  • Selena Gomez missed out on a nomination for outstanding actress in a comedy series, despite holding her own with comedy giants Martin Short and Steve Martin in “Only Murders in the Building.” “We’re a little dismayed that Selena didn’t get nominated because she’s so crucial to the trio, to the show. She kind of balances us. In fact, in some ways you can say that we got nominated because of her balance in the show,” Martin told Variety.
  • Netflix series “Stranger Things” garnered 13 Emmy nominations, but none of the actors received nods, despite Sadie Sink and Millie Bobby Brown’s strong performances in the latest season of the series, per Variety.
