at .

The nominations for the 36th annual Television Critics Association have been announced. 

Instead of having in-person ceremony, winners will be announced later this summer. 

Awards shows are still adapting to a COVID-19 world. 

Watchmen - Sister Night

Leading the way with four nominations each are HBO's Watchmen and Netflix's Unbelievable. 

Hulu’s Mrs. America, AMC’s Better Call Saul, Pop TV’s Schitt’s Creek, and HBO’s Succession each secured three nominations.

Shiv Folded Up - Succession Season 2 Episode 10

Not too shabby, right?
