"Justified" may have wrapped its run earlier this year, but the FX crime drama about a maverick lawman (Timothy Olyphant) just got a nice send-off from the Critics' Choice Television Awards.

"Justified" and HBO's miniseries "Olive Kitteridge" — a domestic drama about an abrasive retired schoolteacher (Frances McDormand) — got the most nods in the nominations announced Wednesday by the Broadcast Television Journalists Assn.

But the competition will be tough. In the best drama category, "Justified" is facing off against FX's "The Americans," Fox's "Empire," HBO's "Game of Thrones," CBS' "The Good Wife," Showtime's "Homeland" and Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black."

Best comedy contenders are Comedy Central's "Broad City," the CW's "Jane the Virgin," CBS' "Mom," Amazon's "Transparent," FX's "You're the Worst" and HBO's "Silicon Valley" and "Veep."

"Olive Kitteridge" is in the limited series category, alongside Fox's "24: Live Another Day," ABC's "American Crime," BET's "The Book of Negroes," Sundance's "The Honorable Woman" and PBS' "Wolf Hall."

Viewers can find a complete list of categories here.

HBO led the networks with a total of 27 nominations; FX came in second with 16.

The 5th annual Critics' Choice Television Awards will be telecast live on A&E on May 31 from the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
