Upon the unveiling of the 74th Emmy awards nominations for the year 2022, Stranger Things’ fans have taken to social media to show bitter feelings of resentment. Twitter is stormed with upset comments and questions in the past few hours. Though the franchise bagged 13 primetime nominations this year, none of them were for the outstanding cast. Given the striking performance, especially by Millie Brown and Sadie Sink, viewers were sure enough of either to bring home at least one-star cast award.
Stranger Things bags 13 primetime nominations for Emmys

Stranger Things Emmy award nominations this year for the show were for outstanding drama series, outstanding casting for a drama series, and outstanding production design for a narrative period or fantasy program. It also made its place in each of the outstanding single-camera picture editings for drama series, period and character hairstyling, period and character makeup, non-prosthetic as well as prosthetic. The show scored two more for sound editing and sound mixing for a comedy or drama series and another for outstanding music supervision. It also bagged one for outstanding visual effects in a season or movie. Last but not the least, another two for outstanding stunt performance and outstanding stunt coordination for a drama or movie.
The rational reasons for no star cast Emmy nominations for Stranger Things
All in all, the show succeeded in getting nominated for 13 well-deserved categories. Although it didn’t breach the previous record of 18 nominations for season 1, it’s still a proud number. Also, the fact that the most intense and spine-chilling episode got viewers hyperventilating, crying, and laughing all at the same time. “The piggyback” of Stranger Things came after the deadline for the Emmy Awards Nominations giving way to optimism to hope for a bash in the upcoming year. Fans are elated by the show’s endeavors but are reasonably disheartened for snubbing the casts which are the leading light of the franchise.
