Forced to choose between Carrie Coon’s twin performances on The Leftovers and Fargo, the Television Critics Association has decided, porque no los dos? Coon earned a nomination for Individual Achievement in Drama for her work on both FX and HBO series, alongside heavy hitters like Nicole Kidman, Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon, and Elisabeth Moss. (Don’t expect this to happen at the Emmys, which differentiate between limited series like Fargo and dramas like The Leftovers.) Elsewhere in the TCA’s nominations, Atlanta earned recognition for creator and star Donald Glover as well as for comedy, new program, and program of the year, while Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and This Is Us also tied it for the most nominations. Read the full list of TCA Awards nominations below, and marvel at how they were able to watch this many TV shows in the first place.
