TCA Awards 2021: Ted Lasso, Hacks, Mare of Easttown, I May Destroy You and WandaVision Lead Nominations

·3 min read

Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso leads the nominees for the 37th annual Television Critics Association (TCA) Awards, which will forego an in-person ceremony once more and instead announce the winners at an as-yet-specified date.

The Jason Sudeikis-fronted comedy amassed five nominations from the critics organization, which counts several TVLine staffers among its members, while Disney+’s WandaVision, HBO’s I May Destroy You and Mare of Easttown, and HBO Max’s Hacks each netted four nods. (Of note: Categories have been expanded this year to feature a total of eight nominees each, with the exception of Outstanding Achievement In Variety, Talk or Sketch, which has nine.)
