‘Good Omens’: David Tennant, Frances McDormand and Neil Gaiman among 25 possible Emmy nominations for Amazon series

Good Omens” premiered on Amazon Prime on May 31, just in time to be eligible for the Emmys. Now the limited series has the potential for as many as 25 nominations based on what was submitted on the Emmy ballots, which were released to the public on June 10. Scroll down for its list of Emmy submissions.

Based on the cult hit 1990 novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, “Good Omens” is a six-episode apocalypse comedy about the unlikely friendship between angel Aziraphale and demon Crowley (played by Best Movie/Mini Actor contenders Michael Sheen and David Tennant), who work together to stop Armageddon as the forces of heaven and hell prepare for the war to end all wars. Sheen was nominated for an Emmy once before in the same category he’s gunning for now: he picked up a Best Movie/Mini Actor bid in 2010 for playing British Prime Minister Tony Blair in “The Special Relationship.”

This time his special relationship is with Tennant, best known for his work on “Doctor Who,” “Jessica Jones” and “Broadchurch.” He has never been nominated for a Primetime Emmy before, but he won a Daytime Emmy in 2013 for his voice-over performance in the animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.”

Speaking of voice-overs, Frances McDormand is a contender for Best Narrator for her work in this series. She’s literally the voice of God, and with two Emmys already under her belt (Best Limited Series and Best Movie/Mini Actress for “Olive Kitteridge” in 2015), she stands a good chance of a nomination in that race. After all, who could deny the Almighty — or God too for that matter?

Gaiman adapted the series himself and he has been put forward for Best Movie/Mini Writing for his collective work on all six episodes. He has no previous Emmy nominations, but he won a Hugo Award for penning an episode of “Doctor Who” in 2011, and his work has risen in popularity over the years. The Oscar-nominated animated film “Coraline” was based on his book, as are the TV shows “American Gods” and “Lucifer.”
