The first season of “Stranger Things,“ which premiered on Netflix just about one year ago, was one of the best seasons of a television show that I have ever seen in my entire life. No hyperbole. I mean it. The show, despite only being around one year, already feels as iconic as an actual export of the decade it’s set in and inspired by, which is a truly remarkable achievement.
I feel nostalgia for “Stranger Things.” It came out last year. What? HOW?!
The nominations for the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, airing on September 17, 2017, were just announced today; given how good that first season was, it should come as no surprise that “Stranger Things” is nominated for a handful of them this year.
“Stranger Things” was nominated for Best Drama Series, with David Harbour nabbing a Best Supporting Actor nomination and Millie Bobby Brown getting one for Best Supporting Actress. Surprisingly, Shannon Purser was even nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress thanks to her fan favorite performance as the ill-fated Barb!
The Duffer Brothers were nominated for Outstanding Directing and Writing, and the show was also nominated in several other categories. They’re all listed below.
