Fandom Uncovers Who Fans Would've Nominated for an Emmy

September 10, 2022

Fandom is gearing up for the Emmy's by diving into our fan data to see who fans really think should have been nominated for this year's top categories of Best Actor, Best Actress, and Outstanding TV Show. When the 2022 nominees were announced, there was criticism around the lack of diversity among nominees - but fans sure don't see it that way.

  • Out of the top 10 fan-favorite actors in TV across our platform, only one (Bob Odenkirk) was actually nominated for an Emmy this year.
  • Looking at this year's top 10 TV shows on our platform, only one is actually nominated for a top TV show, while three other shows were nominated in other categories (unrelated to top TV programs).
  • Only one actress from our top fan picks for favorite actress was actually nominated as a top (supporting) actress. Other "best actresses" did not receive a nomination in any categories this year. Surprising?

These insights speak to criticism that nominees do not always reflect actual top picks - and our data came straight from the fans whose voice is most important!
