2018 Emmy Nominations: Our Dream Ballot

Have you heard? It’s Emmys time!

You may have noticed some of your favorite stars doing the rounds on talk shows and with panels, even though they don’t have any new episodes to promote. That’s because nominations for the 2018 Emmys are just around the corner (July 12, be sure to come back to E! News for coverage) and in the era of Peak TV there are so many talented folks and outstanding shows jockeying for the coveted nomination slots.

Gone from this year are House of CardsBetter Call SaulMaster of NoneVeep and perennial winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus and back in the running after a year away is Emmys favorite Game of Thrones.


2017 Emmys: 10 Most Talked-About Moments

You can expect all the standbys to be back again—last year’s winners The Handmaid’s Tale and its star Elisabeth Moss are sure to be on the ballot once again. FX’s Atlanta and its star and creator Donald Glover will be nominated for sure. But there are plenty of fresh and deserving new shows out there poised to break through, as well as not so newcomers who really found their stride and took things to new heights.

Without further ado, this is our dream Emmy ballot.
