Here Are Your 2018 Emmy Nominations


The incredible Samira Wiley and The Blacklist’s Ryan Eggold announced the 2018 Emmy nominations on Thursday morning. With it, Sandra Oh became the first Asian woman ever to be nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her work on Killing Eve.

Issa Rae also bagged her first Emmy nomination for Insecure, and Zazie Beetz is another first time nominee for Atlanta.

Other highlights: Game of Thrones had the most nominations across all categories, followed closely by Saturday Night Live and Westworld. And the cast of The Handmaid’s Tale did well—Elisabeth Moss, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd, Samira Wiley, Yvonne Strahovski, and Joseph Fiennes are all nominated for their work on the show.
