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.

I hadn’t initially planned on seeing This Is Us, Dan Fogelman’s new NBC drama. The billboards and advertising plastered around Los Angeles made it look uninteresting. I’m not against television dramas, I loved Parenthood and Friday Night Lights (although the advertising for those shows didn’t interest me either, it was the buzz from friends that brought me to them). And then the This Is Us reviews came out just before its premiere teasing a big unexpected twist at the end of the pilot episode. Okay, you got me. So I watched it and I have a few thoughts on the matter. Also, Dan Fogelman has done some interviews explaining what the twist will mean for the rest of the series, so if you’re curious about that, join me.
