These lucky 44 performers are now first-time Emmy acting nominees

Happy inauguration! The 2019 Emmy nominations have just been announced, and there are 44 lucky performers who are now celebrating their first-ever nomination — or if they’re really lucky, nominations — in the acting categories.

The list below does not include first-time nominees for Best Reality Host, like Marie Kondo (“Tidying Up with Marie Kondo”) and Nick Offerman (“Making It”), or Best Narrator (Juliet Stevenson for “Queens Of Mystery”), but it does include someone like Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag), whose only previous Emmy bid was in writing for “Killing Eve.”
