The 2017 Emmy Award nominations were announced this morning by Veep star Anna Chulmsky and S.W.A.T. star Shemar Moore at the Wolf Theatre at the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center in Hollywood.

Leading the way with 22 nominations this year are Westworld and US President Donald Trump’s “favourite” show, Saturday Night Live. 

On a personal note, I am SUPER excited for Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia who both picked up a nomination in the Lead Actor in a Drama category for their portrayals of ‘Randall’ and ‘Jack’ on This Is Us.

Sterling stopped by the Roz & Mocha show back in November to talk about his role on This Is Us, check that out below.
