The Emmy Nominations Are Out, And Excuse Me But Where Is The One For Maya Rudolph?!?

July 13, 2017 / Posted by:

The nominations for the 69th (lol) Primetime Emmy Awards were announced early this morning by Anna Chlumsky and Shemar Moore, and I kept waiting for them to announce they would only need about 2 minutes of our time because Maya Rudolph had been nominated for everything. That didn’t happen.

If you watched the third season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, you know the highlight came from when Titus Andromedon (spoiler alert!) confessed he had eaten Miss Dionne Warwick after taking her place in a cruise ship performance of Mahogany. We learn he didn’t actually eat her (no hussy messes with Dionne). Maya Rudolph played Dionne. And she did her as Dionne with a side of Maya, which is really how all impressions should be served.

Maya’s performance of Dionne should have at least nabbed her an Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series nomination, but no! The Emmy voters snubbed her A+ performance, and now I’m humming That’s NOT What Friends Are For while wiping back a tear. But they did nominate a whole lot of other people, which are included after the cut.

Lots of people were feeling sex robots and David S. Pumpkins, apparently; both Saturday Night Live and Westworld received 22 nominations. Not surprisingly, NBC’s This Is Us got nominated a few times. Carrie Fisher received a posthumous nomination for her guest appearance in Catastrophe. RuPaul’s Drag Race FINALLY got an Outstanding Reality Competition nomination! Winona Ryder got snubbed for Stranger Things, but thankfully the show got a few nominations (like Outstanding Drama Series), which means we might get a second helping of her of many faces if they win.

Feud: Bette and Joan (or “Bet” if you’re Shemar Moore) landed a lot of nominations, including dual Outstanding Limited Series Actress nominations for Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon. And speaking of former Hot Sluts, Jackie Hoffman got one for playing Mamacita. You can read the full list of nominees here, but here is a taste.
