The most Star wars Show of the year Sure. Most innovative from a technical standpoint? Yes. The show has many momentum moments and impressive aspects (which is the theme song, for one), but one of the best theatrical series of the entire year? Amy voters who do so should jump into the Sarlac pit. (Ben Pearson)

Surprise: Shit’s Creek receiving 15 nominations for its final season

Shit creek A sleeper hit has one very definition: a character-driven, humanistic, hysterically funky Canadian comedy series that took its sweetest time finding an audience in the United States.

In addition to that prestigious comedy series, all four series heads were nominated, with Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy all landing in four acting categories.

modern Family And silicon Valley Emmy has earned lots of nominations over the years. In fact, modern Family One was Amy Darling, who was nominated eight times for Best Comedy Series, and after winning five times, did not mention many other nominations and wins in other categories. Even though each of these shows ended its final season, they did not go through with nominations in the Best Comedy Series category. for modern Family, This is due to the decline in quality in most years, and the same can be said for this silicon Valley, Which began to overtake its reception.

Surprise: What We Do The Shadows Got A Best Comedy Series Nomination

Last year, FX’s outstanding horror / comedy series What do we do in the shade Received two technical nominations. This year, it landed the best comic series and seven others, including nods for writing and directing.

What we do in the shadow Comic-Con panel

Snub: The We Do in the Shadow Cast was Shut Out

even though What do we do in the shade Emmys received a lot of love, it’s hard to forget that its incredible cast was completely off. Kaynat Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen, and Mark Prox turn in incredible performances, presenting outrageous characters who feel so real that they complement the faux documentary style of the show at every step. But perhaps that’s why he was scratched. In such a high-concept series, it is easy to heap praise on writing and directing, thinking that actors should be shuffled from just one outrageous set piece to another, when they were an important component of making every audball choice song. Huh. (Jacob Hall)

Maya Rudolph Emmys

Surprise: double guest actress nomination for Maya Rudolph

With only six slots in the Outstanding Guest Actress in the Comedy Series category, the fact that a soloist has closed those two slots is impressive. But this is Maya Rudolph, so it makes sense. She is the best. His return Shanivari Night Live Was a welcome addition as a host, and she fit into the hilarious ensemble Nice place As if she had been on board since the pilot. (Ben Pearson)

Westworld season 4

Snub: Nearly Closed from Westworld Main Categories

Unlike the eyes of Jeffrey Wright and Thandie Newton in the supporting acting categories, Amby had no love for HBO Done by This year in the main categories. Series star Evan Rachel Wood was nominated several times in the past, but was turned down this year, and since it did not receive the Best Drama nomination this year, perhaps voters are being a little wary of the show’s mystery box approach. (Ben Pearson)

Adam Driver hosted Saturday Night Live

Surprise: Adam Driver, Brad Pitt, and Eddie Murphy all nominated in the same category

Shanivari Night Live The comedy side of TV had a major performance in both guest star categories, but perhaps the most stacked side comes in guest actors in the comedy series, where Adam Diver, Eddie Murphy and Brad Pitt are all nominated for their hosting duties sketch. Show. Both Driver and Murphy had the privilege of hosting two great episodes SNL, Are therefore eligible for their nomination. But Pitt’s inclusion is outside the left field.

Brad Pitt only briefly appeared as the “host” of the remote produced Saturday Night Live at home Episodes exposed during coronovirus quarantine. He famously named Dr. Anthony Fauci played the character, something the Doctor himself suggested to the media during the height of the epidemic, but that was a lot he offered from far away to the musical guest. If anything, it was noted by members of the television academy as sticking to Donald Trump and Dr. To convince Anthony Fauci seems like a gesture. But hey, we’re down to celebrate SNLQuarantine effort, so hujh! (Ethan Anderton)

Only one drink quibby series

Snub: Big Little Lies Shut Out from Drama Series

Big lie Will not done No Forget as a pop culture phenomenon, but it seems Amy is. The second season of the acclaimed HBO drama was almost completely knocked out of the major categories, failing to receive a Best Drama nomination and only earning two supporting acting nominations for stars Laura Dern and Meryl Streep. This is a far cry from 2017, when the limited series swept the Emmys with nine nominations and six wins. But perhaps this is not surprising at all, given the mid-reception reception of the second season from critics and the troubles behind the scenes. (Hoi-Taran Bui)

Surprise: The Watchman really understood everything

Hbo Janitor Earned 26 nominations, the most by anything nominated at the 2020 Emmy Awards. This is a rare case Real best thing In fact, that year is getting the recognition it deserves. Damon Lindelof’s terrifying, hilarious, razor-sharp mix of satire, superheroics, social commentary and big sci-fi ideas were the most ambitious and influential things we’ve seen in a long, long time. No other show prepared us better, while isolating the American culture and politics of the last 30 years. What a wonderful thing a wonderful show should be. Now give it every prize. (Jacob Hall)

Snub: Not nominated for Reese Witherspoon The Morning Show and Small Fire Everywhere

Not only that Big lie Almost completely out of the Emmys, Reese Witherspoon is going home empty-handed for her roles The morning show And Small fires everywhereOne of the later Oscar winner’s most monstrous performances, which she has given to date. Yet in her costumes The morning show, Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell earned nominations for their careers in the Apple TV + series, and Kerry Washington nodded Small fires everywhere. It is a shame that Wirspoon is being ignored when she is doing the most layered and interesting work in her career. (Hoi-Taran Bui)

Good Location - D'Arcy Warden

Surprise: D’Arcy Warden nominated for good spot

D’Arcy has been an incredible part of the Warden ensemble Nice place From the beginning, but not every year, her performance went to the Emmys. For the show’s final season, we’re happy to see that she’s finally being given her due diligence as Janet, the all-knowing, supportive assistant who had the most satisfying and funny character arcs in the entire series. Fun Fact: D’rcy Carden was previously employed as Kristen Bell’s nanny, and is now an Emmy nominee. Dreams can come true. (Ethan Anderton)

Pacino Odenkirk

Snub: Al Pacino and Bob Odenkirk are not the scene

Like her better call Saul Co-star Rhea Seahorn, series head Bob Odenkirk is back in acting again this year. I haven’t caught the latest couple of seasons, but many people I know who have been doing the best job of Odenkirk for years so far, so it’s a lack of recognition. And a few years ago, it was a slam dunk that Al Pacino, previously considered one of America’s finest actors, would have received a token nomination to show on the Amazon Prime video series Hunters. But the fact that he was left in the dust is how many times he has been raised in the last decade, and how these particular categories were piled up this year. (Ben Pearson)

John Mulne and The Sack Lunch Bunch Trailer

Surprise: Some love for John Mullaney and the sack lunch bunches

John mulaini and sack lunch bunch There is a stunning parody of classic children’s television shows featuring amazing music scenes, surprisingly honest and mature comments about life and death, and Jake Gynehaal in an outrageous cameo as special guest Mr. Music. This is a delightfully funny comedy special on Netflix, which will soon be in more installments at Comedy Central, and we’re glad Emmys recognized the general stand-up special as well as its luster. If you haven’t seen it, watch it on Netflix now. (Ethan Anderton)
