Happy Thursday all! The Emmy Award nominations were announced last week, and I can’t wait til September 17th to see who wins. Okay, I actually also can’t wait because that’s the day the baby is due, but hopefully while I’m in labor, I can watch the show and see these faves of my take home awards!
Outstanding Choreography: Travis Wall
I distinctly remember loving him when he was a contestant on So You Think You Can Dance, but as a choreographer, I love him all the more. He puts so much feeling and emotion into each dance, and I have been brought to tears more than once by his choreography.
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series: Sterling K. Brown
Randall from This is Us is one of my absolute favorite characters on television right now. I swear that I cried for HOURS after watching the episode where he has an anxiety attack because his performance was so real and raw. If he doesn’t win, I may throw something at the television.
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series: Ty Burrell
Honestly, who doesn’t love Phil Dunphy? I could watch episodes of Modern Family over and over just to hear his fabulous one-liners. He is hilarious in every single episode.
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series: Samira Wiley
I used to be a big fan of Samira Wiley when I watched Orange is the New Black, but she blew me away in The Handmaid’s Tale. I am so excited to see what happens to her in Season 2 after all of her awesome exploits in Season 1.
Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series: Lin-Manuel Miranda
Because I definitely watched his opening over and over again…
Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series: Alexis Bledel
Man, this girl can do SO much more than Rory Gilmore. After watching the first couple of Handmaid’s Tale episodes, I tweeted that Alexis needed an Emmy nom FOR SURE. And sure enough, she got it. Will I throw things if she doesn’t win? Probably not outwardly, but I will be SORELY disappointed because she totally deserves it.
Do you have any Emmy predictions?
