Happy Thorsday, friends! It's also Emmy nominations day! Did any of your favorite shows, limited series, actors, writers, or directors pick up a nom-nom-nom today? As expected, genre fare walked away with quite a bit of them (I'm making heart eyes over that drama actress category, personally), but it'll be interesting to see how things shake out when the 70th Annual Primetime Emmys air on September 17!
