71st Emmy Awards Nominations Announced

-

The 71st Emmy Awards nominations were announced today by the Television Academy, presenting the widest array of first-time performer nominees since 2011.

Television Academy Chairman and CEO Frank Scherma hosted the announcement, with presenters Ken Jeong (The Masked Singer) and D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place). New faces and a fresh group of shows were prominently recognized in the nominations, together with acclaimed, veteran television programs.

HBO’s Game of Thrones secured 32 nominations, the most for any program in a single season, beating a 25-year standing record set by NYPD Blue. Over its eight-season run, the series has received a total of 161 nominations.

Game of Thrones was followed by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (20), Chernobyl (19), Saturday Night Live (18), Barry (17), Fosse/Verdon (17) and When They See Us (16). In addition, overall cast contributions were acknowledged with Game of Thrones‘ 10 nominations across five performer categories, and eight nominations across four performer categories for When They See Us.

“It’s great to see such an array of new talent honored for their excellent work,” said Scherma. “While our voting membership recognized several returning, acclaimed programs, there are many Emmy categories that feature fresh shows and emerging talents, celebrating the opportunity and continued creative growth offered by television.”




Of this year’s eight nominees for Outstanding Drama Series, five were new to the category. Newcomers, spread across a variety of distribution platforms, include Bodyguard, Killing Eve, Ozark, Pose and Succession. Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones and This Is Us return to the category.

Among this year’s seven Outstanding Comedy Series nominees, there are four first timers representing a wide range of storytelling. Fleabag, The Good Place and Schitt’s Creek, along with freshman show Russian Doll, join returning hits Barry, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Veep.

Leading the nominations in totals by platform were HBO (137), Netflix (117), and NBC (58).

The 71st Emmy Awards will air live coast-to-coast from the Microsoft Theater at L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 22 (8:00-11:00 PM ET live/5:00-8:00 PM PT live) on FOX. Don Mischer Productions and Done+Dusted will co-produce the telecast.
