    I love Speechless but why is it in youth programming? Is that a network decision?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Networks have no say. Anything is eligible for Youth Program (e.g. in past years, Degrassi, Kyle XY, The Fosters and Switched at Birth have won.)

    • GregJ. says:

      I guess I can see because the focus is JJ and how is condition affects their lives. Although, that changed as the season progressed on somewhat. I’m just happy it’s recognized, it’s a great show touching on something rarely discussed.

  2. Nick says:

    Where is Westworld ?

  3. Brian says:

    It always bugs me when they do something like The Leftovers gets nominated for overall program of the year yet doesn’t also get nominated for best drama.

    • Jec says:

      Right?! How on earth wasn’t it nominated? I liked This is Us but in no way does it deserve that spot over the masterpiece that is the leftovers.

    • Lex says:

      Schmaltzy This Is Us has no business being in the Best Drama category when The Leftovers isn’t there. You want to fight me on this? Come at me bro.

  4. Ingmar says:

    Yay for Gilmore Girls and The Good Place love.

  5. KayCeeCee says:

    This is Us all the way!

  6. Joey Padron says:

    Happy This Is Us, Atlanta, and The Handmaid’s Tale got most nominations!

  7. Jermey says:

    Happy to see Gilmore Girls got nominated. Too bad none of cast got a nomination as well, but that was expected. I guess.

  8. So glad to see Carrie Coon on here! Hopefully there will be an Emmy nom too!

    • Lex says:

      I don’t think there’s been a better performance this year than Carrie on The Leftovers. When someone is able to convince you about alternate realities using zero science but only the emotional resonance of her experience being there, you know something amazing has happened.

  9. dan says:

    The TCA nominations are always interesting especially in the acting categories where they combine men and women together (and no separate category for tv movies or limited series). I’m surprised OITNB didn’t get a nom or two because the critics seemed to like last summer’s Season 4. Nice to see Survivor: Game Changers nominated most likely due to the outing of Zeke as being transgender.

  10. matty says:

    Why did they ignore Orange Is The New Black? Its fourth season was fantastic and nearly universally acclaimed.

  11. guest says:

    I love The Americans but won’t be upset if The Handmaid’s Tale wins something…Brilliant acting!

  12. Julia says:

    How Bates Motel never gets nominated for anything blows my mind!!

  13. Molly says:

    Great to see Fleabag getting some noms! Its so funny and underrated.

    • Paul Hanlin Jr says:

      It’s a drama masquerading as a comedy and it really should be in LIMITED series. It’s only 6 episodes.
