Last Thursday, July 14, Emmy nominations were announced. Outlander has been nominated for two awards – Outstanding Costumes for a Period / Fantasy Series, Limited Series or Movie and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Period Program.
Congratulations to the show – and particularly the costume and set design departments for their nominations!
I am somewhat shocked that the series as a whole wasn’t nominated nor were the show’s lead actors – Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies. There were incredible performances this season. I specifically remember watching “Faith” and thinking there was no way that Cait couldn’t be nominated for the episode. You felt each and every agonizing emotion Claire was going through, thanks to the powerful performance from Cait.
While it’s a shame the show didn’t see more Emmy nominations, it’s great to have been nominated! And there are still the Golden Globes.
Congratulations to the entire cast and crew for a wonderful season!
