“And the winner is…” Well, we won’t know that until Sunday, September 20, when the Emmy Awards are telecast, but we do know who (and what) has been nominated.
BBC America’s Killing Eve has come in strong with eight nominations. The series as a whole has landed in the Outstanding Drama Series category, along with both Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer being nominated for Outstanding Actress and Fiona Shaw for Outstanding Supporting Actress.
This is the third year in a row that Oh has been nominated for her gripping performance as Eve Polastri in the groundbreaking series. This marks the second nomination in a row for Comer, who took home the Emmy last year for her portrayal of everyone’s favorite psychopath Villanelle.
KE has also been recognized for Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series, Outstanding Contemporary Costumes, Outstanding Music Supervision and Outstanding Production Design. That is a lot of standing out across the board.
In other BBC America/Emmy news, Sir David Attenborough has been nominated for Outstanding Narrator for his work on Seven Worlds, One Planet. You can also look for Doctor Who: The Runaway in the Outstanding Derivative Interactive Program.
We’d like to give a shout out to the amazing work being done at our sister company AMC, whose series Better Call Saul has received eight nods, including but not limited to: Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, Outstanding Supporting Actor (Giancario Esposito as Gus Fring).
