Doctor Who Series 11 Emmy Snub
Doctor Who failed to receive a single nomination in the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards.
Though the show has usually been ignored, the mainstream media made much more noise this time around, proclaiming Jodie Whittaker’s first series as “groundbreaking”.
So the lack of any further acknowledgment is somewhat surprising.
Game of Thrones meanwhile broke records, earning a whopping 32 nods.
The BBC submitted Doctor Who for the following categories:
- Best Drama Series
- Best Drama Actress: Jodie Whittaker
- Best Drama Supporting Actor: Tosin Cole, Bradley Walsh
- Best Drama Supporting Actress: Mandip Gill
- Best Writing (Drama): “Rosa”
- Best Costumes (Fantasy/Sci-Fi): “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos”
- Best Music Composition (Series): “Demons of the Punjab”
- Best Production Design (Narrative Period/Fantasy, One-Hour or More) “The Ghost Monument”
