Ozark Leads Emmy Nominations For Departing Series; This Is Us and "Black-ish" Receive Little Love

On Tuesday morning, Netflix's crime drama Ozark took the top spot among exiting series for Emmy nominations, followed by popular shows like Insecure, Killing Eve, Black-ish, This Is Us, Goliath, and Better Call Saul. 

In the categories of Outstanding Drama Series, Drama Lead Actor

(Jason Bateman), Drama Lead Actress (Laura Linney), Drama Supporting Actress (Julia Garner), Drama Guest Actor (Tom Pelphrey), Production Design, Casting, Cinematography, Directing, Contemporary Makeup (Non-Prosthetic), Music Supervision, Writing, and Sound Mixing, Ozark received 13 nominations after completing the second half of its fourth and final season in April. 

Garner, who has received two victories out of the show's 32 nominations since 2018, is back in the Supporting Actress competition. Bateman, who also directs and executive produces the program, had previously been recognized for his efforts in the field of directing. 

With three nominations for Lead Actress in a Sitcom Series (Rae), Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (Half-Hour), and Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Comedy Series, HBO's Issa Rae comedy Insecure, which wrapped up its fifth and final season in December, placed second. Rae and Larry Wilmore's program has previously had 11 nominations, but it has only ever taken home a single award for Single-Camera Picture Editing. 

Then there is Killing Eve on BBC America, which is based on the Villanelle books by Luke Jennings. Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh both received nominations for Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Comer won the statuette in 2019, earning the only nomination out of 19 for the program. 

Black-ish received just two nominations for Outstanding Contemporary Costumes and Contemporary Hairstyling when its eight-season run concluded in April. The popular sitcom from Kenya Barris's creator has received 24 nominations throughout the course of its run, but it has only ever won once—in the category of Contemporary Hairstyling in 2020. 

Reservation Dogs, Selena Gomez, Yellowstone, This Is Us, and Other Emmy Snubs 

The NBC family drama This Is Us, which received just one nomination in the category of Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics, was also mostly passed over today. Ron Cephas Jones won Drama Guest Actor on two occasions, and the program had previously received 38 nominations. Other previous winners from the program include Gerald McRaney and Sterling K. Brown (Lead Actor) (Guest Actor).

Goliath, an Amazon noir starring Billy Bob Thornton, tied the Dan Fogelman series for the day's only nomination. 

The critically regarded Better Things on FX, created and starring Pamela Adlon, and Grace and Frankie on Netflix, starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, were among the ending programs that were completely passed by today. 

Better Call Saul, which recently returned from hiatus for its final run of Season 6 episodes, garnered seven nominations for Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Bob Odenkirk), Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Rhea Seehorn), Writing, 

Music Supervision, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing. Surprisingly, despite receiving 39 nominations in all, the popular Breaking Bad prequel from writers Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould has never received a prize. Even so, it will have two more chances to make up for it because the second half of Season 6 will be eligible for nomination for the Emmys in 2019. 

On September 12, the 74th Emmy Awards will be live-streamed on Peacock for the first time in addition to being televised live on NBC.
