Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo has won a World Series title, twerked on Saturday Night Live, and even had his own cereal named after him, but he knocked another item off his celebrity checklist on Thursday.
The show is up for four Emmy nominations in the categories of best drama series, best lead actress in a drama series (for Elizabeth Moss), and best supporting actress in a drama (for both Ann Dowd and Samira Wiley). The show ended up racking up a staggering 13 Emmy Nominations, but instead of hearing about the news from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, she found out with the help of Rizzo.More news: Jerusalem: police, two Israeli officers killed
"Well, I'm a little bit in shock!" the Cubs fan told TV Guide.
Moss went on to praise all the people behind the scenes, who maybe didn't get a personal shoutout from these noms, "I'm so intensely proud of my cast and crew who put their blood, sweat and tears (literally) into this show". In 2017, one of the biggest winners was Hulu, which earned nominations in three top categories thanks to a solid haul for the acclaimed drama The Handmaid's Tale. "This is not a solo sport, and each and every one of them is responsible for helping make something we could be proud of", Moss said. If you are as addicted to The Handmaid's Tale as millions of other British viewers, then you will have witnessed FGM, sexual slavery, and ritualised, state-sanctioned rape.
