Donald Glover, Issa Rae, & More Dominate 2018 Emmy Nominations

Movies & TV

The 2018 Emmy nominations are in, and there a lot of familiar faces on the roster this year. Donald Glover, Issa Rae, Sterling K. Brown, and more have reportedly been nominated.

Issa Rae reportedly nabbed the nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in her very own Insecure series on HBO. Donald Glover also earned a nomination for the opposite gender title for his work in FX’s Atlanta.

Moving into the drama category, Sterling K. Brown and Thandie Newton earned noms for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for their roles in This Is Us and Westworld respectively. Sandra Oh  also became the first Asian woman to receive a nod for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series in the Emmys history for Killing Eve.

Additionally, John Legend scored his very first nomination for his role in NBC’s “Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert.” If he wins, he will have successfully achieved an EGOT – the achievement winning all four of the major American entertainment awards: Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony.

The 70th annual Emmy Awards will be held in Los Angeles on Sept. 17. Check out the entire nominations list below.
