Stranger Things Season 4 received 13 Primetime Emmy nominations on Tuesday, including outstanding drama series. But the series received no acting nods for any of its stars which came as a shock to those who believed that, at the very least, Sadie Sink deserves to be nominated.
Sink and Millie Bobby Brown were sent in under the supporting actress in a drama series category but those eight nominations instead went to Patricia Arquette (“Severance”), Julia Garner (“Ozark”), Jung Ho-yeon (“Squid Game”), Christina Ricci (“Yellowjackets”), Rhea Seehorn (“Better Call Saul”), J. Smith-Cameron (“Succession”), Sarah Snook (“Succession”) and Sydney Sweeney (“Euphoria”).
Along with top drama series, Stranger Things received nominations for production design for a narrative period or fantasy program (one hour or more); casting for a drama series; single-camera picture editing for a drama series; period and/or character hairstyling; period and/or character makeup (non-prosthetic); prosthetic makeup; music supervision; sound editing for a comedy or drama series (one hour); sound mixing for a comedy or drama series (one hour); special visual effects in a season or a movie; stunt coordination for a drama series, limited or anthology series or movie; and stunt performance.
Those 13 Emmy nominations are for Volume 1. Volume 2 which consists of Episode 8 and Episode 9, was not released until after the submission cut-off, so Volume 2 of Stranger Things 4 will compete in next year’s Emmy race.
