This year’s Emmy nominations, announced Thursday, appear to have won over some of the TV Academy’s harshest critics. The Hollywood Reporter’s Tim Goodman, who has had his beefs with the Emmys in the past, says the Academy got it right this year.
“2016 will go down as the year that the Television Academy did the one thing it absolutely had to do, which was snatch back its relevance,” Goodman writes, adding: “The results Thursday went well beyond expectations for a lot of critics and the adjustments the Television Academy made shouldn’t be glossed over with merely light clapping.”
Among other things, Goodman applauds a slew of nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, for “The Americans,” a show he calls “the best drama on television.” He also spotlights the attention received by “Mr. Robot” in the drama categories along with comedies including “black-ish” and “Master of None.”
