Paulie’s Perspective: 2021 EMMY NOM LIST

It’s that time of year again kids! And there are like a zillion Emmy nods, so I’m just going to cover the few that I know about, and maybe just two categories a week, who knows. These things does’t air until September, so i got like 5 weeks.  Anyway, for this week, I’m just gonna lay out the list. I am leaving out the talentless awards like Reality Competition Host and Variety Talk Series – all those guys just read off cue cards every night anyway. I dunno why they are up for Emmy awards.  Okay, so here’s the list. I will comment next week, on the first few, and just go down the list from there, spewing my idiotic thoughts and predictions. Have Fun! See ya Thursday!
