'The Americans,' 'Breaking Bad' lead TCA Awards noms

Posted on

THE AMERICANS
Craig Blankenhorn/FX

Well done, “Elizabeth” and “Phillip” — you’ve played the part of average American citizens well enough to help your FX drama snag three Television Critics Association Awards nominations.

You might want to call the KGB for reinforcements, though — The Americans will face stiff competition from the likes of Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and The Walking Dead, all of which are also up for Program of the Year. AMC’s drug drama, which begins its final run of episodes Aug. 11, also won three nominations overall — in the same three categories as The Americans.

This year’s TCA Awards will be presented Aug. 3, during the summer’s TCA press tour. A full list of nominees is below.
