The Emmys will be awarded on September 12th on NBC and is one of the highest honors for television projects. These nominations are well-deserved for these shows and the people involved, and we’ll wait and see whether they take home the prize for any of them. Regardless, the nomination itself is an honor and it’s cool to see recognition for the work that was put into these shows.
