The Primetime EMMY nominations are in! And several of your faves scooped up nods. See the YBF list inside…
YBF stars won BIG at the EMMYs last year. And they’re looking to do the same thing this year.
The 69th Primetime EMMY Awards nominations were announced today and "S.W.A.T." star Shemar Moore was tapped to do the honors of reading the nominations, alongside "Veep" star Anna Chlumsky at the Saban Media Center in North Hollywood.
“This Is Us” seems to be this year’s favorite. The hit NBC series scooped up a total of 11 nominations, including Best Drama and Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series. Rightfully so. This show keeps our emotions all over the place.
Lead star Sterling K. Brownwon his first Primetime EMMY last year. Can he do it again? We’re keeping our fingers crossed. He’s in the running for Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series -- for his role as Randall Pearson -- and he’ll be going up against his co-star Milo Ventimiglia in the category.
Sterling's co-star Ron Cephas Jones, who plays his father on the show, also copped a nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
Third time’s a charm? We hope so!
Regina King has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her work on ABC’s “American Crime.” She’ll be gunning for her THIRD straight EMMY award. We’re already claiming another win for this YBF chick.
The “black•ish” parents made the list again!
Anothony Anderson nabbed a nomination for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and he’ll go up against Donald Glover (“Atlanta”). Meanwhile, his co-star Tracee Ellis Ross is in the running for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.
“black•ish” and “Atlanta” have been nominated in the Outstanding Comedy Series category.
“How To Get Away With Murder” star Viola Davis is up for her 2nd EMMY Award after nabbing one in 2015. She’s nominated in the Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series category.
“OITNB” stars Uzo Aduba and Samira Wiley, along with “Westworld” star Thandie Newton will duke it out in the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category.
