HOLLYWOOD—Awards season is slowly inching our way people. Things kicked off on Thursday, July 13 with the nominations for the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards. The contenders were revealed by “Veep” star Anna Chlumsky and “Criminal Minds” star Shemar Moore. The question of the hour is rather Broadcast, Cable or Streaming networks would reign supreme? Well, it was Cable yet again, with the HBO series “Westworld” leading the pack with a total of 22 nominations. Also capitalizing on that love was “Saturday Night Live” which also earned 22 nominations.

Followed close behind were the Netflix hit “Stranger Things” and “FEUD: Bette and Joan” with 18 nominations. HBO led all networks with 110 nominations, while Netflix picked up 91 and NBC had a total of 60 nominations. So with “Game of Thrones” out of contention there were some new faces in the Drama series category, and a few surprises as well in the acting race.

Many speculate that Milo Ventimiglia might earn a nod for his work in “This is Us” and he certainly did people, and he’ll do battle against his co-star Sterling K. Brown who was also nominated. Also plenty of love for the series “The Handmaid’s Tale” with Elisabeth Moss, Samira Wiley, Ann Dowde all earning acting nods, so it’s nice to see a few shake-ups this year. However, still disappointed with the lack of acknowledgement for “Bates Motel,” no love for Freddie Highmore in the Lead Actor race, and what about the sensational Vera Farmiga in the Lead Actress race people?
