The Craigy Awards – Celebrating the best of Television in 2020 (Part 1)

Well this has been some year….

While the world has been struggling to cope with the ongoing COVID pandemic, television has really seized the initiative in the battle for screen dominance over film.

2020 saw us say goodbye to some long-running shows like Homeland, Modern Family and Schitt’s Creek while also continuing to follow the adventures of Baby Yoda (I mean Grogu!), the Byrdes, Villanelle, Sterling Archer, Kim Wexler, Vinnie O’Neil, and of course, the Royal family.

With all said and done, it is now my pleasure to reveal the first group of winners for the 2020 Craigy TV awards.

Hold on to your hats folks!
