“Outlander” debuted in the fall of 2014 based on the popular book series by Diana Gabaldon.

Despite its obsessively loyal fan base including “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin, the show hasn’t really received much love from the Emmys. For its first season (2015) it received one Emmy nomination for Original Dramatic Score (Bear McCreary, “Sassenach”). For its second season (2016) it received two Emmy nominations: Best Costumes and Best Production Design. It lost all three.
The Golden Globes have been kinder to “Outlander,” nominating the show in 2015 for Best TV Drama Series, Best TV Drama Actress (Caitriona Balfe) and Best TV Supporting Actor (Tobias Menzies) and again nominating Balfe in 2016. The Critics’ Choice Awards nominated the show in 2014 for Most Exciting New Series and in 2016 it won Most Bingeworthy Show and was also nominated for lead stars Heughan and Balfe.
“Outlander” has a mixed track record with the guilds. It could not score another nomination by the Costume Designers Guild, with new shows “The Crown” and “Westworld” keeping our favorite time-traveler on the sidelines. But the American Society of Cinematographers made up for the show’s Emmy snub by nominating the well-deserved “Prestonpans” (Neville Kidd), as the camera work was the star of that episode.
