We know you are all dying to know who made the cut from this morning’s Emmy award nominations! So we have taken the time to give you the what’s hot and who’s not from this year’s top picks! With so many categories and such amazing talent, it’s always a cut throat race to the podium.
Obvs Game Of Thrones was going to get nominated for outstanding drama series because duh, It’s GOT! The show racked up a total of twenty-three nominations but was closely followed (with just one nomination less), by The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, who received a respectable twenty two nods.
Surprisingly, Orange is the New Black stayed in its prison box with no nominations at all. It was vetoed out as a comedy by the Emmys governing body, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and categorised as a drama instead.
In the Outstanding Lead actress awards category, Kirsten Dunst, Felicity Huffman, Claire Danes and Carrie Mathison all received nominations and are industries top picks to win.
It’s also no surprise that my major girl crush Emilia Clarke has been nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her role as the gorgeous Daenerys Targaryen in Game Of Thrones.
Liev Schreiber also made the nominees cut for outstanding lead actor for his portrayal of the main protagonist in the series Ray Donovan.
House of Cards climbed their way to the top of the potential winning candidate list for Outstanding Drama Series, alongside some other great talents that include the beautifully constructed Downton Abbey, The Americans, Homeland, Mr. Robot and Better Call Saul.
Now for some GOSS! The 2016 Emmys boast the HIGHEST EVER number of non-white actors to be nominated! At the forefront of this is the fab Taraj P Henson for her role as Cookie Lyon in the Fox debut melodrama Empire.
The sassy Viola Davis was a no brainer for her outstanding performance as Professor Annalise Keating in How to Get Away with Murder. Last year, Davis became the first African-American woman to win an Emmy, as the best actress in a drama series. Her fans worldwide are pumped for a second win!
In the male department, Indian American actor Aziz Ansari has been nominated for his leading role in Master of None.
Watch this space to find out how it all unfolds on 18th September 2016!
