Golden Coffee Cup Awards - Television - 2019-2020

Sorry, this category does not go to the House of Representatives to break the tie. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all of our members and volunteers who voted for the best shows and performances about politics and government during the 2019-2020 television season.

Watchmen earned two awards, Best Miniseries or Movie for Television about Politics and Government and split Best Comedy, Drama, Miniseries, or Movie for Television about Fantastic and Futuristic Politics and Government with The Mandalorian. The Handmaid's Tale won Best Drama Series about Politics and Government. Schitt's Creek defeated last year's winner Saturday Night Live for Best Comedy Series about Politics and Government. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver returned as Best Talk Show. Frontline won the initial award for Best Documentary, Nonfiction, or Reality Series about Politics and Government. Kiefer Sutherland as Tom Kirkman on Designated Survivor and Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live will share the office of Best Television President for 2019-2020 Season, replacing Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer on Veep, whose term expired. 

With the 2019-2020 television season out of the way, the members and volunteers of Coffee Party USA will move on to the best political movies of the 2020 awards season.
