Stranger Things nominated for eight total Emmys including Best Outstanding Drama Series.

The 72nd Emmy nominations were announced on July 28 and Stranger Things had a strong showing with eight total nominations including Best Oustanding Drama Series.

Talk about domination in general, Netflix led the charge with a total of 160 nominations beating out all other major streaming services and networks.

Stranger Things season 3 broke many Netflix records when it was released on July 4, 2019, especially in the first four days. The series continues to grow and seems to get bigger and better every season.

Below, you’ll see all eight Emmy nominations for Netflix’s original series, Stranger Things.

  • Outstanding Drama Series
  • Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Drama Series
  • Outstanding Interactive Extension Of A Linear Program
  • Outstanding Sound Editing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (One Hour)
  • Outstanding Special Visual Effects
  • Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (One Hour)
  • Outstanding Stunt  Coordination For A Drama Series, Limited Series Or Movie
  • Outstanding Music Supervision

What a great list of awards for this amazing series to be recognized for!

Although having eight nominations is truly incredible, I believe that there were at least two cast members that were snubbed individually.

David Harbour, who plays Chief Jim Hopper, was surprisingly not nominated for any individual awards. We’ve seen Harbour transform his character, Hopper, over three seasons into a loving, fighting person who will go to the ends of the earth for the ones he loves and that includes sacrificing himself if need be. Luckily, he’s still alive!

But for me, I’m shocked that Dacre Montgomery was not nominated either in any fashion.

It’s hard to ignore the performance that Montgomery had in season 3 of Stranger Things. Striking many different emotions with the fans, Montgomery who plays Billy Hargrove, took his character to the next level. From his fighting scenes to his emotional ending at Starcourt mall, he put on a performance that was nothing short of amazing and Emmy worthy.

It seems that the Stranger Things cast gets snubbed year after year when it comes to individual performances so it’s at least good to see that the series itself is getting the love and recognition it deserves.

Stranger Things season 4 production is on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic but is expected to resume in Septemeber.

To see if Stranger Things takes home any of these awards, be sure to tune into the 72nd annual Emmy Awards on Sept. 20 at 8/7c on ABC. Be sure to stay tuned for any more updates on Stranger Things!
