2019 Primetime Emmy Award Nominations: True Detective, Chernobyl & More

2019 Primetime Emmy Awards

This morning saw the announcement of the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards nominees, with a list that includes a number of new shows and plenty of returning favorites. Emmy voters have a lot to consider this year, as perennial winners Veep and Game of Thrones recently wrapped up their respective series. In the past, voters have typically been committed to repeatedly honoring certain high-performing series and performers. As such, it was no surprise to see Julia Louis Dreyfus nominated once again for her role as Selina Meyer in HBO's frequent Emmy nominee/winner.

It is, however, always nice to see newcomers Chernobyl, Fleabag, Russian Doll and more making the rounds.
