Obviously this DC Comics animated show got a nom for Outstanding Comedy Series. Like, it’s Harley-frickin-Quinn.

What We Do In The Shadows

If What We Do In The Shadows didn’t get to sink its teeth into the Outstanding Comedy Series category, we’d probably have to protest on the streets of New York Cittaaaay.

Let’s hope the sensational sci-fi series that is Star Trek: Discovery is able to live long and prosper — and perhaps also win Outstanding Drama Series!

The Umbrella Academy

All that world-saving and intense character introspection earned Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy a well-deserved run at Outstanding Drama Series.

Interview with the Vampire
