    Nominees will be announced in late May or early June and winners will be announced in late July or early August. Remember that each of the two hundred members of the Television Critics Association only gets two votes per category in the nominations phase.

    ^ I would love these picks. I’d maybe go with Sarah Paulson for Achievement in Drama though and though I love Gina Rodriquez, I see Rachel Bloom getting in over her and possibly winning.

    Team Kimmy.

    And…Jessica Jones?

    I wonder if Girls’ critical resurgence will be made visible here.

    I considered that, but they did not welcome back Homeland last year and Girls has surprisingly never been nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy before anyway. (They nominated Lena Dunham twice, plus nominated it for Outstanding New Program.)

    The TCA is tricky for many reasons. A quarter of their membership consists of the critics that we always read on Metacritic and their inclusion makes them a more legitimate organization than Critics’ Choice, which is really more television journalists than critics. But we have no idea who make up the other three quarters of TCA and that makes the group’s choices more populist than they should be. The Big Bang Theory gets in year after year to the detriment of actual critical darlings like Enlightened that end up shut out from the nominations even as the most notable critics are hailing it as worthy of winning in multiple TCA categories.

    Oh that’s surprising. I knew Girls S1 was in the T5 in Metacritic’s aggregate of critics’ fave shows so I assumed it had to have been in Comedy or Program then…

    I think ACS is gonna take Program of the Year, unless Game of Thrones has its best season yet and has a red wedding type event, and Fargo will take Best Achievement in Miniseries

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    What about American Idol for the Heritage Award?

    That you can only vote for 2 two things rule is so cool.

    I hope they don’t nominate GoT out of habit after seeing only 5(or 4?) episodes. Same goes to SV and Veep, though both of them were snubbed last year and weirdly the former hasn’t even nominated once-even in New Program category.

    Good point. I wonder if that is why Silicon Valley has fared so poorly here. Maybe it got one of the last three nomination slots at Critics’ Choice and their opinion of it improved over the season. So weird for it to have won there without even a nomination here.

    American Idol would have been a lock for the Heritage Award a few years ago. The West Wing, The Sopranos, The Wire and ER were awarded in consecutive years when they ended. Then 2010 saw a record three ending shows nominated, perhaps splitting the vote for a M*A*S*H win. And the TCA has not really looked back. Late Show last year was the first just-ended show to win the category in six years and the first even to be nominated in five. Plus it was a shared award with Late Night. They snubbed the likes of Friday Night Lights, 30 Rock, The Office, Breaking Bad and Mad Men, so I have doubts about them being nostalgic for a show that went out with a whimper.

    A split between American Crime Story and Fargo could easily happen. They love to spread the wealth.

    I was thinking about this, and an easy swap would be The Grinder for Crazy Ex Girlfriend as far as New Program goes. CEG got the renewal, the Globe, and was in the T20 on Metacritic’s annual aggregate of Best lists.
    Last year Flash AND Jane got in. 4 WB shows and 2 UPN shows got in previously.

    I’m not sure where they’ll put Horace and Pete.

    They put anything even remotely “miniseries” in Miniseries, like the first seasons of Rectify and True Detective and the third season of Downton Abbey.

    I still have a tough time wrapping my head around Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, even after Rachel Bloom won Critics’ Choice. I have never seen the show; it just seems like more of a Globes thing than a critics thing. The Grinder sparked a decent critical outcry when it was cancelled.

    I am curious to see if late-breaking Lady Dynamite gets in on the strength of its reviews or if it is just too under the radar, even for critics. Thirteen reviews on Metacritic and nineteen on Rotten Tomatoes is weak for a new show.

    Two weeks until nominations probably!

    Do you guys really think GOT is getting any nominations at this point? I just don’t see it. Right now I’m going with:

    Program of the Year:

    The Americans
    **The People v. O.J Simpson
    The Leftovers
    Better Call Saul
    Fargo

    *I’m extremely confident in all but BCS. I could see Mr. Robot or maybe even Making A Murderer replacing it.

    Outstanding Achievement in Drama:

    Better Call Saul
    Mr. Robot
    The Leftovers
    **The Americans
    UnREAL

    *UnREAL is a longshot, but I don’t know what else to put here. I really don’t think GOT is getting any nominations. Rectify should be in here, but they haven’t nominated it since S1, and that was in the mini series category. Am I forgetting something? Horace & Pete if they decide to vote for it here.

    Outstanding Achievement in Comedy:

    **Veep
    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    Master of None
    Black-ish
    Transparent

    *Silicon Valley could replace Kimmy

    Individual Achievement in Drama:

    **Sarah Paulson
    Justin Theroux
    Kirsten Dunst
    Rami Malek
    Bob Odenkirk

    *Bryan Cranston is getting raves for All the Way, so I could see him getting in here. Maybe one of the Horace & Pete guys?

    Individual Achievement in Comedy:

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus
    Anthony Anderson
    Aziz Ansari
    **Rachel Bloom
    Ellie Kemper

    *I think Tambor is out. Gina Rodriguez might replace Kemper.

    Outstanding Achievement in Miniseries, Movies, and Specials:

    The People v. O.J. Simpson
    **Fargo
    American Crime
    Show Me A Hero
    Horace & Pete

    *Horace & Pete could easily miss here. Who knows how many members actually saw it, or if they’ll even vote for it in this category . All the Way is the most likely candidate to replace it.

    Outstanding New Program:

    UnREAL
    **Mr. Robot
    Jessica Jones
    Master of None
    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

    *The Grinder is a definite possibility
