Shows You Like Were Nominated for TCA Awards

By

Last night, the Television Critics Association released their nominations for the 28th annual TCA awards, which I’m pretty sure is different from the Critics’ Choice Television Awards that were announced early in the week. It’s a similar award but just with some different critics. The structure is a bit different as well (for example: there is only one inter-gender acting category per genre) but the usual suspects got nominated. Community is there – Parks and Amy Poehler are there – Louie and Louis are there. One surprise is that Lena Dunham beat out SO many people to receive one of the five comedy acting nominations. For all she does for that show as a writer and a director, it’s easy to forget how good she is as that character. The full list of comedy related nominees is below. Look out next week for the Association of Choice Television Critics Awards and the Critics’ Television Choices Associations Awards nominees.Individual Achievement in Comedy
