Hit crime drama True Detective will lead the way at the 2014 Television Critics Association (Tca) Awards after landing four nominations, including Program of the Year.

The first season of the show, which starred Matthew MCConaughey and Woody Harrelson as troubled cops trying to solve a series of cult-related murders, will face tough competition for the top prize from 2013 winner Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife and Orange Is the New Black.

True Detective also scored nods for Outstanding New Program and Outstanding Achievement in Movies, Miniseries and Specials, facing off in both categories with Billy Bob Thornton's new series Fargo, while Oscar winner MCConaughey was recognised for Individual Achievement in Drama. He will compete against Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), Matthew Rhys (The Americans) and Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black).

The nominees for Individual Achievement in Comedy include Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) and Louis C.K. (Louie), and the Outstanding Achievement in Comedy category will be a battle between The Big Bang Theory, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Louie, The Mindy Project and Veep.

Meanwhile, actress Valerie Harper, Star Trek icon William Shatner and retired late night U.S. Tv host Jay Leno will receive Career Achievement awards when the ceremony takes place in California on 19 July (14).

The Tca Awards honour excellence in U.S. television.
