The Emmy Awards Nominations are now live, and there are already several fan favourites making the list of nominees. That includes Netflix’s beloved Stranger Things series, which earned a nomination in the Best Drama Series category.
As The New York Times noted, the Emmys drama and television categories are growing in 2020.
The Emmys 2020 nominations come in an interesting time for television, as new productions have found themselves halted because of ongoing coronavirus pandemic concerns.
The 72nd Emmy Awards will air on ABC in a ceremony hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, though it’s not known yet how that will work exactly.
The Daytime Emmys were recently held virtually with video acceptance speeches. Meanwhile, the BET Awards also held its 200 ceremonies virtually, with high-production performances from Chloe x Halle, Lizzo, and more.
Netflix’s “Stranger Things” accounts for a whopping 18 entries on the performer ballot, including lead actress Winona Ryder and past supporting nominees Millie Bobby Brown and David Harbour.
All of the townsfolk from Hawkins, Indiana- kids, parents, mall workers, lifeguards, are now hoping for their shot in the awards spotlight for the buzzy third season, which streamed July 4, 2019.
Season 3 takes place in the summer of 1985 and centres around an exciting new set piece: The Starcourt Mall. As Eleven (Brown) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard) grow closer together, infuriating Chief Hopper (Harbour), Joyce’s (Ryder) talks about moving out of Hawkins are interrupted when the kids notice some of the townsfolk are acting rather strangely. As the season progresses the cast splits up into several different groups, but they all come together to fight evil does in the epic finales; “The Battle of Starcourt”.
