Here Are the 2018 Emmy Nominations

After a year off, Game of Thrones returns to the Emmys for a particularly competitive best drama race. HBO’s marquee drama is eligible once again for Emmys gold and will round out a packed category that could include The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things and This Is Us. The Handmaid’s Tale‘s Samira Wiley and The Blacklist’s Ryan Eggold announced the Emmy nominations on Thursday, including those in the competitive drama category.

With Veep on a production break, the comedy category is wide-open. Donald Glover’s acclaimed Atlanta looks to be the frontrunner, though Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a nostalgic series about a female comedian in the 1950s, could ride its Golden Globes wins to victory.

In the acting categories, Sandra Oh has the chance to make history by becoming the first Asian actor to be nominated in the Best Actress category for her turn as an obsessed detective BBC America’s Killing Eve. She’ll likely compete against two women vying for their final chance at Emmys gold in their respective series: Claire Foy, who will pass on the role of Queen Elizabeth II to Olivia Colman for The Crown’s third season, and Keri Russell, the long-overlooked star of critical darling The Americans.
