The Emmy Nominations Were Announced Last Night – All The Main Categories Here

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

The past year has graced us with some very tasty offerings when it comes to series.

Between HBO, Netflix, Hulu, Showmax and FX, we have been graced with some of the best dramas and comedies of our time.

Yesterday morning, to solidify this, the 69th Primetime Emmy Award nominations were announced and, as CNN suggests, it looks to be “the year of the freshman in one of the biggest categories”.

Here’s a brief summary:

Five new shows, including “This Is Us,” “Westworld,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “The Crown” and “Stranger Things,” will compete with returning nominees “Better Call Saul” and “House of Cards” for best drama.

“Stranger Things,” which has been a breakout hit for Netflix, scored 19 nominations.

The comedy sketch series “Saturday Night Live” and the HBO drama “Westworld” both earned the most Emmy nominations for individual shows with 22.

“SNL” is now the most Emmy nominated series of all time with a total of 231 over the history of the show.

“Atlanta,” “Black-ish,” “Master of None,” “Modern Family,” “Silicon Valley,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” and “Veep” are vying for best comedy.

Two shows with very different political themes scored multiple nominations for Emmy Awards. HBO’s satirical comedy “Veep” earned 17 nominations, and the newcomer Hulu dystopian drama “The Handmaid’s Tale” earned 13.
