'Empire' and 'Transparent' Top 2015 TCA Award Nominations

The 2015 nominations for the Television Critics Association are in, with freshman shows Empire and Transparent getting the most nominations with four each. The two will compete against each other for Program of the Year alongside HBO's Game of Thrones, FX's The Americans and the final season of AMC's Mad Men.

Empire and Transparent also picked up nominations for their stars, Taraji P. Henson and Jeffrey Tambor. There's a lot of new blood in this year's TCA Award nominations, with Fresh Off the Boat's Constance Wu, How to Get Away with Murder's Viola Davis, Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk and Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez also being recognized.
Jane the Virgin picked up three nominations, breaking through for the CW, which is a network typically ignored by critics and awards shows. But the CW should be doubly excited as another one of its new dramas, The Flash, was nominated for New Program of the Year. That's a huge accomplishment for a superhero show especially since it's up against Jane, Empire, Transparent and Better Call Saul..

Inside Amy Schumer managed to score two nominations while ABC Family picked up a pair of nominations for Outstanding Children's Program with The Fosters and Switched at Birth. Other notable nominations include HBO's The Jinx and Last Week Tonight.

Here's a complete list of the 2015 Television Critics Association Award nominations. The winners will be revealed Saturday, August 8 at the annual TCA press tour.
