2018 Emmy Awards nominations: ‘Handmaid’s Tale,’ ‘Atlanta’ lead the pack – National

SHARE

After a pretty remarkable year for television, this year’s Emmy Awards promise to be quite the show.

On Thursday morning, the 2018 Emmy nominations were announced at the Wolf Theatre at the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center.

The Handmaid’s Tale star Samira Wiley, along with The Blacklist actor Ryan Eggold, announced the nominees.

As expected, this year’s frontrunners include dark drama The Handmaid’s Tale, based on Margaret Atwood’s novel of the same name, and Donald Glover comedy Atlanta, which raked in accolades and awards for its first season. Competition is stiffer this year because long-running espionage drama The Americans ended, and its leads, Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, may pick up the Emmys.

Here are the 2018 nominees in the major acting and TV show categories.
