Daredevil earned nominations for "Outsanding Sound Editing For a Series" and "Outstanding Stunt Coordination For A Drama Series, Limited Series or Movie."

Fox's Gotham also earned a nomination for "Outstanding Stunt Coordination For A Drama Series, Limited Series or Movie," as well as "Outstanding Sound Editing For A Series" and "Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series."

AMC's Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462 for "Outstanding Short Form Comedy or Drama Series."
