The 2018 Emmy nominations are in and… well, there are some things to cheer, and some things to hiss at. As predicted, “Atlanta” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” will duke it out in the comedy race, while “Game of Thrones” returned to a dominant 22 nominations on the drama side. But where was “Twin Peaks”? Or “Howards End”? Or “The Terror”?
Meanwhile, it was a historic day for Netflix, which surpassed HBO and became the new nomination leader — ending HBO’s 17-year streak on top. IndieWire spent Thursday going through this year’s nods, and covered it extensively from almost every angle.
Just like last year, IndieWire’s Screen Talk podcast will launch a weekly Emmy edition over the next few months to highlight the most interesting storylines and races. IndieWire editor-at-large Anne Thompson and executive editor Michael Schneider will banter each week, and also bring on the occasional guest. Here’s Episode 6 for 2018, also featuring IndieWire TV critic Ben Travers.
Here’s a roundup of some of IndieWire’s nomination coverage:
