‘Outlander’ Emmy submissions include Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Tobias Menzies, Duncan Lacroix and many more

Voting for the 2018 Emmy nominations started on June 11 and lasts until June 25, so how many bids could “Outlander” receive when the final contenders are announced on July 12? Quite a lot. The Emmy ballots were released at the start of voting, and the Starz romance could contend for at least 22 awards. Scroll down for the show’s full list of submissions (ballots for music categories aren’t released publicly, so they’re not included in this roundup).

The third season of “Outlander” aired in the fall of 2017 and has been entered in the race for Best Drama Series. In addition the show has eight potential acting contenders. Stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe are entered in the lead-acting races. And their on-screen daughter Sophie Skelton is in the running for a Best Drama Supporting Actress nom.

There are three men in the mix for Best Drama Supporting Actor: David Barry, Richard Rankin and Tobias Menzies, who competes as a supporting performer despite only appearing in three episodes last season. The last two acting submissions are guest stars: Duncan Lacroix for Best Drama Guest Actor for the episode “All Debts Paid,” and Lotte Verbeek for Best Drama Guest Actress for the episode “Eye of the Storm.”

“Eye of the Storm” is also up for Best Drama Directing, while “All Debts Paid” has been submitted for Best Drama Writing. But the single most submitted episode is “The Battle Joined,” the season three premiere, which will be considered for its cinematography, picture editing, sound editing and sound mixing.

Though “Outlander” earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Drama Series (2016) and lead-acting noms for Heughan and Balfe at the Critics’ Choice Awards, the Emmys have been slower to respond. Over its first two seasons it earned only three nominations, all in Creative Arts categories: Best Music Composition (2015), Best Production Design (2016) and Best Costumes (2016).

The show took an extended hiatus between seasons two and three, so it skipped the 2017 Emmys altogether. Perhaps absence will make voters’ hearts grow fonder. Check out the show’s Emmy submissions below.
