The Amazon comedy nabbed three wins at the Television Critics Awards.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge just had to make more space on her mantle.
In addition to the Television Critics Association awarding Fleabag Program of the Year, it took home a win for Waller-Bridge for Individual Achievement in Comedy and the series itself won the equivalent of Comedy Series. It was the only show that won multiple awards.
Natasha Lyonne, fresh off of her final season of Orange is the New Black, had a good night as well since Netflix’s Russian Doll was named the best new show of the season. HBO, however, was the network that took home the most awards of any other network. It won 4 awards, including Achievement in News and Information for the controversial documentary, Leaving Neverland, and Achievement in Movie or Miniseries for Chernobyl.
The TCA nominations usually differ from the Emmy nominations, but Fleabag was nominated for a surprising 11 awards earlier this month. Does the series have a chance of winning some real prizes this September? This certainly gives HBO an edge in winning the Limited Series category this year. Will these wins translate to wins at this year’s Emmy Awards?
