The nominations are in for this year’s Television Critics Association Awards, and FX and Netflix lead all studios in the number of cumulative nods, with ten and nine, respectively. Familiar standouts like Atlanta, The Americans, The Good Place, and Better Things will once again compete for honors voted on by more than 200 TV critics from across the U.S. and Canada, and those shows are joined by newcomers like Barry, GLOW, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The series with the most nominations is also a freshman program, but it doesn’t live at FX or Netflix. That distinction goes to BBC America’s queer spy drama Killing Eve, which leads all shows with five nominations, followed closely behind by The Americans with four. Together, those programs also account for four of the six nominees in the Individual Achievement in Drama category.
