5 titles that stirred conversations around the 75th Emmy Nominations

The Emmy Awards is one of the most sought-after nights on national television. As fans gear up for this star-studded event, there’s one more affair that keeps them on the edge of their seats - the ‘Nominations’. When Yvette Nicole Brown and Frank Scherma took center stage on 12th July to unveil the prestigious nominations for the 75th Emmy Awards, they sure did stir up some piping hot ‘tea’ for netizens and twitterati alike. So as you get ready for this glamorous evening set to stream LIVE exclusively on Lionsgate Play on 19th September, here are the snubs and ‘you go bud’ titles from the 75th Emmy Award Nominations

The curious case of Jeffrey Dahmer - controversy always! Evan Peter starrer ‘Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’ earned a whopping 13 nominations this year at the Emmy’s. This has seemingly created a massive stir amongst audiences across. In a statement to The Wrap, Thomas Jacobson - lawyer to the victims said, “By celebrating and rewarding these portrayals, there is a risk of normalizing the actions of individuals like Dahmer, potentially desensitizing audiences to the real-life consequences of violence.” While some fans believe credit is due, others think profiting off of trauma is unfair. So the question remains - How far is too far?

Sima Auntie takes the cake! - hmm, still thinking why!

Indian Matchmaking has been the talk of the town ever since its first season in 2020. With Sima from Mumbai having the internet in a chokehold, through countless memes and hilarious tweets the show has landed an Emmy Nomination for the second time. True to her character, Sima Auntie shared a heartfelt message on hearing about the nomination, “The recognition is an answer to all the people who were saying negative things about the show. Negative mein bhi maza hai, at least show hit ho raha hai.” Now it is left to see if India will take this award home.

Success(ion) Indeed - SO deserving!

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Succession dominated the 75th Emmy Nominees this year. Sitting on the throne with 27 nods of acknowledgement its way, the two-time Best Drama Winner ruled with its last season. From Outstanding Drama Series to Lead Actor, the show has this award season tucked neatly under its thumb. Fans can’t contain their excitement as they wait to see their favorite stars take home the gold. 

No curtsy for the Prince and his Princess? After baring their heart and soul for the tell-all docuseries, ‘Harry & Meghan’, this duo has been royally dismissed. A sureshot to earning at least an nomination at this year’s Emmy Awards, the viewership for this so-called confession from the former Prince and Princess of Wales simply didn’t make the cut. Royal expert, Ingrid Seward weighed in on the couple’s devastation saying, “Meghan and Harry will concentrate in this and make it a positive, however irritated they might be not to be in the Emmy nominations.” It is left to see whether or not they come back stronger than a 90s trend. 

Only ‘Snubs’ in the Building 

One of the biggest Emmy snubs this year was undoubtedly Selena Gomez and Steven Martin losing out on nominations for the fan-favorite series ‘Only Murders in the Building’. While Martin Short received well-deserved recognition for Lead Actor in a Comedy Role, his co-stars were given little to no acknowledgement. So, will the Selenators hold a grudge or is all going to be forgiven?

Surprise Surprise!

The 75th Emmy Nominations had some expected wins, a few snubs but also a whole lot of surprises. From Ted Lasso and Jury Duty leading the comedy nominations to Obi-Wan-Kenobi proving that Star Wars is omnipresent, a flurry of wildcards had fans tingling with excitement. Kathryn Hahn and Kumail Nanjiani also made the list for unexpected nominees this year.
