The Last of Us

It’s time to grab your favorite gaming snack and do a happy dance, because HBO’s live-action adaptation of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us has been nominated for a mind-blowing 24 Emmy Awards! That’s right, this incredible TV show is taking the gaming world by storm and giving the critics something to talk about.

From best drama series to outstanding casting, The Last of Us has conquered a wide range of categories, proving its excellence in every aspect. We’re talking about nods for best directing (kudos, Peter Hoar, for episode three!), outstanding production design, contemporary costumes that make us drool, and the best writing that leaves us on the edge of our seats.

But let’s not forget the talented cast that brings the characters to life. Pedro Pascal, our beloved Joel, is nominated for best lead actor, and Bella Ramsey, the fierce Ellie, is up for best lead actress. They are joined by the remarkable Murray Barlett and Nick Offerman, who are nominated as best guest actors for their unforgettable performances in episode three. Can we get a standing ovation, please?

It doesn’t stop there! Lamar Johnson and Keivonn Montreal Woodard, who made lasting impressions in episode five, are also nominated for best guest actor. And let’s not overlook the amazing work of Melanie Lynskey, Storm Reid, and Anna Torv, who have secured nominations for best actress.

Now, brace yourselves, fellow gamers, because The Last of Us is facing some fierce competition. Succession and The White Lotus are also flexing their award-worthy muscles with 27 and 23 nominations respectively. But hey, even if our beloved game adaptation doesn’t win a single Emmy, there’s still reason to celebrate. The Last of Us has made history as the first live-action video game adaptation to be recognized by the esteemed Hollywood community.

But wait, there’s more! Our gaming universe is expanding, and more adaptations are on the horizon. From Netflix’s gripping take on The Witcher to Paramount+’s exhilarating Halo series, we’ve got plenty to keep us entertained. And get ready, because Peacock’s Twisted Metal, starring the charismatic Anthony Mackie, is revving up its engines and ready to hit our screens very soon.

So, mark your calendars and show your support for The Last of Us at the Emmy Awards ceremony on 9th and 10th September. Let’s keep our fingers crossed, stack up on gaming fuel, and celebrate the game that has taken our world by storm!
