2018 Emmy Nomination List

The Emmys are here again! And, another round of deserving TV shows are about to be rewarded for their hard work.  👏.  

This year, Game of Thrones takes the lead with 21 nominations, followed by Saturday Night Live and Westworld, with 21 noms each. I’m very excited for Westworld (and HBO by extension) I feel the show hasn’t yet gotten the kind of accolade it deserves and with GOT ending next year, this might just be the megahit HBO has been looking for.
