Limited series “Watchmen” (from HBO) and “Unbelievable” (from Netflix) have picked up the most Television Critics Assn. Awards nominations for 2020.

Both series snagged four noms each, including in the outstanding achievement in movie or miniseries and program of the year categories. In addition, “Watchmen” picked up a new program nom, as well as one in individual achievement in drama for Regina King, while both Kaitlyn Dever and Merritt Wever of “Unbelievable” also saw love in that performer category.

AMC’s “Better Call Saul,” FX on Hulu’s “Mrs. America,” Pop TV’s “Schitt’s Creek” and HBO’s “Succession” came in closely behind with three nominations each, followed by FX’s “Better Things,” Netflix’s “Dead To Me,” Hulu’s “The Great” and HBO’s “Insecure,” each with two noms each.

When it comes to how the networks fared, HBO took the top spot for the second consecutive year, this time picking up 16 overall nominations. It was aided not only by the above series but also “A Black Lady Sketch Show,”  “Euphoria” and “I Know This Much Is True,” which picked up freshman noms. Netflix followed with 10, aided by the above, as well as kids’ programming “Carmen Sandiego” and the YA hit “Never Have I Ever.” FX and FX on Hulu picked up seven, Hulu and PBS/PBS Kids both earned six, and NBC picked up five. Filling out the rest of the ballot were AMC and Pop with three each; CBS/CBS All Access and Disney Plus with two, and ABC, Apple TV Plus, Bravo, Comedy Central, ESPN, MSNBC and TBS, each with one.

The 36th Annual TCA Awards normally would have had an in-person ceremony this summer, coinciding with the bi-annual TCA press tour. The coronavirus pandemic tabled live event plans, with winners being announced later this summer. The Career Achievement and Heritage Award winners will also be announced along later this summer.

The TCA Awards nominees are selected by the roster of more than 200 professional television critics and journalists from the United States and Canada. Voting took place virtually last month.
