It looks like HBO has the opportunity to bag more than one Primetime Emmy this year. The TV series Silicon Valley has been nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy.
The show won its first Emmy in 2015 for Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program as well as Outstanding Single Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series. Furthermore, the series was also nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series last year, but lost to sister show Veep.
The two-time Golden Globe nominee will once again be competing against Veep this year. However, both HBO series face challenge from Modern Family, Transparent, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Black-ish and Master of None.
Since Silicon Valley’s first season, the series has been nominated twice on the Critics Choice Television Awards. In 2015, the show received appreciation by winning Best Comedy Series, and T.J. Miller won Best Supporting Actor.
Silicon Valley has been nominated twice for a Satellite Award. In 2015, the show managed to win the Best Television Series category.
This year, Silicon Valley actor Thomas Middleditch has been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, along with others from the production team.
Silicon Valley’s success has been unstaggering. Furthermore, the show was renewed for season 4, expected to premiere in 2017.
While two HBO shows has been nominated for Comedy, the studio’s Game of Thrones has also been nominated for a Primetime Emmy this year.
The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards has been scheduled to take place on September 18 at 5:00 p.m. PDT. Furthermore, the event will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.
