Germany – Fernsehserien – Samira Wiley and Ryan Eggold present Emmy nominations

Samira Wiley and Ryan Eggold

Next Thursday (July 12, 2018) at 5:30 p.m. Central European Summer Time, the time has come again: The American Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will publish the nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards . As usual, she enlisted two actors to read the nominations for the main categories on the live stream, this time choosing Samira Wiley and Ryan Eggold .

As every year, the choice is not entirely accidental, as the US network that broadcasts the primetime Emmy show each year can accommodate its own favorites – this year it’s NBC. Eggold, who most recently worked for NBC on The Blacklist and its own spin-off The Blacklist: Redemption , joins the network in the fall with the new hospital series New Amsterdam .

Samira Wiley , who made a lasting impression as Poussey Washington in Orange is the New Black , is currently starring in The Handmaid’s Tale — which is on Hulu, which NBC’s parent company Comcast owns. Last year, the series picked up eight Emmys — the most for a drama series that year. Also this year she can hope for a top place in the ranking of nominations and prizes.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will be presented in the US by NBC on Monday September 17 (NBC shows top-rated football in its ‘typical’ Sunday night slot). Colin Jost and Michael Che will then lead the show as co-hosts. Both are part of the current ensemble of “Saturday Night Live” .

The weekend before the big televised ceremony (September 8th and 9th, 2018) the winners of other categories in the so-called Creative Arts Emmys will be announced in two ceremonies.

It has not yet been confirmed who will broadcast the Emmys in German-speaking countries – the pay-TV broadcaster TNT Serie had secured the rights in recent years.

The nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmys can also be streamed from Germany on Thursday via the official Emmys website, emmys.com/​noms
