The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will air on September 17th, 2018. That means you have plenty of time to catch up on all of the shows and limited series you may have missed out on this year. Michael Che and Collin Jost are going to host the ceremony, which should be interesting.
On July 12th, 2018, we found out who and what was nominated for a prestigious Emmy Award. I’m here to fill you in on all of the gritty details— who was nominated? Did they deserve to be nominated? Who is probably going to win? There’s a lot to cover, so let’s jump right in, shall we? First up, the best drama series nominees:
The Handmaid’s Tale

This super spooky dystopian drama finished up its second season in 2018. Based on Margaret Atwood’s most famous novel, it follows June or “Offred,” a woman who is forced to become a surrogate for an infertile couple after America falls to a religious totalitarian regime.
This show is not an easy watch, but it’s definitely a deeply moving one. In 2018, it is suddenly more potent than ever. It’s not my pic for drama series of the year (even though it won last year), but I definitely think it deserves the nomination. Elisabeth Moss is nominated for best actress in a drama series again this year for her work on this show.
