Emmy Awards 2018: 5 things to look out for

The 70th Emmy Awards ceremony will air on Tuesday, September 18, at 10am AEST. The awards show, held in the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, will feature your favourite TV series, dressed-up Hollywood A-lister celebrities, and promises a host of entertainment. 

The 2018 Emmy Awards are upon us. Here are the front-runners and some of the possible stories that could emerge on the night:

Game of Thrones takes the crown

There’s a lot at stake in this year; from Game of Thrones which has garnered an impressive 22 nominations, and Westworld with 21 to new surprise hits like Killing Eve. Other leading the way include:

  • Saturday Night Live – 21
  • The Handmaid’s Tale – 20
  • The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story – 18
  • Atlanta – 16

The power of Netflix

For the first time ever, streaming giant has Netflix surpassed HBO in nominations, racking up 112 compared to the cable network’s 108.

Allison Janney goes for the double

Allison Janney could score a prestigious double if she manages to win best lead actress in a comedy series for her role in CBS’s sitcom Mom, in which she plays Anna Faris’s… mom. It would come six months after she won her first Oscar for best supporting actress for playing figure skater Tonya Hardin’s mom in I, Tonya.

Sandra Oh could make history

After five unsuccessful nominations for best supporting actress in a drama for her role in Grey’s Anatomy, Sandra Oh could become the first Asian winner in the lead actress category for Killing Eve.

The Brits lead the way

Claire Foy is also up against Sandra and Elisabeth in that category, and it is the last chance to reward her for playing Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

Another Brit who’s bowing out is Wales’ own Matthew Rhys, who is tipped to win best lead actor in a drama for the final series of The Americans.

Matt Smith, another Crown star, is among the supporting actor contenders, as is countryman Joseph Fiennes for his role in The Handmaid’s Tale.
