The 35th Annual TCA Awards, which will be held in an invitation-only presentation on Saturday, August 3, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, will be hosted by nominees Desus & Mero. The event will also coincide with the 2019 Summer TCA Press Tour, running from Tuesday, July 23, through Thursday, August 8.

“From departing juggernauts that changed the TV game to new shows that test the boundaries of what the medium can do and be, this has been a landmark season for television across all networks and platforms,” said Daniel Fienberg, TCA President and The Hollywood Reporter Chief TV Critic.

“This strong nomination roster represents a diverse blend of talented performers, many of whom are also creators, and groundbreaking content that made us laugh, cry and gasp. Every category is bursting with hard choices, but we couldn’t ask for a better problem to have as we gather together to honor yet another terrific television season and celebrate 35 years of the TCA Awards.”
