Did Your Show Make the Cut? Complete 2017 Emmy Nominees

It’s a good year for genre shows. According to Forbes, there was a “record number of submissions (180) for drama series, with 140 best drama actor submissions and 113 best drama actress submissions.” Premium channels and streaming services continue to shine with compelling television with Westworld, Stranger Things, House of Cards, and The Handmaid’s Tale among the most notable nominees. And yet…no Legion? No nomination for Aubrey Plaza who played the creepiest, best villain ever? Tsk tsk.

Veep star and four-time Emmy nominee Anna Chlumsky took to the stage with Criminal Minds alum and daytime Emmy winner Shemar Moore at 11:30 am EST/ 8:30 am PDT to announce the nominees for the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. The complete list is below.
