2017 Emmy Nominees

Netflix, HBO most nominations

Awards season is officially back, even though it feels like it just ended. The Emmy awards nominations are in, and this year there was some tough competition.

With “Game of Thrones” airing in the middle of summer, there were more opportunities for some other shows and stars to get recognized this year, like “Westworld,” “This Is Us,” and “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
“There has never been a more impressive time for television,” said Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington before introducing the presenters, “Veep” star Anna Chlumsky and “S.W.A.T” star Shemar Moore.
The 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Stephen Colbert, will air live on CBS Sunday, September 17, from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
