Emmys 2017: Lily Tomlin, Billy Eichner, Laverne Cox, RuPaul, Denis O’Hare, Wanda Sykes, BD Wong get nods
Glad to see so much LGBT representation in today’s Emmy nominations!
Love, love, love that Billy on the Street got its first nomination in the category of Best Variety Sketch Series. Yay for Billy Eichner and company.
RuPaul, coming off his first nomination and win last year, is nominated once again for Reality Show host and RuPaul’s Drag Race will compete again for Best Reality Show.
Will the show final get its first win? It certainly has the momentum.
Among those competing against RuPaul as host are former winners Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn for Project Runway.
The great Lily Tomlin is once again for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for Grace & Frankie (Jane Fonda is nominated too!).
Tituss Burgess is also a repeat nominee for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Also nominated for Westworld is bisexual actress Rachel Evan Wood in the category of Best Actress in a Drama Series.
As usual, the Guest Actor and Guest Actress categories are filled with familiar names.
This year they include Wanda Sykes (Black-ish), Denis O’Hare (This Is Us), B.D. Wong (Mr. Robot), Laverne Cox (Orange Is the New Black).
