Congratulations to The Americans for winning Best Drama in the 2015 Critics' Choice Awards tonight! Co-showrunner Joe Weisberg gave the speech, and Annet Mahendru (Nina), Alison Wright (Martha), and Holly Taylor (Paige) were also in attendance. [Edited to add: here's a video of the win and Weisberg's speech for Americans or non-Americans with a good VPN.]

And speaking of awards, Goldderby seems to think they have a shot at an Emmy or two this year, too (though I'll believe it when I see it, personally).

An interview with co-showrunner Joe Weisberg, but one that's different from anything we've seen before: a dialogue with Russian journalist Andrei Soldatov about Soviet illegals and why countries spy. Only part of the interview is about The Americans, but it's still really fascinating.

Slate Magazine has an interview with showrunners Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg

And travel magazine The Pursuitist also has an interview with Joe Weisberg.

IGN was better late than never with their season three review.

And finally, TIME magazine included The Americans in a piece on How TV Sex Got Real.

A little later than usual, so you get an extra-large dose!

Deadline and Hollywood Reporter both have interviews with Matthew Rhys (Philip). Deadline also has an interview with Keri Russell (Elizabeth).

Goldderby continues its series of Skype interviews with an interview with the show's composer, Nathan Barr. TVgoodness.com also reports on an evening with Barr and fellow television composer Jeff Russo.

Indiawest features a short interview with Annet Mahendru (Nina).

The two-punch hit of the The Americans season opener and the season finale made Indiewire's list of the most shocking TV moments of 2014 so far. Three of the show's episodes also made the list of Goldderby's top thirty drama episodes of the Emmy season.

The Critics' Choice Awards have been and gone. The show may not have won any of the things it was nominated for, but Matthew Rhys (Philip) was a presenter. The Hollywood Reporter also talks about what the show's nominations for those awards could mean for potential Emmy nominations.

Speaking of the Emmys, Alan Sepinwall from Hitfix has been putting out "if I had an Emmy ballot" columns, and representatives of the show have made his lists for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Hitfix's Daniel Fienberg also picked the show itself for Outstanding Drama Series.

TV Guide is also choosing folks from The Americans for Emmy nominations for Supporting Actress in a Drama and Lead Actor in a Drama.

TV.com also has the show represented in its picks for the Supporting Actress in a Drama category, and Brian Tallerico from RogerEbert.com has it represented in the Lead Actress in a Drama and Supporting Actress in a Drama categories, as well as Outstanding Dramatic Series.

Finally, Vulture is also putting out its own TV "awards," and the show has representatives in those with Philip and Elizabeth as Television's best couple and Matthew Rhys as Best Drama Performer.

First up, it's the beginning of awards season, and the future looks bright:

• The Television Critics Association (TCA) has nominated Matthew Rhys (Philip) for Individual Achievement in Drama and the show for Outstanding Achievement in Drama.

• The show has also received several Critics' Choice Awards nominations: for Best Drama Series, Matthew Rhys for Best Actor in a Drama Series, Keri Russell (Elizabeth) for Best Actress in a Drama Series, and Annet Mahendru (Nina) for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

• GoldDerby, which is in the business of predicting who's going to win various show business awards, warns that The Americans could ambush the Emmys as well, while Boston Globe columnist Matthew Gilbert includes the show on a list of shows that Emmy voters should make sure to "show some love" to.

• The UK's TV Choice Magazine is also holding its own web-based awards, with The Americans nominated as "Best International Series" (feel free to vote yourself, if you want).

And in other show-related news:

As predicted, The Americans was at the top of the Hollywood Reporter's "power rankings" in its last week of contention.

Rolling Stone featured the show on its list of eight TV shows you should be watching right now.

Flavorwire talked about the show in its summary of the week's top five TV moments.

Elizabeth and Philip made it to #11 on tvline's list of favourite television pairings.

Starpulse made a list of their top five favourite wigs that Keri Russell wore in season two.

IGN's "Channel Surfing" podcast featured the finales of The Americans and Hannibal.

Speaking of those two shows, here's a Salon piece that argues that The Americans and Hannibal are the two best love stories on television.

The blogger behind "Based on Nothing" wrote that the second season of The Americans made it FX's best show.

...and if you're after an oddly refreshing change from all of this praise from critics, here's your outlier--the guy who liked season one but disliked season two.

Well, our little show sadly didn't win in any of the categories where it was nominated in last night's Critics' Choice Awards, but we can't be too sad about it because the nominations for the TCA Awards just came out, and The Americans is the most nominated show! Matthew Rhys is nominated for Individual Achievement in Drama, and the show is nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Drama, New Program, and Program of the Year.

A full list of nominees is here.
