‘Abbott Elementary’ Leads TV Critics Awards Nominations – The Hollywood Reporter

0 7

As it turns out, broadcast television isn’t dead after all.

ABC’s breakout freshman comedy Abbott Elementary leads all series nominations at the annual Television Critics Association’s awards. The comedy created by and starring Quinta Brunson scored five nominations, topping AMC’s Better Call Saul, Apple’s Severance and Showtime’s Yellowjackets — each of which earned four mentions. HBO Max’s Hacks, Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building, Netflix’s Squid Game and HBO’s Succession scored three each.

Among all platforms, HBO (12) and HBO Max (nine) combined to lead the pack with 21. Netflix came in second with 13, followed by Apple with 10.

The TCA’s program of the year category is dominated by first-year shows and features Abbott Elementary, Severance, Squid Game, The White Lotus and Yellowjackets competing for the coveted prize alongside Better Call Saul, Succession and Hacks.

Abbott Elementary also collected individual nominations for Brunson and co-star Janelle James while also competing for achievement in comedy and new program.

The comedy category also features 2017 winner Atlanta, Barry, Ghosts, Hacks, Only Murders in the Building, Reservation Dogs and last year’s victor, Ted Lasso. The drama series category includes Better Call Saul (the 2019 winner), The Good Fight, Pachinko, Severance, Squid Game, Succession (last year’s winner), This Is Us and Yellowjackets.

“The 2022 TCA Awards are an exciting landmark for the organization and its members, as it will be the first time in three years that we are finally able to celebrate together in person,” said Melanie McFarland, TCA president and TV critic for Salon. “It’s fitting, then, that we should ring in this long-awaited occasion with one of the most competitive, talented, and star-heavy nominee rosters in recent memory. This lineup is a testament to how diverse and innovative the modern television landscape has become. We cannot wait to see who will rise above the rest when the winners are revealed at the 38th annual TCA Awards on Aug. 6.”

The nominations are voted on by the 200-plus-member group of television critics and journalists from the U.S. and Canada. The non-televised ceremony will take place at the Langham Huntington Hotel, where TCA will return to in-person panels for the first time since before the pandemic.
