Netflix’s most recently raved about series When They See Us is getting the recognition it deserves!
The Ava Duvernay’s Netflix series about the Central Park Five, has be a huge topic of discussion since it’s release in late May. Although many found it difficult to watch, it was a very important story to be told and it looks like the Television Academy agrees.
As far as who is leading the nominations, it’s none other than HBO’s Game of Thrones, with 32 total noms. GOT is followed by Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel with 20, HBO’s Chernobyl right behind with 19, then Saturday Night Live on it’s heels with 18, HBO’s Barry and FX’s Fosse/Verdon tied with 17 each, and then comes When They See Us with SIXTEEN. This is huge, as the series has only been out for about a month an a half and the other top noms have multiple seasons and have been running much longer. Congrats to Ava and the whole cast and crew!
If you’re interested in seeing how they make out, make sure to tune into the Emmy Awards on Sunday, Sept. 22 at 5 p.m. It will brodcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Click HERE for the full list of nominees.
