“TCA members have recognized a record number of first-time nominees for this year’s awards. In our 32-year history this is one of the most diverse slates of genres and programs we’ve ever had,” TCA president Amber Dowling said. “It’s been a banner year for fresh, noteworthy content and we’re looking forward to seeing which shows and actors grab top prizes following the difficult votes ahead.”

The TCA Awards will also bestow a special Heritage Award trophy to one long-standing program that has had a major cultural or social impact.

This year’s nominees include the late comedian Garry Shandling‘s talk show satire “The Larry Sanders Show,” The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “Seinfeld,” “Star Trek,” and “Twin Peaks.”
