2017 Emmy Nominations: ‘Westworld’, ‘SNL’ Hit New Highs

The 69th Primetime Emmy Award were all about comedy and robots this year, taking a break from its usual love of dragons and mix-matched families.

NBC’s Saturday Night Live and HBO’s sci-fier Westworld walking away with 22 noms apiece, the most nods of any show. The sketch show owes big props to its recent turn to political-heavy comedy, such as its skits featuring Alec Baldwin’s Trump and Melissa McCartney’s Sean Spicer, who turned the show from Toonces the driving cat territory into biting commentary about modern times.

Netflix’s Stranger Things and FX’s miniseries Feud each nabbed 17 noms a piece, including acting noms for femme fatales Millie Bobby Brown, Shannon Purser, Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon.

Hulu’s breakout hit Handmaid’s Tale scored 13 noms and one of its stars, Ann Dowd became a double nominee for pulling double-duty on both the streaming service drama and HBO’s The Leftovers.

HBO’s former heavy-hitter Game of Thrones had to sit this one out as the long stall time between seasons meant that the show wasn’t eligible for any kudos.
