Award ceremonies are usually a hotbed of resentment when nominations are announced. This year was a mix of joy and anger when the Emmys announced. I mean, can you blame most of us? No nominations for Small Axe except for cinematography. No Lead Actor/Actress nominations or Supporting for The Underground Railroad. But a nomination for Emily in Paris?! Really? See what happens when you hate watch.
Finally! Plus Size Emmy Nomination Representation
Still there’s more representation than the previous year. And come through Lovecraft Country with 18 noms. Among diverse shows and noms, plus-sized actresses and actors showed up and will definitely show out come red carpet time!
Lead Actor in a Comedy Series & Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series—Double Nom!!
Kenan Thompson (“Kenan”)
Kenan Thompson (“Saturday Night Live”)
Kenan Thompson got double nods for lead actor in a comedy series for his self-titled show, Kenan, and supporting actor in a comedy series for SNL! Did I watch the music video “All I Want” by 702 from the Good Burger soundtrack? Yes, yes I did. Kenan has come so far in his career. A total of 6 nominations over the years and 1 win! If he wins this year it will be for acting. The win he has is for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics in 2018.
Lead Actress in a Comedy Series & Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series
Aidy Bryant (“Shrill”)
Aidy Bryant (“Saturday Night Live”)
Aidy Bryant also got double noms for best lead actress in a comedy series for Shrill and supporting actress in a comedy series for SNL. She may celebrate the nominations by “pacing around her apartment” but she will strut on the red carpet!
Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
Jeremy Swift (“Ted Lasso”)
Jeremy Swift is English adorable and this is his first ever Emmy nomination. Who doesn’t melt over an accent? And have you seen him when he’s rocking scruff?
Guest Actress in a Comedy Series
Yvette Nicole Brown (“A Black Lady Sketch Show”)
Yvette Nicole Brown got a nomination for guest actress in a comedy series for A Black Lady Sketch Show. If you haven’t watched season 2, it’s summer and a panini so stream asap. Blip-blippety?
Host For a Reality or Competition Program
Nicole Byer (“Nailed It!”)
Nicole Byer, “part-time host, full-time goddess”, received a nomination for host for a reality or competition for the cake-tastrophy baking competition show Nailed It! My favorite episode is still season 4’s “Howdy, Failure!” episode. Nicole dazzled in that gorgeous off-the-shoulder soft pink top with green skirt. Plus, those reactions from her, Jacques and Adam Scott as they sample the cakes that were drowned in root beer extract was priceless. That is repeated viewing right there!
Her style is phenomenal!
How excited are you to see what she wears for the Emmys? How excited are you for all of them? Any guesses to what style they’ll wear?
