The nominations for the 2016 Television Critics Association Awards are out, and it turns out that professional critics have pretty good taste in TV. Mr. Robot and The People v. O.J. Simpson lead the pack with four nods a piece, while Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Master of None, The Americans, and UnREAL all garnered a respectable three nominations. This year's ceremony will take place on August 6. It'll be one of the few awards shows where Making a Murderer gets to go up against The Great British Baking Show.
