Netflix had a great night at the 2017 ceremony, winning four of the eight televised categories. They swept through drama with victories for “Stranger Things” (ensemble) and Claire Foy and John Lithgow for “The Crown” (actress and actor). “Orange is the New Black” won the comedy ensemble prize for the third straight year. The individual comedy champs were Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Vee’) and William H. Macy (“Shameless”). The two movie/miniseries winners were Sarah Paulson (“The People v. O.J. Simpson”) and Bryan Cranston (“All the Way”).
All comedy nominees are eligible to return in 2018. That includes ensemble contenders “The Big Bang Theory,” “Black-ish,” “Modern Family,” “Orange is the New Black,” and “Veep.”
Lithgow will not be eligible to repeat. Drama ensemble nominees “Downton Abbey” and “Westworld” (and its acting contender Thandie Newton) will also not be back. The others — “The Crown,” “Game of Thrones,” and “Stranger Things” — will be on the 2018 ballot.
The contenders you see in each category drop-down menu are based on the best information we have at this point from studios, networks, campaigners and public relations reps. Also take note that we have assigned some borderline drama, comedy, and limited series categories for now, but those placements could change.
