In the Drama race, the readers and staff of Awards Daily TV didn’t hold a controversial final season against Game of Thrones. The fantasy drama walked away with 8 nominations, leading the Drama contenders. Tied for second among the Drama categories are FX’s Pose and Amazon’s Homecoming, recovering from a weak awards season on the guild front. The biggest surprise among the Drama categories is the recognition of Sex Education in the Drama Series and Actor categories. Surprisingly, Gillian Anderson wasn’t nominated despite being the most acclaimed aspect of the series.
On the Comedy front, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel received top Comedy mentions with 5 nominations. The major players in the cast received nominations, including Marin Hinkle for supporting actress along with Alex Borstein. Following closely is ADTV favorite Schitt’s Creek with 4 nominations for series, actor, actress, and supporting actor. Comedy Central cult favorite The Other Two also surprisingly received a strong number of nominations, 3 bids for series, actor, and supporting actress.
Ava DuVernay’s Limited Series When They See Us received top honors for the Limited Series race.
