“Stranger Things” Season 4 has garnered 13 Primetime Emmy nominations, including outstanding drama series.
But the Netflix sci-fi series received no acting nods for any of its stars, a shock to those who believed that, at the very least, Sadie Sink was a shoo-in among the 22 “Stranger Things” cast members submitted for noms. This marks the second time that the show has been shut out of all Emmy acting categories, with the previous being no acting nominations given for “Stranger Things” Season 3.
Sink and Millie Bobby Brown were sent in under the supporting actress in a drama series category for their work on “Stranger Things 4,” but those eight noms 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.
