Following Thursday’s announcement of the 2018 Emmy nominations, Gold Derby’s readers are busy expressing their fiery anger and [Serena] joy over the drama categories in our TV forum. Of note, people are screaming in excitement about the nominations for Yvonne Strahovski (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), Vanessa Kirby (“The Crown”) and Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”). And they’re scratching their heads over egregious snubs for Mandy Moore (“This Is Us”), Emila Clarke (“Game of Thrones”) and Kit Harington (“Game of Thrones”). See some of their reactions below and then be sure to join the discussion to give us your thoughts.
Stretchy: Welp…i thought i was ready for the f***ery…lol. I wasn’t.
Mukund: The Handmaid’s Tale and especially Westworld really overperformed.
TVFan365: Some surprises I did not see coming was The Handmaid’s Tale whole cast getting nominated. Same for Westworld and The Crown.
Awards Fanatic: Even without writing and directing, Westworld absolutely overperformed. Yay.
Marco B.: Am I the only one who really felt relaxed only when The Americans’ name was called in Drama Series? At least some justice is done, even though I was hoping for a couple more nominations.
boss: Glad for Ed Harris!
Pulp: Damn I really thought they’d go for Emilia and Kit in lead.
Mladen: Wow, Game of Thrones’ lead actors both got ignored. Not a snub, just surprising… Glad to see both Rhys and Russell nominated, as well as Oh.
vinny: Ed Harris but No Kit Harrington…..that’s a trade off I accept lol
forwardswill: CLAIRE FOY IS AN ICON
EmmyWinner: Sandra Oh! YES YES YES!
AayaanUpadhyaya: Tatiana gets back!!!
Bee: Lmfaooo these noms were boring. I guess they just don’t like Mandy Moore at all either, huh?
VeraDoyle: Sandra Oh with no Jodie Comer. Check. More popular, more well-known, more buzzed. I was damn right.
M: The Original: Viola out of lead actress is shocking to me. They’re usually so lazy about this sort of default / perennial nominee thing.
Jays: The Mandy Moore snub is honestly ridiculous. She was easily the best actor on the show this season. How she keeps getting overlooked is unbelievable. And yes, I know that category is stacked but still. Feel sorry for her.
DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTOR
kvothe_snow: Happy for the Lannisters! Nikolaj finally getting nominated!
Alex Meyer: Justin Hartley deserved a nomination for This Is Us.
DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Stretchy: 7 nominees in Supp. Actress. Bleel, Kirby and Strahovsky all got in!
Stegeo: YES BITCH! Kirby is coming for that gold.
Macca: I’M CRYING. I just can’t do this. My one most wanted nomination happened. After Coon’s snub last year, I have been blessed with this payback. Kirby is winning.
Marcus Snowden: Strahovski AND Kirby get in! I LOVE IT! Matt Smith, though? OK, I guess.
Awards Fanatic: Yvonne, Lena, Ann and Alexis made it. My life makes sense again!
