This years Emmys are as competitive as ever.
The most-nominated dramas are Game of Thrones and Westworld with 22 nominations each. The Handmaid’s Tale is another returning drama fightin for the award. Fan favourites Stranger Things and This Is Us were also nominated for Outstanding Drama for their second seasons.
As for comedy, typically this category is dominated by Veep. But sadly the show’s final season was delayed while it’s star Julia Louis-Dreyfus underwent cancer treatment. Veep had previously won Outstanding Comedy Series three years in a row and Julia Louis-Dreyfus has won Lead Actress in a Comedy six years in a row.
The new show contenders for this category are The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Glow, Black-ish, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Atlanta. Atlanta has a few more noms total including Donald Glover for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, which he took home last year. Modern Family fans are shocked that it wasn’t nominated after being on the list since it premiered in 2009.
As for lead actress in a comedy series, Rachel Brosnahan, Issa Rae, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Lily Tomlin are a few crowd favourites nominated.
Unsurprisingly, last year’s winner of Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series Sterling K. Brown is nominated again, and he’ll be up against his This Is Us costar Milo Ventimiglia for the second year in a row. Maybe Milo will take it this time? Or one of the other fantastic lead actors up for the award!
Once again this year, Millie Bobby Brown received a nom for best supporting actress in a drama series and she is up against some pretty tough competition including Alexis Bledel, Lena Headey (lee-na hee-dy), and last years winner Ann Dowd.
Some nominations that shocked us… Jimmy Fallon didn’t get a nom with his fellow late night talk show hosts like Samantha Bee, Jimmy Kimmel, Trevor Noah, James Corden, and Stephen Colbert.
This Is Us fans are feeling a little cheated because Mandy Moore and Justin Hartley didn’t get nominated for the second year in a row. One fan tweeted QUOTE, “i know mandy moore did not do that whole hospital sequence and justin hartley didn’t do his whole solo episode just to be ROBBED LIKE THAT!!!!!!” And if you’re a fellow This Is Us fan, you know exactly what they mean.
A comedy snub this year was The Good Place. While Ted Danson received a nom for lead actor, Kristen Bell and the show itself saw nothing and fans are shoooocked.
One off nominations include Tiffany Haddish for her guest appearance on SNL and Viola Davis for playing her character Annalise Keating from How to Get Away with Murder in a crossover episode of Scandal. Random, but we’re here for it.So guys we want to hear from you, which shows are you shocked didn’t make the cut this year? Who are you rooting for as far as best actor and actress goes?
