Surprise: Big Little Lies and Stranger Things made the cut—and so did Martha Stewart.


Veep’s Anna Chlumsky and the omnipresent Shemar Moore announced the Emmy nominations on Thursday morning at an event in North Hollywood. As expected, the Television Academy rewarded popular new shows like Big Little Lies, Westworld and This Is Us, as well as Stranger Things, among the regular favorites like Veep.

Robin Wright picked up a nomination for House of Cards in the Drama Actress category, which also includes Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder) and Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale). Sterling K. Brown landed a nom for Drama Actor for his role in the emotionally confounding drama This Is Us.

Other highlights: Atlanta and Black-ish competing for Comedy Series, and Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg being nominated as co-hosts for their cooking show Potluck Dinner Party. Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown finds herself in impressive company with Thandie Newton (Westworld) and Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale) in the category for Supporting Actress in a Drama.

The Emmys will be hosted this year by Stephen Colbert and airs live on September 17. Below are nominations in the major categories.

The only thing we can be certain of in these uncertain times is that Julia Louis-Dreyfuss will once again (deservingly) win for Best Actress in a comedy.
