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,​noms
