Emmy Nominations Thread

If you watch TV and care about awards shows, then today is your lucky day, because the Emmy Nominations have been announced wheeeeeeeeeee!

The Guardian has a complete list, and please feel welcome to discuss ALL OF THE SHOWS AND ALL OF THE PEOPLE in comments — which shows you like, which shows you don't like, whom you're happy to see nominated, who should have been nominated but wasn't, your feelings about the diversity of the nominees, and everything else!

I haven't really had time to delve deeply into the nominations yet, but here are a few quick impressions:

OMGGGGGGG SANDRA OH GIVE HER EVERYTHING, PLEASE AND THANK YOU. Oh is nominated for Killing Eve, and she is the first Asian woman ever nominated for lead actress in a dramatic series, so CONGRATULATIONS SANDRA OH YOU DESERVE IT I LOVE YOU.

I am so happy that Sterling Brown was nominated for This Is Us and also for his guest spot on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

I am so sad that literally not a single regular cast member from Brooklyn Nine-Nine was nominated. Boo!

I am happy that Ted Danson was nominated for The Good Place, but I am also sad and not just a little miffed that he was the only regular cast member nominated (Maya Rudolph was also nominated for her guest spot — yay!), especially since he is the only white dude. Where are the nominations for Kristen Bell, Jameela Jamil, D'Arcy Carden, William Jackson Harper, and Manny Jacinto?! THEY ARE ALL TERRIFIC, TOO! AHHHHHH!

Yay, Tracee Ellis Ross was nominated! But against Lily Tomlin! And Rachel Brosnahan! And Issa Rae! LOOK AT THAT CATEGORY! Good grief.

There are just a lot of people I like as human beings (as far as anyone can tell from a distance) on this year's list of nominees! John Legend! Viola Davis! Laura Dern! Jesse Plemons! Regina King! Peter Dinklage! Edie Falco! Aidy Bryant! Kate McKinnon! Leslie Jones! Merritt Wever! SARAH PAULSONNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!

I don't envy the judges. Just give everyone a prize.
