The Emmy nominations are out! And the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are involved! Before we get to the good news, a piece of bad news: Prince Harry and Oprah’s excellent AppleTV+ series, The Me You Can’t See, was not nominated for any docu-series Emmys – it was submitted in the Outstanding Hosted Non-Fiction Series or Special. It was eligible! The series dropped on May 21 and the cut-off for Emmy eligibility is the last day in May. Now, what’s sort of funny is that TMYCS didn’t get nominated… but Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special was nominated in that category, Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series Or Special category. It’s up against shows like Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy and The United Shades of America. The Crown’s Season 4 also picked up a million nominations. HAHAHA.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s sit-down with Oprah Winfrey has just been nominated for an Emmy. Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special, which first aired in the U.S. on March 7, was called out among the five nominees of the Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series Or Special category when the nominations were announced on Tuesday.
It was a big day for royal watchers: Netflix’s The Crown tied with Disney+’s The Mandalorian to score the most nominations (24 apiece!) for the 2021 awards. Specifically, this past season of The Crown told a fictionalized version of the fraught period when Harry’s parents, Princess Diana and Prince Charles, met, married and began their family under the pressures of royal life. Emma Corrin and Josh O’Connor were both nominated in the lead actor – drama category for their performances as Diana and Charles, respectively.
The Crown’s Season 4 was amazing, really. Just great television, wonderful acting, good writing. I hope Emma Corrin and Josh O’Connor are both heavily considered in their categories. That whole thing caused Prince Charles to run a completely unhinged campaign against The Crown as well, because suddenly two new generations were exposed to how terribly he treated Diana.
Would you like more good news? Baldemort’s sad “I’m keen about the environment too!!” documentary, Prince William: A Planet For Us All wasn’t nominated for anything. Probably because that is the incorrect use of a colon.
