“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston will host the 2012 Television Critics Association Awards ceremony next month.
This will be his first time as host. Cranston is a previous TCA award winner for Individual Achievement in Drama and is nominated again in that category this year.
“Bryan is the perfect host for the TCA’s annual awards show,” TCA President Candace Havens said in a statement. “As professional television journalists we’ve recognized his performances through the years as both a comedic and dramatic star. In fact, we honored his work in 2009 with a TCA Award for his role on Breaking Bad. But, as TV fans we’ve laughed along with some of his hilarious characters like Hal in Malcolm in the Middle and Dr. Tim Whatley on Seinfeld. We’re all thrilled that he will headline our awards this year.”
The 28th Annual TCA Awards will be handed out at the invitation-only ceremony held Saturday, July 28 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
