EMMYS 2016:

RuPaul, Sarah Paulson, Ryan Murphy, Lily Tomlin lead LGBT nominees for TV's big award

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

The best ever field of nominees was revealed for the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards on Thursday morning, among them several LGBT actors, directors, writers and TV show hosts.

RuPaul scored his very first Emmy nomination, under his professional name RuPaul Charles, in the category of Outstanding Host For A Reality or Reality-Competition Program for his work on 'RuPaul's Drag Race.' He'll compete against two other LGBT performers: Jane Lynch, recognized again for 'Hollywood Game Night,' and Tim Gunn, co-host of 'Project Runway.'

Sarah Paulson nabbed double nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie for her stellar portrayal of Marcia Clark in 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story' and Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie for her role in 'American Horror Story: Hotel.' She is the heavy favorite in the former category.

Ryan Murphy, an Emmy winner for 'Glee' and 'The Normal Heart,' is seeking a third award for directing the episode 'The Ashes of Tragedy' from the mini-series 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,' which earned a whopping 22 nominations total, including Outstanding Limited Series. Murphy is the creator and producer of the FX program, which debuted a year ago as 'American Crime Story.'

Lily Tomlin received a second nod for starring in 'Grace and Frankie,' a Netflix series centered on a pair of older women abandoned by their Gay husbands; she's up for Outstanding Lead Actress in A Comedy Series. Also earning a second nomination is Tituss Burgess, who performed with the Seattle Men's Chorus earlier this year, recognized for his supporting role on 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.'

The Transgender-themed series 'Transparent' is again in the running for Outstanding Comedy Series, as well as cast members Jeffrey Tambor (Lead Actor-Comedy), Judith Light and Gaby Hoffman (Supporting Actress-Comedy), plus an Outstanding Guest Actor In a Comedy Series nod for Bradley Whitford, who won last year, and Outstanding Guest Actress In a Comedy Series nomination for Melora Hardin.

Many newcomers got noticed this time around, including the spy drama 'The Americans' and both its leads, Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell, Mr. Robot and its redhot star, Rami Malek, Ellie Kemper ('Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt'), Aziz Anzari ('Master of None'), Niecy Nash ('Getting On') and Tracee Ellis Ross ('black-ish').

Jimmy Kimmel will host the Emmys on September 18, being held in Los Angeles.
