'The Fosters', 'Orange Is the New Black' and 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Nominated for TCA Awards

By Stacy Lambe

On Tuesday, the Television Critics Association revealed the nominees for the 30th annual TCA Awards. Among the nominees are several fan favorites, including The Fosters, Orange Is the New Black, Orphan Black and RuPaul's Drag Race.

Despite getting into hot water earlier this year for its transphobic language, RuPaul's Drag Race earned a nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming. Season 6, which crowned Bianca Del Rio, was definitely the most successful of the Logo TV series.

OITNB picked up nominations for Outstanding New Program and Program of the Year, while The Fosters earned its first nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Youth Programming. 

The awards' frontrunners are True Detective with four nominations and The Good Wife with three. Both series are up against OITNB for Program of the Year.
