Survivor Nominated For TCA Award

Survivor: Cambodia – Second Chance nominated for a 2016 Television Critics Association Award.

Today, the Television Critics Association (TCA) announced the nominations for the 32nd Annual TCA Awards. Amongst the long list of nominees is last fall’s Survivor: Cambodia – Second Chance, which is nominated in the Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming category. Survivor will go head-to-head with Netflix’s popular documentary series Making a Murderer, and I Am Cait!, the E! network’s docu-series which chronicles the life of Caitlyn Jenner post-gender transition.

This announcement marks the fourth time Survivor has been nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Reality Programming, but the first time a specific season has been nominated. Survivor was also nominated for Program of the Year and Outstanding New Program in 2001. It has never won a TCA award.

Survivor: Cambodia featured twenty former players voted back onto the island by viewers. It was a highly competitive season, which saw Cambridge, MA firefighter Jeremy Collins crowned as its winner last December. Survivor host Jeff Probst named it as his “number one” season of all time.

The TCA is a media organization comprised of over 200 professional TV critics and journalists from across the United States and Canada. The 2016 TCA Awards, which take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday, August 6, 2016, will recognize outstanding television programming from the 2015-16 season, honoring actors, producers, and programs. Jane The Virgin star, Jaime Camil, will host the event.
