And the Nominees for the 2018 Emmys Are…
And some Canadian actors made the list!
Attention TV lovers: the 2018 Emmy nominations are here and some of your fave shows (The Crown and The Handmaid’s Tale, anyone?) made the list.
Two Canadians were nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series. Tatiana Maslany was recognized for her multiple roles in the final season of twisty clone drama Orphan Black, while Sandra Oh received a nod for her work in thriller Killing Eve—making her the first Asian woman to be nominated for best actress in a drama. (Keri Russell, Elisabeth Moss, Evan Rachel Wood and Claire Foy were also nominated in this star-studded category.)
After not being eligible at last year’s ceremony (because of when the season aired), Game of Thrones was back at the top of the nominee-pack, earning 22 nominations (including Best Drama Series). Westworld and SNL are close behind with 21 nods each.
There are, of course, tons more of nominations to obsess over—Insecure‘s Issa Rae and Blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross are both up for Lead Actress in a Comedy! This Is Us received a bunch of noms! John Legend got nominated for Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert!—but we now have a bunch of TV to catch up on. You can take a look at the full list of noms here.
