The BBC show is up for five awards, including Outstanding New Program and Individual Achievement in Drama.

AceShowbiz - Actress Sandra Oh's new drama series Killing Eve has topped the 2018 Television Critics Association (TCA) Awards with five nominations.

The BBC show, based on author Luke Jennings' book franchise Codename Villanelle, picked up mentions for Outstanding New Program, and Individual Achievement in Drama nods for both former Grey's Anatomy star Sandra and her co-star, Jodie Corner.

It will also compete for Program of the Year with four-time nominee The Americans, Atlanta, The Good Place, This Is Us, and last year's (17) winner, The Handmaid's Tale.

In addition, Killing Eve, The Americans, This Is Us, and The Handmaid's Tale will go head-to-head for Outstanding Achievement in Drama, alongside The Crown and The Good Fight.

There were also drama acting nods for The Americans stars and real-life couple Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell, and Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale) and Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story).

Meanwhile, Atlanta will seek to defend its title for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy, against GLOW, Barry, The Good Place, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and One Day at a Time, as Atlanta's creator and star, Donald Glover, competes for the Individual Achievement in Comedy accolade. He is nominated alongside Pamela Adlon (Better Things), Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Ted Danson (The Good Place), and Bill Hader (Barry).

Another notable mention comes in the Outstanding Achievement in News and Information category, for which tragic chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain earns a posthumous nod for his CNN series, Parts Unknown. He committed suicide earlier this month, while in the middle of filming new episodes of the food and travel show.
