2018 Television Critics Association Award Nominations: Killing Eve, Atlanta, & More

advertising

The Television Critics Association has announced the list of nominations for the 2018 TCA Awards, which will be presented in August. Unsurprisingly, the list includes plenty of familiar faces, like last year’s winners, Atlanta and The Handmaid’s Tale, as well as their respective stars, Donald Glover and Elisabeth Moss. This year, though, there are plenty of new faces, too, including HBO’s Barry, BBC America’s Killing Eve, Netflix’s Mindhunter, and Starz’ Counterpart. And, of course, for the last time ever, FX’s The Americans finds itself nominated as a series, as well as for the performances of Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys. 

This year, the ceremony will be hosted by Robin Thede, host of BET’s The Rundown With Robin Thede. In addition to awarding outstanding achievements in comedy, drama, miniseries, and reality programming, this year will also be the first time an award is handed out in a brand new category: the best in sketch/variety shows.

Daniel Fienberg, TCA President and TV critic for THR offered this statement on the awards:

"The success of shows like Killing Eve and The Americans and Barry all underline what a killer year this was for TV. My sincerest apologies for that pun. 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. We've recognized shows from broadcast, cable, premium cable, streaming and PBS, series aimed for the youngest of children, the most mature of adults and for viewing by the entire family. From sexy assassins to brooding spies to babies who are Muppets, I’m excited to see which series will rise to the top when we gather together on August 4."
