'Westworld,' 'Feud,' 'This Is Us' Among 2017 Emmy Award Nominees

The Crown

The list of nominees for the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards, announced Thursday by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Reality-competition candidates were The Amazing Race, American Ninja Warrior, Project Runway, The Voice, Top Chef and RuPaul's Drag Race.

Here's a full list of the television categories. Also, Alec Baldwin, who won raves for his Donald Trump spoofs, is nominated in the best supporting actor category. The difference is that the show got a surprising three additional supporting actor nominees, with Leslie Jones, Vanessa Bayer, and Alec Baldwin all joining last year's Supporting Actress victor Kate McKinnon.

Live Crew co-founder Fresh Kid Ice has passed away
Fresh Kid was even arrested for performing songs from the album Nasty as They Wanna Be at Club Futura in Hollywood. Fresh Kid Ice aka Chris Wong Won of hardcore rap outfit 2 Live Crew has passed away.

Foy and Moss are joined in the best drama actress category by 2015 victor Viola Davis from "How To Get Away With Murder", Keri Russell of "The Americans", Evan Rachel Wood in "Westworld" and Robin Wright from "House Of Cards". That's because two perennial nominees - "Game of Thrones", which missed the eligibility window; and "Downton Abbey", which finished its run- weren't in the mix.

The 2017 Emmy Awards will be hosted by Stephen Colbert on Sunday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. ET, on CBS.

Netflix's Ahit "Stranger Things" has bagged 18 nominations including in the Best Drama and Best Supporting Actor in a Drama categories.

The German statement also said the country's security services were steering Liu's treatment rather than the doctors. Mo Zhixu, a family friend, told Efe that as far as he knew, Liu and his entourage continued to seek to leave China.

A broadcast network hasn't fielded a best drama series contender since CBS' "The Good Wife" was nominated in 2011.

The most star-studded category, as ever, is best actor in a limited series or TV movie with the field led by Robert De Niro, who anchored HBO's "The Wizard of Lies" as Ponzi scheme fraudster Bernie Madoff. Issa Rae of "Insecure" and Sarah Jessica Parker of "Divorce" were thought to be possibilities for best actress categories, but neither received a nomination.

And though Westworld lead all dramas with 22 nominations, it was tied by Saturday Night Live, which itself got 22 nominations on the comedy side. Any suggestions as to which comedies your fellow readers should give a chance or why exactly they should give the series a chance before the Emmys this September?

The nominees for best comedy series are: "Atlanta", "black-ish", "Masters of None", "Silicon Valley", "Modern Family", "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Veep". Of course there's also the pop phenomenon that was Netflix's Stranger Things.
