Voting for the 2018 Emmy nominations closes on Monday, July 2, so
Us Weekly has picked a few last-minute shows and actors who deserve recognition at the 70th Emmy Awards. Nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 12, and the show will take place on Monday, September 17.
The Lead Actor in a Comedy Series isn’t an easy category to take, especially this year, but that doesn’t mean Meloni doesn’t deserve it for
Happy. His commitment and dedication to the dark character alone should be enough to earn him the nod.
Powerful women and men, lies in the work place and love triangles? The writing behind
Younger is some of the funniest on TV, only made better by the talented cast that delivers it. It also combines comedy with drama and even – gasp – emotion that will most likely make you shed a tear (or 10).
Playing a villain in a way that
the audience admires isn’t an easy task. Especially, when it’s based on a horrible person like Branch Davidians leader David Koresh in Waco. While the category – Lead Actor in a Limited Series – will most likely go to Darren Criss’ portrayal of Versace’s killer Andrew Cunanan – Kitsch still deserves the recognition.
The Bold Type
Between the three leading ladies taking on a variety of issues – politics, religion, sexuality, etc. – and the supporting cast doing everything in their power to raise them up, the show encourages and teaches without being preachy. It doesn’t just make audiences feel good, but makes them feel.
The first of
Dick Wolf’s Chicago series is still the most underrated, with cocreator Derek Haas at the helm and never afraid to take away or add key players at any moment.
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation
Sure, you may roll your eyes, but there hasn’t been a reality show with the same ensemble cast that’s ever hooked an audience like this one does. The best part – it’s actually reality, and these guido and guidettes are proud to continue being themselves, no matter what.
