Emmy Snubs and Surprises: Queer Eye, The Americans, Issa Rae
The Emmy nominations were announced Thursday, and fans can count on contentious races. With awards stalwarts like Veep, Better Call Saul and House of Cards unable to contend for Emmys this year, several categories were left wide open for newcomers and long-overlooked vets. Critics and fans will be delighted with a few inspiring storylines: Sandra Oh set a record. Issa Rae finally got nominated. The Americans may just pull off a win or two following its last season. But there were disappointments too: stans for David Lynch
s bizarre Twin Peaks, Emilia Clarkes fearsome turn in Game of Thrones or the irreverent Netflix true crime spoof American Vandal will certainly be disappointed. But what can we do except head out into the parking lot and spray paint inappropriate pictures on the Emmy voters cars.
Here are all the Emmy snubs, surprises and storylines to come out of the nominations. Netflix Nabs More Nominations Than HBO For 17 years, HBO has always earned the most Emmy nominations. Netflix finally broke that streak, earning 112 nomination
s this year. The change signals a shift in the power dynamics between streaming services and the premium cable giant: ATT recently told HBO they have to produce more2020第90期跑狗玄机图 shows to keep up with Netflix. Sandr
a Oh Sets a New Milestone Killing Eves Sandra Oh is the first Asian actor to be nominated for the Best Actress in a Drama category. The Canadian actor is no stranger to the Emmys: Shes been nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama five times. But Killing Eve Gets Snubbed from Best Drama Category To fans outrage, neither the breakout BBC America show nor Ohs costar Jodi Comer earned Emmy nominations Queer Eye Solidifies Its Place as a Cultural Phenomenon Fourteen years ago, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy took home an Emmy. Now Netflixs warmhearted reboot of that
series, Queer Eye, has a chance to do the same. Queer Eye is arguably the frontrunner in the race: The shows message of acceptance has become a rallying cry for fans in the past few months, and its five hosts have rocketed to stardom. Game of Thrones Emilia Clarke and
Kit Harrington Snubbed All three Lannister siblings (Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) earned acting nominations. Dinklage even broke a record for most-nominated actor in the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama category. But the fantasy series two heroes, Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington, were left out in the cold. Issa Rae Is Finally Nominated
Insecure was immediately heralded as one of the best shows on TV when it premiered in 2016, but its creator and star Issa Rae was
snubbed by the Emmysuntil now. She get a nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy. After Its Cancellation, Roseanne Gets Snubbed
Following Roseanne Barrs racist tweet and the subsequent cancellation of Roseanne, perhaps it isnt surprising that Emmy voters snubbed the show. However, Laurie Metcalf did earn a nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Twin Peaks: The Return Doesnt Earn Any Major Nominations The esoteric resurrection of Twin Peaks not only failed to get nominated for Best Limited Series. Its star-studded cast failed to get nominated in any of the acting categories. Fans are most upset by the snub of star Kyle MacLachlan. The Americanss Last Shot at Emmy Gold Critical darling The Americans has long
been overlooked by the Emmys. Neither of its two leads, Matthew Rhys or Keri Russella real-life couple who play married Soviet spies on the showhav
e ever won an acting award, and the show has never won best drama. A win for
either actor of the show would be a wonderful sendoff for the show. American Vandal, The Good Place
, Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend are all snubbed A handful of critical favorites in the comedy category failed to earn Emmy nominations on Thursday. Netflixs surprisingly brilliant true crime parody American Vandal was overlooked despite boasting a rabid fandom. The mind-bending NBC comedy The Good Place was overlooked despite being the most innovative show on network television. The uplifting (and increasingly political) Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, bo
th Golden Globe favorites, were snubbed as well. Anthony Bourdain earns six nominations Anthony Bourdain has won plenty of Emmys before, but his posthumous six nominations will make for an emotional ceremony following his untimely death. Write to Eliana Dockterman at email@example.com.
