The Television Critics Association have announced their nominees for the 35th Annual TCA Awards, and the competition is pretty stiff. Per a recent press release, “TCA nominees compete for accolades across different categories honoring outstanding achievements in news and information, youth, reality, drama, comedy, miniseries, and sketch/variety shows” from the 2018-2019 season. FX’s Pose and Netflix’s Russian Doll (both A.V. Club favorites) lead all other programs with four nominations each. HBO garnered a total of 15 nominations, edging Netflix out by just one nod. Showtime, BBC, Pop TV, Amazon, and many others were also recognized in a nominee slate that covers the gamut.

Netflix notably dominated the Outstanding Achievement In Reality category with Nailed It!, Queer Eye, Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, and Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat occupying four of the six slots. Series stand-outs Billy Porter (Pose) and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) will compete in a stacked Individual Achievement In Drama category while 2014 winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ final Veep performance will go up against a group of comedic heavy hitters, including Nathasha Lyonne for Russian Doll and Catherine O’Hara for her resplendent turn in Schitt’s Creek. Will the Emmy Awards be nearly this interesting?
