Emmy 2017 noms for Westworld, Eleven and… Barb? Yes, everyone else is confused too

TODO alt text

It’s that time of year where the cream of the crop of the previous year’s television is recognised as the 2017 Emmy nominations roll in. This year, Westworld led the way with 22 nominations – tied with Saturday Night Live - as Stranger Things’Millie Bobbie Brown was the youngest individual nominee at 13-years old.

Not only did Stranger Things pick up 18 nominations, they also got a nod for outstanding guest actress in a drama series as Barb herself, Shannon Purser, was among the nominees. I love Barb to bits but, come on, she was in it for a cup of coffee – and I’m not the only one scratching my head. Look, I have tweets to prove it!

Check the full main list below to see how shows like Westworld, and Stranger Things fared – and who they are up against come September 17.

(Oh, and if you’re wondering where Game of Thrones is, season 6 was eligible for last year’s awards)
