Tonight the Television Critics Association held its 28th Awards presentation to honor the best of the best in the 2011-2012 TV season. And our favorite fantasy epic, Game of Thrones, came out victorious with the award for Program of the Year. This makes us as happy as finding a litter of direwolf pups.
