The Twilight Zone Emmy Eligibility

CBS All Access isn’t exactly overflowing with must-see content, with Star Trek Discovery and The Good Fight being the only two original hits in their library. But since The Twilight Zone reboot came along, plenty more people have been flocking to the streaming subscription service, and the show is bound to end up with some Emmy nominations later this year, but not in the category you might think.

Unlike other anthology shows that have landed accolades from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, such as American Horror Story or Fargo, The Twilight Zone won’t be competing in the category for Outstanding Limited Series.

Us and Twilight Zone Comparison

“The past is past,” a severely stressed-out man says to himself, staring in a cramped bathroom mirror. “The past….is past.” In spite of being encouraged to say this mantra by his therapist as a way to calm himself, it doesn’t work.

The notion of the past hovering over you as an inescapable force is a theme that runs rampant in a new film and a new TV show, both of which share the same creative mind: Jordan Peele.

First, there’s his gripping new horror film Us, and then there’s the revival of The Twilight Zone, on which he serves as host and executive producer. Though the opening mantra, “The past is past”, comes from one of the new Twilight Zone episodes, it’s just as applicable to what happens in Us.

This post contains major spoilers for Us and minor spoilers for the first several episodes of The Twilight Zone.
