2019 Emmy nominations revealed: Game of Thrones, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Veep, Fleabag lead the way

Barry, Veep, Pose, Killing Eve, and Russian Doll also clean up

2019 Emmy Nominations revealed

    Celebrating the best in television, the 2019 Emmy Awards takes place on Sunday, September 22nd at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The event will be broadcast live on Fox starting at 5 p.m. PT/ 8 p.m. ET. Today, the nominees for 2019 were announced by D’Arcy Carden and Ken Jeong at the Wolf Theatre at the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center.

    Leading the pack with a record-breaking 32 nominations is HBO’s Game of Thrones, whose final season dominated the entire slate. In fact, both Kit Harrington and Emilia Clarke received their first leading acting nominations after eight seasons.) Waiting for them outside the Knight’s Watch are FX’s Pose, AMC-BBC America’s Killing Eve, AMC’s Better Call Saul, and NBC’s This Is Us. One especially noticeable highlight is seeing Robin Wright nab an Outstanding Actress nom after taking over Netflix’s House of Cards.

    On the comedy front, Amazon’s second season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel conquered once again. Right behind the standup are two titans from HBO in the final season of Veep and the second season of Barry. Rounding out the rest of the categories are Amazon Prime’s Fleabag (particularly, every actress in the series), Netflix’s Russian Doll, and some surprising looks at both Showtime’s Black Monday and Pop’s Schitt’s Creek.


    Things get dicey when it comes to the limited series categories. As expected, HBO capitalized on this area with Chernobyl, Sharp Objects, and the third season of True Detective. However, it’s Netflix’s When They See Usour top pick of this year (at least so far) — that appears to be a frontrunner in many of these categories. Ava DuVernay’s historical drama series was a major hit with the voters.

    Elsewhere, both Beyoncé and Bruce Springsteen picked up nominations for their respective Netflix variety specials. The late Anthony Bourdain was honored with a nomination for Parts Unknown, as was the industry-shaking special Surviving R. Kelly. Bojack Horseman, Bob’s Burgers, and Big Mouth are all contenders in animation. And, yes, both Fyre Festival documentaries received nods, though Netflix’s received four to Hulu’s one.
