Here Are All The Badass Ladies Nominated For Emmys—Including Barb From Stranger Things

Share

While there may never be #JusticeForBarb on Stranger Things, we can rest a little easier knowing that Shannon Purser, the actress who played her, is getting the recognition she deserves IRL. This morning, the Emmy nominations were announced and Shannon was among an impressive group of badass women nominated, including Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman for their roles in Big Little Lies. Elisabeth Moss, Alexis Bledel, Ann Dowd and Samira Wiley also nabbed nominations for their roles in The Handmaid’s Tale; Melissa McCarthy was nominated for her hilarious Sean Spicer impersonation on Saturday Night Live; and the late Carrie Fisher was recognized for her guest appearance on Catastrophe.

One show with tons of badass ladies that’s noticeably absent from the ballot: Game of Thrones. No, this wasn’t a snub—it wasn’t eligible this year because the premiere date for the seventh season was too late. (We guess that’s fair because they made us wait forever for the seventh season.)

Below, a full list of the nominees. The 2017 Emmys will air on September 17 and will be hosted by Stephen Colbert.
