LIVE UPDATES: Here Are The 2018 Emmy Nominations

Blessed be the 2018 Emmy nominations. 

“The Handmaid’s Tale” star Samira Wiley and “The Blacklist” actor Ryan Eggold jointly announced the nominees for the the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, which will take place on Sept. 17, from the Wolf Theatre at Saban Media Center Television Academy on Thursday morning. 

This year “Saturday Night Live” “Weekend Update” anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che will be taking over hosting duties from Stephen Colbert, becoming the first cast members to do so since Eddie Murphy in 1983. The show will air on NBC for the first time since 2014. 

“The Handmaid’s Tale” was the big winner at last year’s ceremony, nabbing trophies in major categories, including Best Drama Series, Lead Actress, Supporting Actress and more. But HBO’s fantasy juggernaut “Game Of Thrones,” which has previously picked up multiple Best Drama Series awards, could disrupt its winning streak after a delayed premiere made the series ineligible to compete in 2017.  

Newcomers like BBC’s “Killing Eve,” HBO’s “Barry” and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” could also be in contention for Emmys gold with debut seasons that have already garnered tremendous buzz. 

And never count out returning favorites like the Donald Glover-helmed “Atlanta” or NBC’s tearjerker “This Is Us,” which have both seen Emmys love in the past.
