BBC America’s freshman thriller Killing Eve topped all shows, scoring five nominations for the 2018 Television Critics Association (TCA) Awards. Next up with four noms was The Americans (FX) followed by five series with 3 nods apiece--Atlanta (FX), The Good Place (NBC), The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu), Barry (HBO) and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon). Scoring two nominations each were This Is Us (NBC), GLOW (Netflix) and The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (FX).

FX leads all networks this year with 10 nominations, followed closely by Netflix, which has nine nods to its credit; and NBC, which has seven. BBC America and HBO have both earned six nominations; PBS/PBS Kids has four; Hulu, Amazon, and CBS/CBS All Access have three; Starz, Showtime, and Disney Channel/Disney Junior have two; and TBS, VH1, Lifetime, MSNBC, CNN, and The CW round out the lineup with one each.

The 34th annual TCA Awards celebrate the top series, producers, and performances of the 2017-2018 season, as selected by the media organization’s membership of over 200 professional television critics and journalists from the United States and Canada.

In addition to longstanding categories honoring outstanding achievement in news and information, youth, reality, drama, comedy, and miniseries, the 2018 ceremony will introduce a new category, the best in sketch/variety shows. Winners will be announced at the invitation-only presentation on Saturday, August 4, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Spanning a wide variety of networks and programs, the 2018 TCA Awards nominees reflect a diverse television landscape offering complex characters, thought-provoking stories, in-depth fact-based profiles, biting wit and satire, and much more. The Program Of The Year category highlights some truly groundbreaking series that have left an indelible mark on entertainment, taking their place among the greats as modern television icons. The formidable title bout includes last year’s winner, The Handmaid’s Tale, based on Margaret Atwood’s dystopian classic; Soviet spy thriller The Americans; devilishly funny afterlife farce The Good Place; Donald Glover’s genre-defying Atlanta; assassin caper Killing Eve; and the beloved family tearjerker This Is Us, all battling to claim the honor of one of the TCA’s most coveted awards.
