to the show that has had a rabid following with sci-fi fans and critics but never with the TV Academy.
“It certainly feels appropriate that we received the acknowledgment from the people who were champions of this show from its outset,” said Mark Stern, exec VP of original programming at Syfy. “Critics really adopted this show early on and, in a weird way, this feels like a conclusion to the process.”
Battlestar Gallactica ended its run on Syfy in March. The prequel Caprica, which takes place 58 years prior to Battlestar, will launch on Jan. 22.
