Donald Glover, John Legend, & Bruno Mars Score Emmy Nominations

Donald Glover, John Legend, & Bruno Mars Score Emmy Nominations

Look, we're happy for those who did get nominated (most of them, anyway), but COME ON! Only one acting category, supporting actor in a drama series, had all-white nominees.

Top of the Lake: China Girl, shot in Sydney, also missed out in other categories, including best limited TV series, while lead actress Elisabeth Moss failed to earn a nomination. "I share this moment with my community", Oh said in a statement. She added a postscript: "I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied".

"Game of Thrones" roared back onto the Emmy battlefield, topping Thursday's nominations with 22 bids but facing a formidable opponent in "The Handmaid's Tale, " last year's top drama series. NBC had 78 nods.

Two black and Jewish actresses were nominated for best comedy guest actress: Tiffany Haddish, for her performance in an episode of "Saturday Night Live", and former "Saturday Night Live" star Maya Rudolph, for her performance in "The Good Place". Game of Thrones is second with 129 and this year surpassed ER as the top drama nominee.

The newbie comedies aced out long-time Emmy favorite "Modern Family", a five-time victor and perennial nominee since it debuted in 2009 on ABC.

Some of TV's best work is now being done in the realm of limited series, and that was true again this season, with "Patrick Melrose", "Godless" and "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story" all making strong bids for attention.




John Legend is in a position to join the elite EGOT club. He'd be the 13th person to pull it off, not counting honourary awards.

Every year, there are some surprising oversights.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Atlanta itself was nominated for the Emmy for a Comedy Series.

The Emmys recognize programs shown in the year to May 31, meaning some of the usual heavy hitters - from "Better Call Saul" to "House of Cards" and "Veep" - are absent this time around. It was not in the running in 2017.

HBO's Westworld received 21 nominations, while the seventh season of Game of Thrones received 22 nominations. The last time there were three freshman series in the top comedy category was 2010 (Modern Family, Glee and Nurse Jackie).
