Amazon follows with five nominations while CBS and PBS each have four; NBC and Showtime have three; and BBC America and Pop TV have two. AMC, Comedy Central, Disney Jr., Lifetime, MSNBC, Starz, and TBS each has one.

The TCA Awards honor the best series, creators and stars of the 2018-2019 season for outstanding achievements in news and information, youth, reality, drama, comedy, miniseries, and sketch/variety shows. Winners will be announced at the invitation-only presentation on Saturday, August 3 at the Beverly Hilton. Comedy duo and fellow TCA Awards nominees Desus & Mero will host.

“From departing juggernauts that changed the TV game to new shows that test the boundaries of what the medium can do and be, this has been a landmark season for television across all networks and platforms,” said Daniel Fienberg, TCA President and The Hollywood Reporter Chief TV Critic. “This strong nomination roster represents a diverse blend of talented performers, many of whom are also creators, and groundbreaking content that made us laugh, cry and gasp. Every category is bursting with hard choices, but we couldn’t ask for a better problem to have as we gather together to honor yet another terrific television season and celebrate 35 years of the TCA Awards.”
