  • Atlanta only received two nominations (acting nods for Donald Glover and Brian Tyree Henry) despite universal acclaim for its final season.

  • This Is Us received no nominations for its emotional sixth and final season. Mandy Moore and Sterling K. Brown had been Emmy favorites in past years.

  • Better Call Saul’s final season nominations were limited to Bob Odenkirk, Giancarlo Esposito and guest actress Carol Burnett. No series nomination for what critics called one of TV’s best shows.
