Let’s start by being brutally honest: the Emmys in the Oscars and the Grammys don’t matter anymore. They are all 20th century relics. Their usefulness has run their course, and there from a time and place when pop-culture was given to us instead of us choosing what we wanted..
But there still is a bit of beauty in the dying arts of awards. And when we know that someone in a movie or a TV show or on an album really deserves an award and recognition for their performance, then getting that said award seems very justified.
Fast forward to today… the Emmy’s have gone upside down!
“Stranger Things” Season 4 garnered 13 Primetime Emmy nominations on Tuesday.
Emmy Nominations included Outstanding Drama Series, but acting nods for Sadie Sink and Millie Bobby Brown were not among them. The two “Stranger Things” stars were submitted in the supporting actress in a drama series category, but those eight noms instead went to Patricia Arquette (“Severance”), Julia Garner (“Ozark”), Jung Ho-yeon (“Squid Game”), Christina Ricci (“Yellowjackets”), Rhea Seehorn (“Better Call Saul”), J. Smith-Cameron (“Succession”), Sarah Snook (“Succession”) and Sydney Sweeney (“Euphoria”).
For those who have seen season four of Stranger Things, it can be arguably said that Sadie Sink carried the program. Yes, Millie Bobby Brown was amazing. Other than the cast for as well. But each and every time that Sadie appeared as Max on screen, the emotions would run high and her acting was impeccable.
And with these award nominations snubbing them both, it showcases how dramatically out of touch the Emmys are. And, it makes a mockery of their process.
