'Unbelievable,' 'The Mandalorian' Among TCA Awards Nominees

The Television Critics Association has announced the 2020 nominations for the 36TH annual TCA Awards.

Watchmen and Unbelievable are leading the nominations both with four nominations. Better Call Saul, Mrs. America, and Schitt’s Creek trail behind with three nominations. Disney+’s hit Star Wars series The Mandalorian also received a nomination for Outstanding New Program.

“This was an incredible year for television, offering a variety of groundbreaking new series with fresh perspectives and renewed vigor for some veteran favorites,” said Sarah Rodman, TCA President and executive editor at Entertainment Weekly. “Although we sadly will not have the opportunity to gather to honor these creative achievements in person, we look forward to sharing our selections for the season’s top programs when the winners are unveiled later this summer.” 

The Television Critics Association (TCA) represents more than 200 professional journalists who cover television for publications across the United States and Canada. Nominations for Career Achievement and Heritage Award winners will be announced later this summer with the winners.
