A slew of HBO’s popular shows and movies are getting Emmy nominations, but it’s not clear why they’re being given so many nods.
The nominations were announced by the network on Monday.
While the awards show is meant to be an acknowledgment of HBO programming, it’s been a long time since the network has had an Emmy nomination for a show, and the number of nods have been very low.HBO didn’t say why it’s giving so many of the show’s nominations to The Leftovers, which is an adaptation of the popular novels by Brian Aldiss and Tom Perrotta.
The network has been working on the adaptation for years, with the pilot of the series being released last summer.
The show has a cast that includes Damon Lindelof, Melissa Leo, Carrie Coon, and J.J. Abrams.
The network has also made waves with its Emmy nominations for the first two seasons of The Sopranos and Breaking Bad.
In its first season, The Soprano won the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series.
In the second season, it was nominated for Out of Order.
And in the third season, the show earned the Outstanding Achievement in Television Writing for its first episode.
The Sopraffinale won a Best Drama Series Emmy for the second consecutive year.
But The Leftover, which was picked up for a second season on Netflix last fall, didn’t get the Emmy nod.
The first season was nominated four times, and it was given five nominations.
It won the Outward Achievement in TV Writing award in the fifth season.
