The Television Critics Association’s TCA Awards nominations are out, and it looks a lot like the Emmy race.

That wasn’t always the case, as TV critics and Television Academy voters were traditionally on very different pages. But that has changed in recent years, as Emmy nominations began to recognize more critics faves, such as “The Americans” and “Orphan Black” star Tatiana Maslany (who even won last year).
