This year’s Primetime Emmy Award nominations have been announced and Amazon has landed 16 nominations for their original series. Transparent, which took home 5 Emmy wins last year, has received the majority of Amazon’s nominations with 10 total. It is up for best comedy series and show star Jeffrey Tambos has been nominated for lead actor in a comedy. Tambor’s co-stars Judith Light and Gaby Hoffmann are both in the running for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy, while Bradley Whitford and Melora Hardin have been nominated for outstanding guest actor and actress in a comedy. Transparent has also received nods for production design, casting, costumes, and outstanding directing for a comedy by Dave Mandel.
The Man in the High Castle has been recognized for special effects, production design, cinematography, and main title design. Mozart in the Jungle is in the running for outstanding sound mixing for a comedy and Catastrophe has been nominated for outstandin writing for a comedy. The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards will held September 18th, and it’s worth noting that if Amazon wins an Emmy, there’s a good chance they’ll have a one day sale the following week that offers Prime membership for $68, like they did after last year’s win.
