Selena Gomez, Lizzo and Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) are among the music stars nominated at the 74th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, which will be presented on Monday, Sept. 12, at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Gomez is nominated for outstanding comedy series as an executive producer of Only Murders in the Building; Lizzo for outstanding competition program as an executive producer of Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls; and Glover for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series for Atlanta.
Glover won two Emmys for Atlanta five years ago. Gomez and Lizzo are both first-time nominees.
Many more music stars won at last weekend’s two Creative Arts Emmys ceremonies, where the bulk of the Emmys are presented. Performers Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent and executive producer Jay-Z won outstanding variety special (live) for The Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show. Adele won outstanding variety special (pre-recorded) for Adele One Night Only. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were among the winners of outstanding documentary (series) for The Beatles: Get Back. All of these music greats were first-time Emmy winners.
