TCA Awards 2022 nominations: full list

Freshman series “Abbott Elementary” is leading the pack. On Thursday, the Television Critics Association announced the nominees for the organization’s 38th Annual TCA Awards, focusing on multi-genre TV content from the 2021-2022 TV season.

The TCA is made up of more than 200 professional journalists who cover television.

The 13 categories honor drama, comedy, miniseries, youth, news and information, reality variety, and skits or talk shows. Winners will be revealed at the August 6 presentation at the Langham Huntington Hotel. This year’s awards show in Pasadena, California will be the first in-person ceremony since 2019.

This year, ABC’s “Abbott Elementary,” created by star Quinta Brunson, leads with five nominations. AMC’s “Better Call Saul”, Apple TV+’s “Severance” and Showtime’s “Yellowjackets” follow with four nods each, while HBO Max’s “Hacks”, Hulu’s “Only Murders In The Building”, Netflix’s “Squid Game” and HBO’s “Succession” won three each.

The nominees for Show of the Year, the top TCA award, span multiple networks and streaming services, including ABC, Showtime, Netflix, HBO, HBO Max, AMC and Apple TV+.

Career Achievement and Heritage Award winners will be announced later this summer.
