2017 Emmy Nominations: The Biggest Snubs & Surprises

the leftovers season 3 trailer

This morning brought the cavalcade of nominations for the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, which will be handed out in September. Westworld was out in front with a whopping 22 nominations for its freshman season while other debut shows like This Is Us, as well as continuing shows like Veep and Saturday Night Live, also landed a surprising number of nods. But there are only so many slots for nominees and plenty of shows were snubbed by the Television Academy. Thankfully, it wasn’t all bad news though as there were some pleasant (sometimes goofy) surprises as well.

Below, we run through the biggest 2017 Emmy snubs and surprises. Read More »

Insecure trailer

HBO’s drama side is struggling right now, as we were reminded when Vinyl became its latest mercy-killing earlier this week. But on the comedy side, things are looking much, much sunnier. Veep is still going strong under a new showrunner; Silicon Valley is better than ever; Ballers is HBO’s biggest comedy hit since Sex and the City; and Curb Your Enthusiasm is set to return for season 9.

And its upcoming slate looks pretty interesting, too. Today we have the first trailer for Insecure, a new half-hour comedy from Awkward Black Girl creator Issa Rae. The show seems to fit right into the HBO brand while also offering something a little different. If Insecure is as fun as the promo it looks like HBO will have another hit on its hands. Watch the trailer below.  Read More »
