The gritty show ended its seven-season run in November, but it hasn't been forgotten by top television critics -- with 11 nominations.
The Shield will take on Lost, Mad Men, Saturday Night Live and Battlestar Galactica for Program of the Year, while it will also fight for the Heritage Award alongside Star Trek, ER, M*A*S*H and Saturday Night Live -- and co-star Walton Goggins will be recognized for Individual Achievement in a Drama.
The awards will be handed out in Pasadena, California, on Aug. 1.
