Netflix Topples HBO in Emmy Nominations

Netflix Topples HBO in Emmy Nominations

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Atlanta itself was nominated for the Emmy for a Comedy Series. The awards ceremony will be held in Los Angeles on September 17.

Although season seven of Game of Thrones aired in summer 2017, due to the Emmys' eligibility cutoff, the HBO drama had to wait until this year to submit anything for consideration.

HBO is no piker: It claimed 108 bids. He and Berg are nominated for outstanding writing for a comedy series for penning the first episode, and Hader also got a nod for directing "Chapter 1: Make Your Mark". Medfield's Uzo Aduba has been nominated for Supporting Actress for "Orange Is the New Black" three times (winning twice, in 2014 and 2015), while Wayland and West Roxbury's Taylor Schilling was nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2014. Others in the category include "black-ish", "Silicon Valley", "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt".

The variety series category also left "The Tonight Show" on the sidelines for the second consecutive year, deservedly so, given that Jimmy Fallon's brand of vanilla-flavored latenight comedy feels a little too tepid for the times. She again is nominated for best supporting actress in a comedy series for her role as Karen on the revival on NBC's "Will & Grace". Oh had earned five supporting bids for "Grey's Anatomy".


"It has been another exceptional year in television marked by extraordinary storytelling from a wealth of diverse and innovative content creators", Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington said in a statement. "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied". Or maybe it's just that we're never going to be happy in this era of "peak TV". "This is the most diverse class of performer nominees we've had - we're nearly up to a third, which is fantastic", Maury McIntyre, TV academy president.

But let's not celebrate too much: there's still a lot of work to do.

The 2018 Emmys will be hosted by Saturday Night Live stars Colin Jost and Michael Che. If he wins, he will earn the coveted EGOT, having previously won a Grammy, Oscar, and Tony.
