30th Annual Television Critics Association (TCA) Award Nominees

We have known for years that sometimes the TCA picks contenders that do not go on to Emmy glory, but I will say that in terms of buzz and press, these are still important awards and can impact the race as a whole. Which means that shows like True Detective, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Orange is the New Black, the rejuvenated The Good Wife, and The Mindy Project all received some excellent (and deserved) mentions that could improve their Emmy chances. In terms of individual performers, most of them will end up in the Emmy hunt, but there was boost for outside contenders like Tatiana Maslany, Mindy Kaling, Matthew Rhys, and Julianna Margulies (who was snubbed last year). The winners will be announced on July 19th. Check out the full list below:
