“Stranger Things” Grabs 18 Emmy Nominations

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.

    As much as I love ST, I can’t stand the idea that it got 18 fucking nominations when shows like The Leftovers got one. And I don’t get it how is it possible because ST was released before the deadline for the Emmys began.

      Oh no! Only one nomination of the Leftovers! Boo hoo. The show magically sucks now because it didn’t get in the running for a bunch more little statues.

    even though i think award shows like the Emmy’s and the Oscar’s are silly (especially after Lady Gaga won best actress for American Horror Story…that was RIDICULOUS) i’m thrilled for STRANGER THINGS for the noms! very VERY well deserved. and a special CONGRATS to awesome Shannon Purser/Barb! 🙂

    • I find it ridiculous Gaga can win an emmy yet Winona gets the shit end of the stick in the nominations here, (unless she is nominated and it is not reported here) But i was really hoping she would get a nom, I enjoyed her the most out of all the characters.

        exactly! also (if i’m not mistaken) Gaga was nominated (and won) for an Emmy and yet none of the other more deserving AHS cast (Sarah Paulson, etc.) got nom’s or wins?!! regarding Winona..she was SO good in STRANGER THINGS! i can’t wait for season 2!

    So beyond overrated, it’s amazing what an 80’s font can do.
