‘Atlanta,’ ‘This Is Us,’ ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Lead TCA Awards Nominations

Atlanta,” “This Is Us,” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” each netted four nominations for the 2017 Television Critics Association (TCA) Awards, the media organization announced Monday.

The TCA Awards recognize outstanding television programming in the 2016-2017 season, honoring actors, producers and programs in a variety of categories, including news and information, youth, reality, drama and comedy.

For the second consecutive year, HBO is in the lead with 12 nominations; FX has 11; Netflix has 10; NBC has seven; Hulu has four; ABC and PBS have three; Amazon, Disney and Showtime each have two; and A&E, AMC, BBC America, CBS, CNN, ESPN, and TBS finish with one.

“This was truly a landmark season for diversity in television, and the TCA nominations reflect this. Our members have chosen a variety of series that celebrate and represent a wide spectrum of performances,” said TCA President Amber Dowling. “With so many great programs—both new and returning—it was a real challenge for our members to whittle these nominees down. We’re excited to see which programs and performers make the cut as voting now gets underway to determine the TV standouts of the 2016-17 season.”

The winners will be announced at the invitation-only presentation on Saturday, August 5, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
