The inaugural Hollywood Critics Association (HCA) TV Awards are rapidly approaching, and the official list of nominees has finally been revealed! The award ceremony will pay tribute to the best of television, and it will also be the first of its kind to separate broadcast/cable programming from streaming.

Amazon Studios’ hit series The Boys has scored four nominations today. Based on the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys in set in a world where superheroes exist … and they’re kind of terrible. The worst of them all can be found amongst The Seven, a team of celebrity Supes working under the villainous corporation Vought. Meanwhile, the Boys are a ragtag group of vigilantes fighting to take them all down once and for all (and trying not to die in the process).

As for the nominations, The Boys has received a nod for Best Streaming Series, Drama.

Meanwhile, Karl Urban has been nominated for Best Actor in a Streaming Series, Drama for his portrayal of our beloved, foul-mouthed, Aloha shirt-wearing Billy Butcher.
