FX Leads TCA Awards Nominations

FX topped all cable, broadcast networks and streaming services in TCA Awards nominations, the Television Critics Association said Tuesday (June 19).

FX drew 10 nominations to lead the pack, followed by Netflix, which drew nine nominations, and NBC, which earned eight nods. BBC America, HBO, PBS/PBS Kids, Hulu, Amazon, CBS/CBS All Access, Starz, Showtime and Disney Channel/Disney Junior all received multiple nominations.

The TCA Awards celebrate the top series, producers and performances of the 2017-18 season as selected by the media organization’s membership of more than 200 professional television critics and journalists from the United States and Canada.

BBC America’s freshman series Killing Eve was the most nominated show, with five nods, followed by the final season of FX’s The Americans, which drew four nominations. FX’s Atlanta, NBC's The Good Place, Hulu’s TheHandmaid’s Tale, HBO’s Barry and Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel all garnered three nominations each, according to the TCA.

"The success of shows like Killing Eve and The Americans and Barry all underline what a killer year this was for TV," said Daniel Fienberg, TCA president and TV critic for The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. "It's an exciting time for television, and the TCA Awards nominations show how much great programming there is and how it can be found anywhere and for every audience.”

Comedian Robin Thede, host of BET’s late night series The Rundown With Robin Thede, will host the 34th annual TCA Awards ceremony, which will take place Aug. 4 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
