Nominations for The 2017 Primetime Emmys Are In

Posted on Posted in Daze Summit, DAZE SUMMIT BLOGS, Uncategorized

The ballots are in for The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards and this year is looking pretty tightly knit.

This morning, July 13th Veep actress Anna Chlumsky and actor Shemar Moore announced the 2017 Emmy nominations from Los Angeles. With Game of Thrones just missing the mark due to their seventh season premiering a tad too late – the series did not make the cut. Saturday Night Live and Westworld are running neck and neck racking up a total of 22 nominations each. Netflix’s most binge-watched show Stranger Things and FX’s Feud are right behind earning 18 nods each.

Atlanta and Black-ish are both competing for the same category of “Best Comedy.”  RuPaul’s Drag Race has also been nominated for “Outstanding reality-competition program.” And get this – Chance the Rapper has been nominated for his first Emmy under the “Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics” category. Congrats Chano; We’re rooting for you.
