It’s The Handmaids vs. The Pearsons!
The dust is only beginning to settle from this morning’s Emmy nominations announcement, but Team TVLine is already looking ahead to the Sept. 17 ceremony — specifically the Outstanding Drama Series duel between NBC’s This Is Us and Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale. In the latest edition of the TVLine Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Michael Ausiello, Editor-at-Large Matt Mitovich, Executive Editor Kim Roots and Senior Digital Editor Andy Swift weigh in which of the two breakout dramas is the bigger frontrunner heading into the CBS-televised kudoscast.
Other topics raised and hashed out in the 20-minute discussion: Why the hell was HBO’s The Leftovers snubbed again? Should SNL performers get their own category? Has the Emmy ship sailed on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend? And who’s the most gleeful nominee — Stranger Things‘ Barb or Billy on the Street?
