2018 Primetime Emmy Nominations: The Americans, Westworld, Barry, & More

70th Emmy Nominations NBC

This morning the 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were announced, and as usual there were plenty of familiar faces, but also a few welcome surprises. This year, the Emmys will be broadcast live on NBC, with hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost leading the ceremony. 

Last year’s highlights included wins for Donald Glover and Elisabeth Moss, and it will be interesting to see whether or not their series, Atlanta and The Handmaid’s Tale, are repeat winners. After all, Emmy voters seem to like consistency above all else. This year's nominations certainly prove that to be true, as frequent favorites and previous winners dominated the list, with Game of Thrones appearing yet again, while The Americans was nominated for lead actor and actress, as well as Outstanding Drama, alongside some head-scratchers like Westworld and Stranger Things.
