Emmy Nominations 2017: SNL, Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, Jimmy Fallon, and John Oliver Are Making History

This morning, the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations for 2017 were announced. And boy, are we excited! From exceptional drama nominations to outstanding lead actress nominations for the Emmy 2017 season, this year's nominees are nothing short of spectacular. But, the Variety Series genre certainly caught our eye amongst all the 2017 Emmy Award nominations.

Stephen Colbert has earned 6 Emmy nominations this year, and that is certainly an achievement in itself. However, he could also be breaking records this year if he wins multiple awards, since he is also hosting the Emmys. Multiple personalities, like Neil Patrick Harris and Jimmy Fallon, have been close. However, Colbert could be the first to win more than one Emmy while hosting!


Donald Trump's presidency has also fed enough content to late-night talk shows and variety shows to last a lifetime. And this Emmy 2017 nomination certainly showed it. Check out the 2017 Emmy nominations below!
