The Emmy Nominations Are Out

The Emmy Nominations Are Out

In our current #peaktv world, we can't imagine how anyone decides on the Emmy nominations. There's just So. Much. Television. But somehow they manage. This morning, The Handmaid's Tale's Samira Wiley and New Amsterdam's Ryan Eggold announced this year's nominees from the TV Academy headquarters in North Hollywood. There are some surprises (Jessica Biel for The Sinner?), an incredibly stacked comedy category (without Modern Family for the first time in what feels like millenia), and a number of expected Emmy's stalwarts (Game of Thrones, The Handmaid's Tale, This is Us). We'd like to save some time and just give all the Emmys to Sandra Oh, but the show — which airs on September 17th with hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che — must go on. Here are the nominees for the major categories.
