The 2018 Emmy Awards nominations are set to be announced Thursday, July 12 and Samira Wiley (The Handmaids Tale) and Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist) will both announce the nominees for the 2018 Emmys live from the Television Academy headquarters in North Hollywood.
We’re expecting HBO’s Game of Thrones to be back in the race for an Emmy after missing the 2017 ceremony. The Handmaid’s Tale is likely to receive a few nominations this year. Game of Thrones has won the most Emmy Awards ever for a drama series, with 38. The Handmaid’s Tale won eight Emmys in 2017, so it will be interesting to see who takes home awards this year.
There are many people pulling for Netflix’ GLOW to be nominated for best comedy series at the 2018 Emmy Awards and NBC's This is Us will likely be nominated in the best drama category.
Amazon’s 1950s comedy series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel could receive its first Emmy nomination this year.
FX’s Atlanta was nominated for best comedy series in 2017, but it was HBO’s Veep that took the honors. Donald Glover became the first black director to win an Emmy for directing a comedy series and he also won an Emmy for lead actor in a comedy series. Atlanta fans are hoping the show receives a nomination this year for the 2018 Emmy Awards.
