The Television Critics’ Association (of which I’m a member) gave out its 2010 awards in Los Angeles Saturday, and it was a big night for new program Glee. (It was a somewhat less big, but still non-shabby, night for Modern Family, Lost and Breaking Bad, among others.)

I wasn’t at the awards this year, but I did vote, and if you read me much, you probably have an idea where I did and didn’t agree with my colleagues. I’m glad Jane Lynch picked up a trophy for Glee, and am glad in general that that show got recognized, though I think three awards was overdoing it. And I’m pretty sure I cast my two allotted comedy votes for Parks and Recreation and Party Down over Modern Family.

But TCA is a democracy, and I’m glad to see James Garner pick up a Career Achievement Award. Here is the full list of nominees if you’re curious; the winners, after the jump:
