The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recently announced the nominees for this year’s visual effects Emmy awards. In the Outstanding Special Visual Effects category, a mix of fantasy, sci-fi and drama-filled shows are contending for the top prize (Game of Thrones, which has won the Emmy in the outstanding special visual effects category for the past five years, is not a contender this year).
Meanwhile, shows with effects of the more invisible kind will battle it out in the category of Outstanding Special Visual Effects in a Supporting Role.
Here’s a look at the nominees in both categories. The winners will be announced at the Creative Arts Awards and Ball held on September 9 and 10.
