The nominations for the 69th Emmy Awards were full of buzzy genre hits which all deserved attention for various reasons. But the undisputed winner of all them tonight was Handmaid’s Tale which took home five awards, including one for star Elisabeth Moss and for Best Drama.
In 2017, everyone is really loving genre. The 69th annual Emmy Nominees were just announced and HBO’s Westworld led all scripted television with 22 total nominations. Close behind it was Netflix’s Stranger Things with 18 nominations, and Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, which got 13. All three will compete for Best Drama…
Before the Emmy winners are announced tonight and they grasp their shiny trophy on stage in front of millions, each one of those statuettes began as a pool of pure virgin metal, liquified at 700 degrees. That's hot.
Last night's Emmy awards left a lot of genre fans feeling disappointed: Lost was snubbed left and right, along with True Blood and a few others. But there were also some amazing geek shout-outs.
Finally, a good reason to watch tonight's Emmy Awards: Host Neil Patrick Harris is rumored to be performing a brand new "Dr. Horrible-themed" song in the middle of the ceremony. Here's hoping for a Felicia Day appearance. [Entertainment Weekly]
