The Television Critics Association Announces 2019 TCA Award Nominations

FX's 'Pose' and Netflix 'Russian Doll' Lead With 4 Nominations Each; HBO Most Nominated Network

The Television Critics Association (TCA) has announced the nominees for the organization’s 35TH Annual TCA Awards. Comedy duo Desus & Mero, stars of the TCA-nominated Showtime series of the same name, will host the live ceremony on Saturday, August 3rd at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. The 2019 TCA Awards, a celebration of all things television, honors the best series, creators, and stars of the 2018-2019 season. More than 220 professional television critics and journalists from the United States and Canada voted.

HBO leads with 15 nominations this year, inching past Netflix which scored 14. FX ranks third with eight nods, followed by Amazon (5), CBS and PBS (4 each), NBC and Showtime (3 each), and BBC America and Pop (2 each). Rounding out the lot are AMC, Comedy Central, Disney Jr., Lifetime, MSNBC, Starz, and TBS, each with one.

“From departing juggernauts that changed the TV game to new shows that test the boundaries of what the medium can do and be, this has been a landmark season for television across all networks and platforms,” said Daniel Fienberg, TCA President and The Hollywood Reporter Chief TV Critic. “This strong nomination roster represents a diverse blend of talented performers, many of whom are also creators, and groundbreaking content that made us laugh, cry and gasp. Every category is bursting with hard choices, but we couldn’t ask for a better problem to have as we gather together to honor yet another terrific television season and celebrate 35 years of the TCA Awards.”

The 35TH Annual TCA Awards coincide with the 2019 Summer TCA Press Tour, running from Tuesday, July 23 through Thursday, August 8.
