Lange, who plays Joan Crawford, is the heavy favorite. “Big Little Lies” will likely end up in several mini-series categories, but which actresses will get individual nominations?
By contrast, the TV movie category is a bit of a mess, with a pair of subpar HBO entries (“The Wizard of Lies” and “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”) joined by installments of “Black Mirror” and Masterpiece’s “Sherlock” as well as NBC’s latest Dolly Parton-inspired Christmas movie.
“Veep”, the most-nominated comedy with 17 bids, has a chance for its third consecutive top comedy trophy.
“This Is Us”, the most-talked-about new broadcast series last season, earned 11 nominations in all. And since it’s nearly always impossible to tell exactly how Emmy voters will respond to a new show, the Emmy futures for Westworld could vary wildly.
And though Westworld lead all dramas with 22 nominations, it was tied by Saturday Night Live, which itself got 22 nominations on the comedy side. But where exactly can you find seven comedies competing for the Outstanding Comedy Emmy this fall for your online viewing enjoyment? Other Netflix shows to pick up Emmy nods include Master of None, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Grace & Frankie, The Crown, and the 2016 sleeper hitStranger Things.
Watch along with us, and we’ll keep the full list updated below as the nominations roll out in case you missed any.
The Emmy Awards will air September 17 on CBS with host Stephen Colbert. It won 12 Emmys a year ago, including its second consecutive best drama award.
We really shouldn’t be all that surprised that Netflix’s breakout hit scored 18 (!) nominations, incuding well-deserved noms for Millie Bobby Brown and David Harbour.
“For me to stand here as not the typical leading man, and to have come home with this I think speaks a lot about where we’re headed and I think we can just keep going further in that direction”, Malek said backstage. It’s the most talented group of people I’ve ever worked with, and it’s so exciting to see such incredibly nice things happen to such incredibly nice people.
GLEE star Jane Lynch (ANNIE) received a nod for Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama for DROPPING THE SOAP on Amazon.
“House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey, a double Oscar victor who has never won an Emmy, should pick up a nomination in the best drama actor category. The ladder also received a nomination for Outstanding Technical Direction. Drinks all round, if only I drank.
He’s not the only visitor to American TV who will be celebrating.
It was a insane season, but House of Cards squeaked into the Outstanding Drama category, leaving The Americans, The Leftovers, and 13 Reasons Why without a spot in the coveted category.
