It’s that time of year again, when champagne corks are popped all over Hollywood in honor of the Television Academy’s Emmy nominations. But the true celebration cannot begin until the winners are announced live on Sept. 17. With so much high-quality TV vying for the top prizes — and some surprises among the nominees — it’s shaping up to be one of the most competitive Emmy seasons in years. Here, Variety breaks down the key races.
Taking the torch from “Game of Thrones,” which has been the most-nominated series for the past few years, is fellow HBO genre series “Westworld.” The sci-fi thriller is tied with long-running variety sketch series “Saturday Night Live” at 22 noms this year, the most of any series. More notably, it’s also one of five freshman series in the race — and that buzz may well boost it over long-in-the-tooth “House of Cards” (six noms for the Netflix drama), or even »

Caponera wrote the latest episode, “Girls Are Funny, Too,” which focused on Cassie (Ari Graynor), as she tries to break new ground in an era where women in comedy had even more obstacles in a man’s show business world. The episode was loose, poignant and funny, and highlighted the excellent cast, which includes Oscar winner Melissa Leo as Goldie, the owner of the club that the stand up comics perform in.

The challenging goal of the Emmy Awards is to reflect who we are in this moment, to single out those shows that represent the best of what’s being created across all platforms. This year’s list of Emmy nominees succeeded in some ways — highlighting risk-taking freshmen shows such as FX’s “Atlanta” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” and exceptional performances from Sterling K. Brown, Nicole Kidman, Riz Ahmed and many others.
But frustratingly, the voters also showed a stubborn reluctance to let go of the past, with nods for legacy shows long past their prime. The result is an uneven lineup, scattered with bright spots but plagued by too many noteworthy omissions.
To be fair, their job isn’t easy — sifting through the nearly 500 scripted shows produced in the past year that fed into 117 categories and a record-breaking 9,000 submissions. No one reasonably has time to watch them all. (Those of us who cover TV barely do »

According to Deadline, Rogue One star Felicity Jones has signed on to play Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Mimi Leder’s On The Basis Of Sex. The movie sounds like a biopic about Ginsburg and the sexism she has faced in her career, with the Deadline story saying it focuses on the “numerous obstacles to her fight for equal rights.” Mimi Leder was the director behind Pay It Forward and Deep Impact, but in recent years she’s focused more on TV, working on The Leftovers—which she also produced—and Shameless.
As for the real Ginsburg, she was the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court, and her judicial career has largely been about fighting for the advancement of women’s rights. Basically, she wasn’t as instrumental in blowing up the Death Star as Jones’ Jyn Erso was, but she’s no less of a badass. »
