Here are all the queer favourites nominated at the 72nd Emmy Awards

LGBTQ+ stories are poised for success at the Emmy Awards this year.

Schitt’s Creek, which came to a bittersweet end earlier this year with its sixth season, received acting nominations for all four main cast members – Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Dan Levy, and Annie Murphy – as well as Outstanding Comedy Series. Deserved.

RuPaul earned his fifth consecutive nomination for Outstanding Host for RuPaul’s Drag Race (he won the past four years), where he will compete against Queer Eye stars Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Tan France, Bobby Berk and Jonathan Van Ness.

RuPaul’s Drag Race Untucked received another nomination for Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program, as well as Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka and Shangela’s critically-acclaimed new HBO series, We’re Here. Drag Race alum Raven is also up for her second nomination in the Outstanding Contemporary Makeup For a Variety, Nonfiction or Reality Program (Non-Prosthetic) category.

Thanks to her work on the debut season of HBO’s teen drama Euphoria, Zendaya picked up her first ever Emmy nomination, as did Jeremy Pope for Hollywood – Ryan Murphy’s latest series for Netflix – with fellow cast members Jim Parsons and Holland Taylor.

Despite continuing to received widespread critical acclaim for their performances, the only cast recognised cast member from Pose is Billy Porter, who made history last year as the first openly gay Black man to be nominated and win in any lead acting category.

Other LGBTQ+ stars to pick up nominations include Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black), Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live), Titus Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. The Reverend), Wanda Sykes (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Cherry Jones (Succession) and Andrew Scott (Black Mirror).
