The Television Critics Association, which was the first group to mint BBC America's Killing Eve as an awards darling, has done the same with Netflix's Russian Doll and FX's Pose.

Pose and Russian Doll lead the nominations for the 2019 TCA Awards, with four each, with HBO (15) edging Netflix (14) for the most overall mentions. Pose, created by Steven Canals, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, collected nominations for drama series, drama actor for star Billy Porter, new program and the prestigious program of the year. Russian Doll, starring and created by Natasha Lyonne, earned nominations for new program, achievement in comedy and for leading lady Lyonne as well as program of the year.

Amazon's Fleabag (three) was the second most-nominated series, followed by a slew of programs with two apiece. HBO led all outlets with 15 noms on the strength of Sharp Objects, Barry, Veep, Game of Thrones, Leaving Neverland, Sesame Street, John Oliver, Deadwood, Chernobyl and breakout Succession.

Succession is up for outstanding new program, where it will compete against Netflix's Dead to Me, Comedy Central's The Other Two, Pose, Russian Doll and FX's What We Do in the Shadows. Pose and Russian Doll will go head to head with Chernobyl, Fleabag, Game of Thrones and Netflix's When They See Us for program of the year.

"From departing juggernauts that changed the TV game to new shows that test the boundaries of what the medium can do and be, this has been a landmark season for television across all networks and platforms,” said Daniel Fienberg, TCA president and chief TV critic at The Hollywood Reporter. “This strong nomination roster represents a diverse blend of talented performers, many of whom are also creators, and groundbreaking content that made us laugh, cry and gasp. Every category is bursting with hard choices, but we couldn’t ask for a better problem to have as we gather together to honor yet another terrific television season and celebrate 35 years of the TCA Awards."

The awards are voted on by more than 200 television critics and journalists across the country. Winners for the 35th annual TCA Awards will be announced Saturday, Aug. 3, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills during the TCA summer press tour. Desus and Mero, hosts of the Showtime weekly late-night series — which is nominated for sketch/variety series — will host this year's ceremony. The Career Achievement and Heritage Award winners will be announced at a later date.
