Netflix’s “Russian Doll” and the first season of FX’s “Pose” lead the 2019 Television Critics Association awards nominations with four nods each.

Both shows are up for in the Outstanding New Program and Program of the Year categories, as well as in their individual genre categories. “Pose” star Billy Porter will also compete for Individual Achievement in Drama, while “Russian Doll’s” Natasha Lyonne will compete in the same category for comedy.

The widely praised second season of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s “Fleabag” has also put up an impressive showing, with three nominations.

The winners will be announced on Saturday, Aug. 3 at the ceremony hosted by the comedy duo Desus & Mero, whose eponymous Showtime comedy has also been recognized in the sketch/variety category.

HBO leads with 15 nominations overall, besting Netflix, which scored 14. FX ranks third with eight nods, while Amazon follows with five. All four have shows up for “Program of the Year,” with HBO’s “Chernobyl,” the final season of “Game of Thrones” and Ava DuVernay’s Netflix miniseries “When They See Us” set to compete against the three shows mentioned above.

“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 TCA president Daniel Fienberg. “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.”
