If the Television Academy members need any inspiration on what actors and shows to recognize as voting begins, they can look to the 2022 TCA Awards nominations for inspiration.

On Thursday, the Television Critics Association, an organization made up of over 200 professional journalists covering TV, announced the nominees for their 38th Annual Awards honoring outstanding creators, series, and stars from the 2021-2022 TV season. The categories spotlight programming available on broadcast, cable and streaming outlets, that are from a wide array of genres.

Leading the pack in terms of series is freshman ABC comedy “Abbott Elementary” with five nominations, including Program Of The Year, Outstanding New Program, Outstanding Achievement In Comedy, and a pair of Individual Achievement In Comedy nods for series creator, producer, writer, and star Quinta Brunson, and breakout Janelle James.

In fact, the Program of the Year category is dominated by new shows this year, with “Severance,” “Squid Game,” “The White Lotus,” and “Yellowjackets” being nominated as well, next to returning favorites “Better Call Saul,” “Hacks,” and “Succession.”

Interestingly enough, last year’s Program of the Year “Ted Lasso” is not in the running for that specific award, but will still defend its title in the Outstanding Achievement in Comedy category.

Worth noting that women still dominate the acting categories as well, which are both non-gendered and do not delineate between lead and supporting, but by a smaller margin of 10 out of 18 (last year they were 10 out of 13).

On the network level, HBO and HBO Max received a combined 21 nominations (12 for the former and nine for the latter), with the next in line being Netflix with 13 nominations and Apple TV+ with 10.

“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.”

TCA Award winners will be announced at the invitation-only presentation on Saturday, August 6, at The Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, CA, marking the first time that the ceremony will be held in-person since 2019.
