The category is… outstanding drama series, outstanding lead actor in a drama series and four more categories!
On Tuesday (July 16), Ryan Murphy’s FX series Pose received 10s across the board from the Television Academy when the show was nominated for six different awards. The series will go up against awards season behemoths like Game of Thrones, Killing Eve and five other nominees for this year’s best dramatic series, while Billy Porter will vie for the coveted dramatic acting award. The show was also nominated in four technical categories.
Fans of the show quickly took to Twitter to celebrate the good news, reacting joyfully to the Academy’s historic inclusion of the transgender-focused show in this year’s awards. Check out some of our favorite reactions below:
