The 2019 Emmy Nominations Announced

Thrones Finale Water Gaffe Reactions

The Television Academy today has announced the nominations for the 71st Emmy Awards which will be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on September 22nd. Actors Ken Jeong and D’Arcy Carden were joined by Television Academy Chairman and CEO Frank Scherma at the nominations ceremony.

HBO’s fantasy drama “Game of Thrones” scored 32 nominations, the most for any program in a single season – breaking the previous record of 26 set in 1994 by “NYPD Blue”. It dominates some categories including four nominations for supporting actress in a drama series and three for supporting actor.

HBO also scored well with “Chernobyl’ taking the most nominations for a limited series, and “Barry” doing very well with the comedy nominations. In all, HBO has 137 nominations across the main, smaller and tech awards this year – the most in the channel’s history and beating main rival Netflix’s 117.

Surprises included some big snubs like some key awards for “Homecoming,” “True Detective,” “GLOW,” “Maniac” and “Succession” though welcome inclusions such as “Fleabag” and “Schitt’s Creek” proving real players.
