2018 Emmy Awards Nominations Announced: Read The Full List

It's that time of year again, when all of TV's For Your Consideration efforts are either realized or revealed to have been useless. That's right, it's the day when all the big nominations are announced for the upcoming Primetime Emmy Awards, which will be the TV Academy's 70th year parceling out the small screen's highest honors. This year, The Handmaid's Tale star Samira Wiley and New Amsterdam's Ryan Eggold were tapped to announce the nominations, in an event taking place at the Academy's Saban Media Center. Aside for an accidental omission of a nomination for one of TV's biggest shows, the announcements went well, although those who were snubbed might disagree.
