The 2018 Emmy nominations are upon us. On Thursday, July 12, the 176 nominees for the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards were announced by The Handmaid’s Tale actress Samira Wiley and actor Ryan Eggold. 

The Emmys focus their recognition exclusively on television, with the major awards divided into separate categories for comedy and drama.

As expected, in the drama categories, the 2018 nominations included several nods for 2017’s big winner, The Handmaid’s Tale. As a freshman series, the grim, dystopian adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s novel took home several awards in 2017, including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Writing in a Drama series, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Ann Dowd, and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Elisabeth Moss, who won an Emmy for the first time after seven previous nominations.

The show, which just finished its second season on Hulu, is expected to easily make the cut in the Outstanding Drama Series race. But its chances of winning the title for a second year in a row will depend largely on Emmy voters’ memory of and feelings about Game of Thrones season seven; after winning Outstanding Drama in 2016 for its sixth season, the HBO powerhouse drama was not eligible for the 2017 Emmys because season seven didn’t air within the eligibility period. As Game of Thrones makes its grand return to the Emmys at the 2018 awards, it will almost certainly be a front-runner.

(Photo by Stuart Ramson/BBC AMERICA via Invision/AP Images) On the comedy side, there will be at least two new winners in two major categories. The final season of the reigning champ Veep has been delayed because its star, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, was undergoing treatment for cancer (filming is expected to resume next month). Veep has won Outstanding Comedy Series three years in a row, while Dreyfus has swept Lead Actress in a Comedy Series since 2012.

One new contender for the Outstanding Comedy Series throne may be the Golden Globe-winning The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The acclaimed Amazon series from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has been praised for its style and joy and it stars Rachel Brosnahan, who earlier this year won the Golden Globe for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy and the Critics’ Choice award for Best Actress in a Television Comedy.

Posting on his website, Martin specified that each concept under development is for a prequel, not a sequel. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, File) Maisel will likely be going up against the second season of Donald Glover’s Atlanta, which Vox critic at large Todd VanDerWerff has already deemed one of the best shows of this year. The first season of the FX series was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series last year, and while it predictably lost the crown to Veep, Glover — who both created the series and stars in it — won the Emmy for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. The 2018 comedy field is also expected to include HBO’s buzzy upstart Barry and the second season of the Netflix wrestling comedy Glow.
