Also known as the prequel to Psycho, a 1960 psychological thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock (which, in turn, is based on Robert Bloch's novel), Bates Motel centers on a mother and her son who decide to live in a coastal Oregon town to begin a new life. Since Norma's husband died, and Norman Bates, her son, suffers from a mental illness, Norma Bates has to do everything she can in order to protect her son from himself and from the people around him. Norma Bates is portrayed by Vera Farmiga, while Norman Bates is portrayed by Freddie Highmore. The acting performances of both main stars have been praised by critics. In fact, Vera Farmiga received the Favorite Cable TV Actress award, while Freddie Highmore took home the Favorite Cable TV Actor award during the People's Choice Awards. And if you're wondering if the show itself won an award, well, it has also been recognized as the Favorite Cable TV Drama at People's' Choice Awards.
