“The Handmaid’s Tale” star Samira Wiley and “New Amsterdam” star “New Amsterdam” star Ryan Eggold revealed this season’s nominees on Thursday. The actors, along with Television Academy chairman and CEO Hayma Washington and president and CEO Maury McIntyre, made the announcement from the Wolf Theatre at the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center.
