Emmys 2017: nominees 'chuffed', 'thrilled' (and determined to try harder)

13 July 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

What Thursday morning’s nominees are saying.

There were plenty of smiles after the nominations were announced. Click here for the list.

Outstanding Drama Series

“Chuffed, thrilled, proud, honoured! So delighted for everyone involved. A proper fat cigar moment, if only I smoked. Drinks all round, if only I drank. I shall have to make do with turning cartwheels.”

Peter Morgan, The Crown

“Best morning ever! So thrilling to be recognized especially in such a wide range of categories! When we at 21 Laps first read the Duffer Brothers’ pilot two years ago, we knew it and they were something special. My collaboration with these mad genius twins, and the way our incredible cast and crew have helped bring the Duffer brothers’ vision and voice to life, is thrilling. We set out to make this weird little show because we loved it. The way it’s been embraced by fans, critics and now the Television Academy has turned »

Emmys: No ‘Game of Thrones’ Means New Drama Champs Will Be Crowned

13 July 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There was an interesting byproduct of series like “Game of Thrones” and “Orphan Black” sitting out this year’s Emmy race, and others like “Mr. Robot” stumbling with voters this time around: all seven major drama competitions are without a defending champ.

HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” which nearly over-shadowed the Thursday morning nominations announcement with a lavish season seven premiere at Los Angeles’ Walt Disney Concert Hall Wednesday night, took the drama series crown last year. This year, with all that chain mail on the sidelines, the race will be between “Better Call Saul,” “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “House of Cards,” “Stranger Things,” “This is Us” and “Westworld.”

Last year’s lead actor winner, meanwhile, was “Mr. Robot’s” Rami Malek. He was passed over this time, leaving Sterling K. Brown (“This is Us”), Anthony Hopkins (“Westworld”), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul”), Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”), Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan”), Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”) and »

Emmy Nominations: The Biggest Snubs and Surprises

13 July 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With more than 400 television shows to choose from and only a handful of ballot slots per category, the 21,000-plus voting members of the TV Academy had no choice but to leave quite a few strong contenders off the 2017 Emmy ballots. However, with such a plethora of worthy candidates, there were also quite a few pleasant surprises along the way. Now that the official nominations have been announced, Variety breaks down the biggest snubs and surprises of this small-screen award season.

Snub: Oprah Winfrey

You may have thought the Academy could never snub Winfrey — voters just spot her name on the ballot, and even if they haven’t seen her in the role for which she’s nominated, they’ll usually still give her the nod. But this year that proved not to be true, as Winfrey was overlooked for limited series “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.”

Surprise: “Westworld” ties with “Saturday Night Live” for the most »

Emmys 2017 Snubs and Surprises: ‘Transparent,’ ‘The Leftovers,’ and Pamela Adlon(!)

13 July 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A “snub” implies a conscious dismissal; a knowing exclusion; a willful act of disdainful rebuffing. And in the era of “too much TV,” the idea of Emmy voters purposefully boxing out anyone other than Donald Trump is a bit nutty. Those who don’t make the cut aren’t “snubs” so much as they’re… leftovers.

But the 2017 nomination list sure was filled with surprises, good and bad. And while we’d like to refer to the surprising exclusions as leftovers, that’s just too darn confusing when so many of the excluded came from a show called “The Leftovers.” So we’re sticking with snubs. Just know that we know the TV Academy didn’t mean anything by it.

The Snubs

“The Americans”

After breaking into the major categories for the first time last year, FX’s critically acclaimed drama was kicked right back out of the Drama Series race. »

‘Saturday Night Live,’ ‘Westworld’ Top 2017 Emmy Nominations

13 July 2017 8:44 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s “Westworld” and NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” tied for the most nominations for the 2017 Emmy Awards, earning the most with 22 each.

HBO’s drama scored with viewers, averaging 12 million per episode across all its platforms — the most ever for a freshman series on the cabler. It’s been renewed for a second season, though no premiere date has been announced.

NBC’s veteran sketch show, “SNL,” similarly enjoyed a ratings surge this season, fueled by the swirl of headlines from the election and the Trump Administration, and star turns from Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer (both were nominated). This past season ranked as its most-watched in 23 years.

Netflix’s freshman hit “Stranger Things,” meanwhile, landed 19 nominations, with noms for best drama, supporting actress Millie Bobby Brown, and supporting actor David Harbour, among others. “Feud: Bette and Joan” also nabbed 18 noms, thanks to lead actresses Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon and »

2017 Emmy Nomination Predictions: Which New Shows Will Break Through?

10 July 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There were few surprises at the 2016 Emmy Awards, with most trophies going to the expected winners. But voters had a few shockers in store: recognizing Tatiana Maslany for her lead role on “Orphan Black” and Rami Malek for his lead role on “Mr. Robot.”

That gives hope that the Academy may continue to embrace even more new, diverse programming when the Emmy nominations are unveiled on July 13. It may have taken four years for “The Americans” to finally break through, but it would be a shock if this year’s crop of worthy freshmen series didn’t get recognized by the Academy.

We’ll find out who’s officially made the cut when nominations are announced on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. Pt, but here, Variety breaks down the major contenders in all of the biggest categories.
