Miss the nomination announcements? We've got you covered.

Award season is among us. From the Oscars, to the Grammys, Tonys, and everything in between, it can be overwhelming to keep track of what's what and who's nominated. Here at The Sitch, we love all things award shows, so we've put together a guide to the 2018 Emmy Awards (so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show).


So...What's an Emmy?

Not to be confused with the fabulous Emmy Rossum, the Emmy Awards are the highest esteemed award for the world of Television. Film actors win Oscars, TV (and online streaming) actors win Emmys. The nominations for the 70th Annual Emmy Awards were announced last night.
