Anti-Trump Sentiment Scores Huge Emmy Nominations

Anti-Trump Sentiment Scores Huge Emmy Nominations”

Long-running comedy sketch show "Saturday Night Live" was showered with love by the Television Academy Thursday after a year of mercilessly spoofing President Donald Trump - receiving 22 Emmy nominations. "Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks", the tweet-happy chief executive opined a month before the election. Among those in the "been there, done that" category: Jeffrey Tambor (who's won twice for "Transparent"); Robin Wright and "House of Cards"; Matthew Rhys and Kerry Russell ("The Americans"); and Lily Tomlin ("Grace and Frankie") - which flies so far under the radar it's in danger of being grounded. "Bette and Joan" have the next most nominations with 18, followed by "Veep" with 17.

There are also two out actors competing in the Guest Actress in a Drama Series category: Laverne Cox for her performance in Orange is the New Black and Shannon Purser for Stranger Things.

Instead, cable and streaming have dominated the field, and could again.

This year's Emmy Awards will air September 17 on CBS with host Stephen Colbert. It faces AMC's "Better Call Saul", Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", and a trio of Netflix series, "House of Cards", "The Crown", and "Stranger Things".

The only broadcast network in the mix is NBC, with a nomination for "This is Us" - notable, given that the last time a broadcast network competed in this category was in 2011, for CBS's "The Good Wife".

Some hotly-tipped shows missed out on widely-expected nods, however, including "Homeland" and "Mr. Robot", which were shut out of the best drama category.

Riz Ahmed, Ewan McGregor, Geoffrey Rush and John Turturro were also nominated, alongside Benedict Cumberbatch. How else can one explain the egregious snubs of FX's The Americans and Amazon's Transparent in favor of two exhausted shows, the aforementioned House of Cards and ABC's Modern Family, in the drama and comedy series categories, respectively, as well as nearly across-the-board neglect of the acclaimed final season of HBO's The Leftovers and Insecure, FX's Legion and Starz's American Gods?

Here's your guide to where to watch each of the year's nominees online so you can brush up on the latest episodes of each series just in time for the 69th Annual Emmys!
